I am a Project Server and SharePoint consultant but my main focus currently is around Project Server.
I have been working with Project Server for nearly five years since 2007 for a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner in the UK, I have also been awared with the Microsoft Community Contributor Award 2011.
I am also a certified Prince2 Practitioner.

A quick blog post to show the recommended SQL Server and database settings for optimal performance of your Project Server environment. See the SQL queries below along with the TechNet documents for reference.

SQL CLR:

sp_configure ‘clr enabled’, 1
go
reconfigure
go
Print ‘CLR Enabled’

SQL Server MAX Degree of Parallelism (Specific for SharePoint 2010):

sp_configure ‘show advanced options’, 1;
GO
RECONFIGURE WITH OVERRIDE;
GO
sp_configure ‘max degree of parallelism’, 1;
GO
RECONFIGURE WITH OVERRIDE;
GO
Print ‘Max degree of parallelism set to 1′

Server-wide default fill factor:

sp_configure ‘show advanced options’, 1;
GO
RECONFIGURE;
GO
sp_configure ‘fill factor’, 70;
GO
RECONFIGURE;
GO
PRINT ‘Default server-wide fill factor set to 70 %, restart the SQL Service’

Auto_Close and Auto_update_statistics_async:

Update the database names for your Project Server PWA databases.

Alter Database VM353_PWA_Archive
Set AUTO_CLOSE OFF, AUTO_UPDATE_STATISTICS_ASYNC ON
Alter Database VM353_PWA_Draft
Set AUTO_CLOSE OFF, AUTO_UPDATE_STATISTICS_ASYNC ON
Alter Database VM353_PWA_Published
Set AUTO_CLOSE OFF, AUTO_UPDATE_STATISTICS_ASYNC ON
Alter Database VM353_PWA_Reporting
Set AUTO_CLOSE OFF, AUTO_UPDATE_STATISTICS_ASYNC ON
PRINT ‘Project Server databases auto close set to off and auto update stats asynchronous set to on ‘
