Article: SharePoint Demands Performance and Scalability

By Iqbal Khan (Technology Evangelist) Logo

SharePoint has become an extremely popular Microsoft product. As is well known, it's a portal platform and provides a great number of needed applications for collaboration among different company groups or even between different companies. It also includes process management, document management and other major applications, all part of SharePoint's array of features.

It allows you to develop other applications, as well, either extensions of these applications or completely new applications in the SharePoint platform. The goal is to allow you to rapidly develop a new application without having to start everything from scratch.

However, this rapidly growing popularity has its flip side, and it's not encouraging. As increasing numbers of people use it, major performance and scalability bottlenecks start to occur. They revolve around the fact that SharePoint makes heavy use of the SQL Server database for everything it shows. This includes pages shown to users, including structured data or documents.

How To: Configure & use evictions in NCache

Alachisoft Videos

A cache always has a limited size to which it can add objects to it. When a distributed cache reaches its maximum storage size with eviction turned on, a specified ratio of items start evicting from cache in order to create space for new objects. If cache reaches its maximum storage limit and eviction is turned off, items will neither be evicted nor added to the cache any further.

If you have deployed cache in a system where information transactions are occurring very frequently and you want to ensure every new piece of information gets space in cache then the eviction option in NCache should be turned on.

Turning on eviction:

You can enable Eviction Policy for both Clustered (Distributed) and Local Cache. Here is how you can turn on eviction from NCache Manager:

  • Launch NCache Manager
  • Click on the Policies tab (If tab pane is not there, double-click on the cache to show the tabs)
  • Set the eviction policy using the drop-down menus on the Policies tab
