stsadm -o warmupcollection And Other Good Things…

While I am in the process of creating a new virtual machine to host the new public beta of Office SharePoint Server 2010, I thought I would share a quick tip, regarding a toolset I use frequently. If you do any development work at all, or any sort of demonstration environment, you need to be aware of Scot Hillier’s SharePoint Development Environment Modifications project on CodePlex (

This is a collection of extremely useful tools for Visual Studio 2005 and 2008, some great STSADM extensions, and more. One of my favorite is mentioned in the subject of the post, and does exactly what it looks like. Taking the URL of a site collection, and warming it up. Useful after app pool recycles, IIS resets, etc., when everything is slow and sluggish as the JIT compiler loads up pages and gets them ready to go.
