Startup Times

Behavior: Sitecore is taking a long time to start up

Issue: The ASP.NET worker process (w3wp) is checking digital signatures of one or more assemblies

Solution:

  • Verify the server has outbound access to the Internet

OR

  • Disable signature verification of assemblies in the machine.config file
  • <configuration>
    • <sitecore>
      • <runtime>
        • <generatePublisherEvidence enabled="false">

AND

  • Disable performance counters in the web.config file
  • <configuration>
    • <sitecore>
      • <settings>
        • <setting name="Counters.Enabled" value="false"/>
