I have Sharepoint 2010 application that runs smoothly during certain times of day however, whenever it feels like: the CPU usage hits 100%; the ASP Request Execution Time indicator flashes a warning; the Processor Queue Length indicator flashes a warning and the Memory indicator flashes a warning.

Sometimes, not a single warning is flashed.

I have been using Idera Sharepoint Manager

I have increased the cache limit and that seemed to alleviate the problem for a little while. We've also increased from 1 to 4 processors.

The warnings still appear during various times of day and these are not constant. I have cancelled out the probability of timer jobs slowing down the application.

Anyone have any suggestions?

  • what are your servers specs? – TZHX Jan 15 '13 at 9:22
  • I second TZHX - the info provided is pretty vague. A wild guess - any search crawl that may be involved? – SPArcheon Jan 15 '13 at 9:45
  • It’s a VM with 4GB RAM There is no search crawl schedule setup on it – Yav2881 Jan 15 '13 at 10:03
  • Is it part of a farm, or a stand-alone install? What's the clock speed? 4GB RAM sounds dangerously low to me, most SP2010 VM's I've used sit above that level when idle. – TZHX Jan 15 '13 at 10:06
  • This is our dev environment. It has a SQL server and an App server on the farm. We've attached a piece of the production content db on this dev server.Clock speed is 2.53 Ghz, The problem is not with our VM though, the issue is at our client on their production environment which are in a farm and have 8GB RAM each – Yav2881 Jan 15 '13 at 10:14
