Sharepoint Warmup Script

It is useful to warm up a site after app pool recycling or after a site creation in development environments. I found a very simple script which I made even simpler:

$url = "http://takana"
$wc = new-object net.webclient
$wc.credentials = [System.Net.CredentialCache]::DefaultCredentials
$wc.DownloadString($url) | out-null

For more sophisticated warmups Wahid Salemi provided an interisting script to warm up your Sharepoint.

By the way. Let us save it as a powershell function. Take a look at sharepointryan’s functions. Let’s create a proper function of that:

function WarmUp-Site {
	Use this PowerShell script warm up a site.
	This PowerShell script uses net.webclient class to download the page and trigger warmup.
        WarmUp-Site -url http://intranet
	This example warms up http://intranet site.
