Infrastructure decision while working on the Virtual Machine ( VM ) environment of SharePoint 2010/2013 Application Server
In one of the project we have SharePoint 2010 site experiencing the performance issue while it is moved to VM environment from the physical environment. During the analysis I observe that the VM does not having the concept of dual core or quad core. That does mean the CPU of VM is always behave as single core.
That’s the catch. We simply take decision of increasing the number of CPU’s and increase the RAM from 8 GB to 16 GB, below are the steps to follow,
- Login into Virtual Center environment
- Shutdown Server the specific APP Server of SharePoint 2010/2013
- Go to Edit > Setting
- Choose Option CPU and increased to 4
- Choose Option Memory and increased to 16 GB
Once upgrade the CPU numbers and RAM, SharePoint experiencing the drastic improvement in performance.
