Monitor Page performance in SharePoint 2010 using Developer Dashboard

The developer dashboard is a useful component included with 2010

 Can be used to monitor page load and performance

It has three states

  •  On
  • Off
  •  On demand
  • Information contained on the dashboard:

      Times to render various components on page
     Page Checkout level
     Database query information
     Web part processing time
     Any critical events or alerts

Good for diagnosing problem web parts on a page or long list load time

The Developer Dashboard state can only be toggled with a STSADM command


STSADM –o setproperty –pn developer-dashboard –pv on


 STSADM –o setproperty –pn developer-dashboard –pv off


 STSADM –o setproperty –pn developer-dashboard –pv ondemand
