slow load for Assembly.LoadFile

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
 

Hi,

I’m developing a C# application on my development PC which runs 32 bit windows. The application has a main exe part and several alternative dll’s. The specific appropriate dll is loaded based on a configuration file during run time using Assembly.LoadFile. My builds output code to “Any CPU”.

I noticed that the code runs much much slower on a target 64 bit machine than on my development machine, and I believe the difference is in the dynamic load – which is near instant in the development machine and takes something like 20 seconds on the 64 machine (during the 20 seconds the task manager shows that the application takes 100% CPU).

I tried building the dll’s as x64 but got no improvement.

What could be the problem?

Slow load time of custom assembly on x64 compared to x86.

  
I am developing an application that automatically generates assemblies using the CSharpCodeProvider (.Net Framework 3.5).  These assemblies contain a single class with a very large number of local variables and methods.  After compilation I create an instance of this class (using Activator.CreateInstance) to be used elsewhere in the application.  When the application is deployed on a 32-bit system (tested on Win 7 Prof 32-bit and on Win XP) the CreateInstance method returns after 1 or 2 seconds, i.e. it first JITs the assembly before creating the instance.  However, on a 64-bit system (tested on Win 7 Home 64-bit, Win Server 2003 64-bit and Win Server 2008 64-bit) CreateInstance takes up to 5 minutes to return. Is there any reason why it would be that much slower on a 64-bit machine? I have tried many different options when compiling, such as setting the platform to x64, using the /optimize flag, etc, but none of these have made a difference. I also tried calling PrepareMethod on all the method in the class.  When I do this in the 32-bit environment, it takes approximately 10 seconds.  In the 64-bit environment it takes more than 3 minutes. As a last resort I tried ngen before constructing the object, but this made no difference in the execution time.

Could not load file or assembly - Web Deployment Project

  

Hi,

I have the following projects in a solution :

- A Web Application

- A Class Library

- A Web Deployment project

The Web Application compiles and run fine when I don't go through the Web Deployment Project. However when I try to use that, I get the following error:

Error 1 An error occurred creating the configuration section handler for hibernate-configuration: Could not load file or assembly 'NHibernate' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. (F:\Folke\Folke.csproj_deploy\Release\web.config line 4) 1 1 Folke.csproj_deploy

"An error occurred creating the configuration section handler for hibernate-configuration: Could not load file or assembly 'NHibernate' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. (F:\Folke\Folke.csproj_deploy\Release\web.config line 4)"

This is the beginning of my Web.config:

Slow page load during a list query one time during the day

  

We have a monitoring tool set to check to see if the home pages for our 3 web apps load in under 60 seconds every 10 minutes.  All 3 web apps load in under 3 seconds on every 10 minute check except for one exception.  One check every day one of the web app's home page takes longer than 60 seconds to load.  This happens at 11:45PM when there is very little user usage on the environment.  The characteristics of this page are as follows: The only thing on the page is a list view web part which was added by the browser.  The page has not been customized with SPD or code at all.  The list that it pulls is a simple links list that has 281 items on it.  The view pulls all 281 items and displays them in sets of 100.  I cannot find any associated event in the server events and/or SharePoint ULS logs nor are there any daily sharepoint timer jobs running at that time.  Our full index happens at midnight with incremental happening hourly.  Our enviroment is 2 WFEs, 1 App/indexer and we have a separate SQL cluster backend.  

Could someone lead me possibly in the direction I should take next in my troubleshooting?

Load dynamically assembly with dependencies

  
I'm trying to download .dll by having some url (http://somedomain.com/myassembly.dll) and load it into appdomain. Once I download this assembly I can't load it into appdomain, because it has some dependencies. Some of these dependencies I can found on my local machine (such as .NET libraries), but some of them I have to download and load into appdomain. So there are several questions: 1. How to determine list of dependencies without loading assembly into appdomain (and by having only byte[] as assembly) 2. How to determine which of these dependencies can be found locally Thanks, Paul.

MVC2 Could not load file or assembly 'xxxx.Models' shared hosting

  
Hello,I have an mvc2 site that runs fine locally but when i deploy it to my shared hosting account i keep getting this error.Could not load file or assembly 'AppMVC2.Models, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.I have run Reflector againts the dll to see what dependencies the dll has, I then took each one of the dependant dlls and set them to copy local in the project and deployed them all to the shared hosting account even ones that should be on the server like System.Web. except for mscorlib.dll, but i still get the error.I have also tried to bin deploy and deploy the code files and get the same error.I have seen people write about fusion log but i don't see any examples on how to get this running on shared hosting.Just wondering does anyone else have any recommendations on how to track down the source of this problem?
