Just a simple quick tips for all you guys out there. A couple of students have come back and asked me – “How did you enable that really nice dashbord”. It’s simple, easy and safe.
If you think the below is to much, then check out Wiktor Wiléns blog for a nice farm scoped feature moving this into the gui (and some other stuff also)
Anyways, here you go:
Via STSADM: stsadm -o setproperty -pn developer-dashboard -pv OnDemand
Via PowerShell: (Get-SPFarm).PerformanceMonitor.DeveloperDashboardLevel = “OnDemand”
The value OnDemand can also be On or Off (On=Always shown, OnDemand=Shown of request, Off=Never shown)
