PPM performance issue.

Hi All,

We are using PPM 7.1 with sp 10. We are already using 3 clusters but still facing many performance issue. We are using PPM over the WAN so I guess dynamic compression might be a bit useful.
Can any one please suggest me how can I implement dynamic compression in PPM.
Please advise if I can do anything else to improve performance.

Thank you,

Re: PPM performance issue.


By default dynamic compression is turned on, but in any event it is controlled by the GZIP_ENCODING_ENABLED server.conf parameter.

Can you be more specific with what "performance issues" means? Portlet load times, overall response times, network latency issues?

Hi Eric,

Thanks for response.
Specifically in performance issue we are facing problem with timesheet submission, Request approval and overall loading time.

So you mean I just need to set GZIP_ENCODING_ENABLED to true in config file to enable compression?

Re: PPM performance issue.

Dynamic compression is enabled in PPM by default, but if you use Apache/IIS to as a load balancer in cluster env, you need to enable dynamic compression in external web server. Please find the SysAdmin.pdf as a reference.

Re: PPM performance issue.

Hi Zheng,

Thanks for information!

Presently we are using clustered server with Apache Web Server. I couldn't find any information regarding dynamic compression with clustered server in SysAdmin.pdf. Shall you please put more light on how can I enable dynamic compression in a clustered server.

Thank you,

Re: PPM performance issue.

You may have already found this by now, but I just happened across this post so for future ref, the instructions in the 7.5 SysAdmin are:

To enable compression of dynamic assets on an Apache-based Web server:
1. Navigate to the /conf directory and open the httpd.conf
file in a text editor.
2. Add the following to the httpd.conf file.
# gzip config begin
LoadModule deflate_module modules/

SetOutputFilter DEFLATE
BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4 gzip-only-text/html
BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4\.0[678] no-gzip
BrowserMatch \bMSI[E] !no-gzip !gzip-only-text/html
SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \
\.(?:gif|jpe?g|png)$ no-gzip dont-vary
Header append Vary User-Agent env=!dont-vary

# gzip config end
3. Save and close the httpd.conf file.
//Add this to "OnDomLoad" event
