.NET 4 Web Application Startup Time

I was chatting with Jonathan Hawkins and some of the folks on the ASP.NET team about performance and Jonathan mentioned the startup time for large ASP.NET applications is improved on .NET 4. There are some improvements in the CLR and in ASP.NET itself that helped. If you have a giant app, you should do some tests.

CLR Inside Out: Improving Application Startup Time


Visual Studio is a wonderful development environment, whose IntelliSense®, integrated debugging, online help, and code snippets help boost your performance as a developer. But just because you're writing code fast doesn't mean you're writing fast code.

An ASP.NET 4 Web Application Using the SqlTableProfileProvider - Doable or a Time Sink?

Have hundreds of ASP.NET developers been wasting dozens of hours each on something that can't be made to work in ASP.NET? This is too weird! I've scoured the Web in vain looking for an example where someone has implemented the Microsoft SqlTableProfileProvider in an ASP.NET Web application . (The SqlTableProfileProvider  lets you store Profile data in a normal way rather than as difficult-to-manipulate blob data.) There are plenty of implementations using the Web site model, including fellow...(read more)

Why my application always complain request is time out??

Below is the configuration file, i didn`t do any modification on it. and i got a very weird situation. first my application run in this way, it was a back end library, every few second, it will send a web request to a central server for information update. but when i test it, after my back end library was launch for a while, it always complain timeout. and cannot send any message to the server. so what is wrong with my application?????  is there anything to do with the configuration file? <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> <configuration> <system.serviceModel> <bindings> <wsHttpBinding> <binding name="WSHttpBinding_IEAVService" closeTimeout="00:01:00" openTimeout="00:01:00" receiveTimeout="00:10:00" sendTimeout="00:01:00" bypassProxyOnLocal="false" transactionFlow="false" hostNameComparisonMode="StrongWildcard" maxBufferPoolSize="524288" maxReceivedMessageSize="65536" messageEncoding="Text" textEncoding="utf-8" useDefaultWebProxy="true" allowCookies="false"> <readerQuotas maxDepth="32" maxStringConten

Using datediff to calculate elapsed time

Hi..my app requires an elapsed time calculation that I have done like thisCONVERT(Varchar, (DATEPART(dd, GETDATE() - DateAdded)-1) * 24 + DATEPART(hh,GETDATE() - DateAdded)) + 'h:' + CONVERT(Varchar, DATEPART(mi, GETDATE() - DateAdded)) + 'm' AS ElapsedTimeThis works.. I can then colour my grid view cells  accordingly using the substring function.. the problem is that I have been told that using GETDATE three times is not a good use of resources, is it possible to use the Datediff function to get the same result?thanksDan

Client Application Services - Role service cache time out bug

Hi All, For people using Client Application Services with WPF, be aware of this bug. You can configure the "cache time out" for roles to be fetched again from the service. (In the visual studio dialog, Properties -> Services -> Advanced) This means the roles are cached on the client (in a file). If the application asks for roles again, they are not fetched again for "cache time out" time. When you set this value, it goes into your App.config, transformed into seconds. So if you choose 1 minute, the App.config has: cacheTimeout="60".   However, when using the ClientRoleProvider (for instance to do something like clientRoleProvider.GetRolesForUser("SomeUser")), this cacheTimeOut is interpreted in Minutes, not seconds! To prove my point, check ClientRoleProvider.Initialize method:   string temp = config["cacheTimeout"]; if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(temp)) _CacheTimeout = int.Parse(temp, CultureInfo.InvariantCulture);   Later on, in ClientRoleProvider.GetRolesFromDBUser (what's in a name?), you see: _CacheExpiryDate = cd.RolesCachedDateUtc.AddMinutes(_CacheTimeout);   Testing also shows this behavior. So be aware, and always put the value in minutes in your App.Config!   Regards, Koen

Performance of XBAP in .NET 4 degrades after a long idle time.


A few of my clients are using XBAP application running over .net 4 client profile in IE8. The operating system they use is windows XP (service pack 2 or 3) on all their machines. We've had no issues during install of the .net framework or our XBAP application but many of them are complaining that after keeping the xbap open for a long time their computer begins to slow down considerably. This specially happens when program is left open without using it for some time. On my own development system which is a windows 7 machine with full .net framework installed i haven't experienced such issue.

I checked for resource usage of the application but there is no significant increase in memory usage. The CPU consumption however becomes quite high, which I suspect is the reason for degradation of performance during these episodes. If this was a single case i would have ignored it for some glitch on their system but this is happening on many machines and I suspect this has got something to do with .net framework on xp machines.

I don't see any reason for why this should be happening. Is there any documented bug, report related to this ? Are there any compatibility issues of .net 4 with other common programs running in xp?  Do you have any idea on why this could be happening ? What kind of data should i provide you s

Web Application Load time issue


Dear All,

I have a web application that is using a single page. This page has 2 multiviews and each one of them has around 10 views. Each of the views contain a grid and a form. My main problem is that when Switching views my application takes too much time (Around 5 seconds). I am using the three tier model though, that is; I have a Busingess Logic Layer and a Data Access Layer and I am using Object Data sources.

I am so confused about the main reason for the huge load time my website requires. In addition, I am not using any images within my views which might need high load time.

Please help me out in this
