Cache Primer for Sharepoint with ADFSv3
The first time a browser hits a sharepoint site after a restart, the caches are empty, so the page can take a while to load. One can script something to silently hit a sharepoint web-frontends, causing it to build caches and preventing any real people from experiencing that.
This tool does this for a specific circumstance where it’s kind of hard to script it without better tools - where normal NTML authentication doesn’t work, because there is ADFSv3 authentication configured, and where there may be a number of web-frontends behind a load balancer.
I don’t know why this is required. I’m not a sharepoint admin. Maybe it’s an artifact of a particular setup.
- Simple install:
pip install sharepointcacheprimer
usage: sharepointcacheprimer [-h] config site [site …]
Connect to sharepoint site, authenticate, and load a page, thereby priming the caches. The configuration file should contain a section defining each site you are priming.
- positional arguments:
config configuration ini file site sites (section names) in configuration ini file to prime
- optional arguments:
- -h, --help
show this help message and exit
See the included ‘example.ini’ for details.
