Microsoft SharePoint is the fastest growing product in Microsoft history. Its adoption rate has been exponential with millions of documents being stored daily. With its growth critical documents and procedures are now being stored in SharePoint. It is fundamental that SharePoint maintains its healthy status, and application performance is a key component for a successful deployment and adoption of SharePoint.
These steps are there to help you with SharePoint performance to help organizations better understand the different ways and places SharePoint performance can be improved. SharePoint deployments are a combination of applications, services and databases where delivering a scalable, dynamic and efficient portal implementation can be a challenging task for even the most experienced IT professionals. Improvements can be made within or outside of the SharePoint infrastructure.
Step 6 Minimize Page Size
The SharePoint user interface is intended to make it easy for information workers to manage content and find resources. For users connected to the portal over the corporate LAN this doesn’t pose much of a problem but for disconnected users on slower WAN links or public facing websites the heavyweight nature of the typical SharePoint page can prove to be a real performance-killer. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to reduce the bloat and trim those pages down to a more manageable size.
First, when designing a new look and feel, it is helpful to start with a minimal master page. The master page contains all the chrome and navigation elements typically found on the top and left of a standard SharePoint page—things like the search box, global navigation, Quick Launch, Site Actions menu and other visual element. A minimal master page, as the name implies, removes unnecessary elements and allows designers to start with a clean slate that only contains the base functionality required for the page to render correctly.
