Sharepoint Foundation 2010 is really sluggish


We recently migrated a sbs 2003 sharepoint portal to the new sbs 2011 sharepoint 2010 portal, and whilst the migration went really well, the access to try and open a page in the portal is really slow and sluggish.

Any suggestions as to why this is happening?

The Server has 32GB RAM, and over 4TB of free space.

how did you do the upgrade? Which SQL Server version/edition are you using? Any customized solutions / master pages/ layouts?

Any errors / warnings in the windows event log and in the SharePoint central administration?

Perhaps you might want to use the developer dashboard to check what part of your page loading / rendering takes how long:

Hi Thanks for your comments. the details are:

We ran through a document from microsoft about moving SBS 03 SP to SBS 2011 SP using the backup and restore features and moving the database as well.

The database we are using is SQL 2008 R2 and we have taken the "helpdesk" feature and the other standard layouts from SP 2003 into the new version.

This error in the event viewer appears daily at 04:00ish
The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPSqmTimerJobDefinition (ID e4df6c83-159b-4070-a803-50a893b3a245) threw an exception. More information is included below.

Data is Null. This method or property cannot be called on Null values.

Apart from that nothing else.

I'll check the MSDN article as well.

Further investigation shows:

Google Chrome has no problems at all
IE with no add in's is better but still slow

>IE with no add in's is better but still slow

What version?
Have you tried compatibility mode?
tekniteAuthor Commented:

Version 8,9 and 10
Yes we have tried compatibility mode with no joy.
I don't have an answer but wanted to ring in.  SBS 2011 with SharePoint Foundation 2010 and same problem.  Only fix I found was to use Chrome.
