First, I would like to mention that, I am a database administrator, not a SharePoint Admin. we have a SharePoint 2010 site which provides a specific form. It was working fine until recently which start taking a long time to load the page and sometimes it even fails. The problem is not persistent, it starts running fine for few hours and the problem return back again.

I am monitoring it form the database side and it is not related to the number of users/high traffic. The jobs run fine even with a large number of users accessing it and sometimes the issue is there while even with only limited users connected.

I set up both performance monitoring and profiler trace and the result indicates that there is a higher number of blocking whenever this issue occurs. I went further and analyze the execution plan of each stored procedures involving on the blocking and found out that all those processes that are involved with the blocking also runs fine the on some occasions. From these results, I come to a conclusion that there must be some kind of Jobs running on the SharePoint side which cause this performance degradation and the blocking we are seeing is because of the stored procedure is waiting to get a requested resource (parameter) to be available.

However, the SharePoint admins keep telling me that there is no job running during this time. I have researched everything I could and but could not find the issues.

Can anyone of you guys give me a suggestion that I have to look after or monitor that can help me to identify the root cause of this problem? I highly appreciate any kind of help.

  • What the content of this form? Is there a custom web part or It is the default SharePoint form? Do you face this issue for all forms? Dec 19, 2017 at 23:56
  • Yes, this is the default SharePoint form. The issue is only on this site(all forms on this site). Forms for the other site runs just fine.
