Performance Logging

If Secret Server experiences page loading issues, there is an option available to turn logging on to help track down points where SQL  performance may be causing a problem.  To enable logging an application setting needs to be added.  Adding the setting differs depending on which version of Secret Server you are using.

If there is a web-appSettings.config file in the directory where Secret Server is installed you should add the setting there.  If there is no such file, then the setting should be added to the web.config file.

 

In either case you should add the following key to the appsettings section of the appropriate configuration file:

 <add key="IsPerformanceLoggingEnabled" value="true" />
So it should look like:

< appSettings >
.............
<add key="IsPerformanceLoggingEnabled" value="true" />
</appSettings>

 

After navigating to pages where loading is slow or hanging you can view the log by changing the URL in your address bar to view the AdminPerformance.aspx page.

This log can be helpful in diagnosing an issue if you take a screenshot of the Data and Pages datagrids and add it to a support ticket. (No Secret information is displayed on these grids)
