Project 2010 Ignite – Day 3

It was the last day of Project Ignite 2010.  It has been a great couple of days.  Christophe and Jan have been brilliant.  The size of the event was perfect for learning and asking questions.  The attendee group was a good mix of Microsoft Partner like integent!, customers, and MSFT employees.


Today covered four report topics, Administration, Operations, and Customization.  Another comprehensive day.  Christophe and Jan – great job.


These are the highlights from Day 3 that I wanted to share with those that were not able to make it.  Enjoy.

  • Logs:  Best Practice – put Log files on Shared Drive rather than server.
  • ULS Log: Free download
  • Usage Logging:  ULS Logs provide administrators with a great mechanism to diagnose what's wrong with the system when something goes wrong, but there are times when you want a overview of what's happening in your SharePoint deployment when things are going well.
    • For this, SharePoint 2010 provides you with the 'Logging Database' which contains all the events that are happening in the deployment. This information is collected by a service, the usage service, which collects system usage information and periodically imports them into the database.
  • SharePoint Health Monitor:  Can be used to facilitate troubleshooting efforts by proactively identifying problematic sites, pages, etc.  Leverages Usage Logging Infrastructure.
  • Usage Logging:  Provides definitions on four unique categories (Security, Performance, Configuration, and Availability)
  • Developer Dashboard:  The developer dashboard is a useful component included with 2010.  It can be used to monitor page load and performance and has three states (On, Off, and On demand)
  • Password Management:  For Farm-level
