SpiraTeam (ALM) slow start performance

Monday, May 22, 2023

Helo Community,


Currently the ALM software takes almost 60 seconds to start (before the login mask appears).

How can I speedup the starting process?

There are no warning/errors in the windows event logs.

Only some Information are displayed from:

  • Search-ProfileNotify (Event-ID 5)
  • Desktop Windows Manager (Event-ID 9027)



… and a warning from the past.

This is normal unless you change the IIS setting to avoid the application pool idling.

This is because when there is inactivity, IIS puts the application to sleep. That way it will take 60 seconds to spin back up:
