Performance Issues, Assistance Required


Hi all,

We're having a lot of performance issues around Episerver on a prelive environment, and I'm hoping someone could give me some pointers on what to look at with regards to configuration etc? What things are good to check?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Some of the things I usually think about are


  • SQL server and IIS on separate machines.
  • Blob files on its own drive.


  • Caching configured for static files.
  • Application pool configured in accordance with EPiServer recommendations.


  • Output/donut caching implemented for handling heavy loads.
  • Caching of frequently loaded items like the menu
    (A usual caveat is having a highly personalized menu system).
  • Page load not deferred by subsystems loading external information.

Maybe this will get you started?
