Optimizing your web content management portal

One of the most common problems with this kind of MOSS sites is the time to load the home page (or any other page). The first thought is "We need to add more WFE to the farm", but if you have not any complex component (flash, custom web part, …) the most probable problem will have the weight of the page. In order to reduce it you can follow this article which explains the principal techniques. I wish to remark two of these techniques: enable the HTTP compression on the server and avoid charging the core.js and core.css to the end users (core.js is not necessary for them and core.css will be override by your custom CSS).

In order to check it in this page you can check quickly what is the weight of your page and with this plug-in for FireFox you can calculate (objectively) the load time of any page.

Enjoy it!
