How to test a SharePoint site?

Hello,

I have a SharePoint 2010 site that at times performs sluggish.  I like to perform a test that excludes DNS, proxy server and other network infrastructure to validate that the SharePoint application is working OK.  Could I perform a test on the SharePoint server and bring up the site as http://localhost?  Would this exclude DNS, proxy server and networks if I just run the site locally on the server?

Thanks,

Paul

If you set an Alternate Access Mapping and make sure to give the account which will run the test atleast read access to the site.

Just out of curiosity - why are you trying to exclude DNS? I have seen latency issues from poorly configured name servers a number of times.

Also, take a look at PAL : http://pal.codeplex.com/

This looks like a decent tutorial for it : http://yalla.itgroove.net/2012/07/using-pal-to-analyze-sharepoint-performance-monitor-counters/

For some users, they have latency problems connecting to a SharePoint server that is locally in their office.  While others do OK. If people use a different proxy server, they get very good performance when using SharePoint.  When they use a different proxy server, they see 404 errors and credentials are prompted, along with pages not responding. Some users are on Windows 7, while others are on Windows 8.1 or 8.  Its seems people are having different experience with SharePoint.  So, I like to prove the SharePoint application is running OK, and then look at other areas
