Speed of server

Created: 27 Mar 2013 | 9 comments

I've noticed over time that my server has slowed down, especially the time it takes to get to different console pages.  The NS has the SQl locally on it and I am not a SQL guy by any means.  What can I do to help the performance/speed of my server?

SQL on the same server as the platform is a big red flag.  You really should consider moving SQL to its own server if that's an option for your org.

Check to make sure you have a good SQL maitenance plan in place.

Also, here's a Connect article that I wrote a few months ago that contains three things that really helped the performance of our platform:

Here's a link to the SQL tuning guide:

Please check the .NSE file it’s processed or not.....

C:\ProgramData\Symantec\SMP\EventQueue\EvtQueue

I have two folders there.  One is named Bad and the other Process.  The Process fodler is empty while the Bad folder has multiple folders in it.  What would be the next thing to look at?

If there's nothing in there then there's nothing to process.  The Bad and Process folders are for legacy compatibility and are no longer used.

Where exactly would that be located?  That is kind of one of those "set it and forget it" type things.
