ActionsActions get work done in the workflowExamples:Create, copy, change, or delete list items/documentsCheck items in or outSend an e-mailCreate a task for person or groupCollect data via task for use in the workflowPause or stop the workflowLog workflow information to a History listSet workflow variables or perform calculations

ConditionsControl flow of the workflowExamples:If any value equals valueIf current item field equals valueCreated by a specific personCreated in a specific date spanTitle field contains keywords

StepsAllow you to organize your workflowSteps performed in Serial or Parallel

Top Performance killers

Top Performance KillersSearch Search uses SQL in a very I/O intensive fashion. It is sensitive to I/O latencies on the TempDB and the Query and Crawl file groups. One of the more difficult and time consuming jobs for a Search Administrator is to schedule the Crawls so they are not over lapping while keeping Search results freshIndexing/Crawling Crawling and indexing a large volume of information, documents, and Web pages requires a large amount of computer processing. The crawl process also consumes network and other resources. The SharePoint environment must be configured properly and monitored, to ensure that the crawling and indexing process does not adversely affect the service available to users. For example, content is usually crawled and indexed during off-peak hours when servers are underused in order to maintain peak-hour services for users. Applications that may be crawling content in your production environment Coveo Full and Incremental crawls to enable search Newsgator to Update all of the colleague information and RSS feeds DocAve for Reporting on and Performing SharePoint Management tasks WSS Search indexes the Help information provided with SharePointSharePoint Profile Import syncs people profileOffice Search Full and Incremental updates Coveo would replace

Top Performance KillersProfile Import Profile imports are used with NGES to sync your AD user details to provide access to your feed subscriptions and with SharePoint to sync your AD user details with your SharePoint User ProfileLarge List Operations Having large lists by itself is not necessarily a performance issue. When SharePoint Server renders the many items in those lists, that can cause spikes in render times and database blocking. One way to mitigate large lists is to use subfolders and create a hierarchical structure where each folder or subfolder has no more than 3,000 items. Identify large lists and work with the owners of the sites and lists to archive items or pursue other mitigation strategiesHeavy User Operation List Import/Write Another scenario of users having power they dont realize. Importing large lists using excel or synchronizing an access db. In SQL theres little difference between these types of user operations.Backup (SQL & Tape) Serious CPU and write disk I/O performance hit. SQL Litespeed or SQL 2008 backup with compression all help to lessen the performance hit.

Database PerformanceDatabase VolumesSeparate database volumes into unique LUNs consisting of unique physical disk spindles.Prioritize data among faster disks with ranking:SQL TempDB data filesDatabase transaction log filesSearch databaseContent databasesIn a heavily read-oriented portal site, prioritize data over logs.Separate out Search database transaction log from content database transaction logs.



Database PerformanceSQL TempDB Data FilesRecommended practice is that the number of data files allocated for TempDB should be equal to number of core CPUs in SQL Server.TempDB data file sizes should be consistent across all data files.TempDB data files should be spread across unique LUNs and separated from Content DB, Search DB, etcTempDB Log file separated to unique LUN.Optimal TempDB data file sizes can be calculated using the following formula: [MAX DB SIZE (KB)] X [.25] / [# CORES] = DATA FILE SIZE (KB)Calculation result (starting size) should be roughly equal to 25% of the largest content or search DB.Use RAID 10; separate LUN from other database objects (content, search, etc).Autogrow feature set to a fixed amount; if auto grow occurs, permanently increase TempDB size.
