Answer to your feedback:

  • Where can you run this tool ?
    • You can run this tool from anywhere in your network. Because everything is powershell call and I hope every machine has windows powershell installed(in-built with OS). 
    • But if your machine/laptop in running in a Domain(let's say North America) and your SharePoint servers are hosted in a Western Europe domain, then I would recommend to run this tool in the same domain where your SharePoint servers are hosted to monitor it faster/quicker. Otherwise it will be slow because of network bandwidth.
    • But one of biggest advantage of using powershell calls is that: If you are running this tool for the 1st time for any test, it will take time as it takes, but if you run the same test again and again, it will be faster. Because I believe by the time, connection between your machine and SharePoint servers was established on the 1st test, so it only checks server objects.
  • Is there any possibility to enable Auto Refresh ?
    • Yes, I have uploaded the latest build exe (1.1) where you can find Auto Refresh feature.
  • Is there any possibility for live monitoring ?
    • There is no live monitoring, you can enable Auto Refresh feature to test on certain intervals.
    • Latest Update: Live Monitoring for CPU is ready. I will publish it very soon.
  • EXE doesn't run on my 64bit windows 8.1 version ?
    •  please change the Compatibility of the EXE file to Windows 7. Follow the link to change.
  • Alternative way, if you are somehow unable to test using excel sheet

    • you can click on Admin Panel(top right corner and put your servers with comma) to do the Test. See the steps here for your reference.
  • Didn't see a option to run as farm admin account
    • You need to hold Shift key and right click on the EXE -> Click on Run as different user -> Put your farm account credentials.

Manage IIS in SharePoint 2010 Using PowerShell Script

On your day-to-day activity as a SharePoint Administrator, you always need to monitor web sites, application pools in your SharePoint farm. Especially after the application deployments, I see there are many times, these websites and application pools got stopped in many servers and you need to login to each and every server and verify them and start them.

Here I have developed the below scripts where you do not need to login to each server, you just need to login to any one server in a farm and execute the below scripts which will remotely verify the websites, application pools and show you the results. There is also a possibility to start them if anything is stopped in any server in the farm.

Especially if you have a large SharePoint farm with multiple WFE servers, it will be very helpful to manage from one server. You do not need to login each server and manage them. You can save a lot of time!

Additionally there are two scripts to restart IIS and SharePoint services in the whole farm.  

Steps to follow:

Login to any server in Farm - > Copy the attached zip file and extract it -> Open SharePoint 2010 Management Shell -> Execute the below ps1 files.

Note: You will find Sam.Functions.ps1 file which contains below functions definitions.
  • Get all the Application Pools which are stopped in the SharePoint 2010 Farm
  • Start the Application Pools which are stopped in the SharePoint 2010 Farm
  • Get all the web sites which are stopped in the SharePoint 2010 Farm
  • Start all the web sites which are stopped in the Farm(If Default web site is stopped in a server, then it will skip that server)
  • Restart IIS in all servers in the SharePoint 2010 farm
  • Restart SharePoint services in all servers in a SharePoint 2010 farm

Note: For start/restart scripts, it will ask to you confirm(yes/no) in powershell window before it execute. So that you can take a decision before execute them.

Hope you like it!

Please find attached zip file containing all script files.
