2 minutes read

Speed up your local Sitecore dev instance with the following configs found over on this gist by Sitecore Platform Architect Kam Figy. This works for 8, not sure about 9.

Performance.Dev.config

    <!--
	A set of performance optimizations for development that vastly increase application startup time.

	Should not be used in production, as they largely disable forensic diagnostics that you'd want there over fast startup time after a compile.
	-->
	<configuration xmlns:patch="http://www.sitecore.net/xmlconfig/">
		<sitecore>
			<hooks>
				<hook type="Sitecore.Diagnostics.HealthMonitorHook, Sitecore.Kernel">
					<patch:delete />
				</hook>
				<hook type="Sitecore.Diagnostics.MemoryMonitorHook, Sitecore.Kernel">
					<patch:delete />
				</hook>
			</hooks>
			<pipelines>
				<contentSearch.queryWarmup patch:source="Sitecore.ContentSearch.config">
					<processor type="Sitecore.ContentSearch.Pipelines.QueryWarmups.RunQueries, Sitecore.ContentSearch">
						<patch:delete />
					</processor>
				</contentSearch.queryWarmup>
				<initialize>
					<processor type="Sitecore.Pipelines.Loader.ShowVersion, Sitecore.Kernel">

	</configuration>

Performance.config

    <!--
		A set of performance optimizations to improve speed and reduce unnecessary tasks.
		
		Should be used everywhere.
	-->
	<configuration xmlns:patch="http://www.sitecore.net/xmlconfig/">
		<sitecore>
