Fixing ASP .NET Performance Bottlenecks

Fixing Four ASP.NET Performance Bottlenecks

ASP.NET has become developers’ foremost choice in developing high traffic web applications. Because of its scalable nature, ASP.NET application tier can seamlessly handle thousands of concurrent users with their millions of requests per day. Such high traffic ASP.NET applications are deployed in a load balanced web farm with a load balancer routing user requests to…

How to Optimize ASP.NET Core Performance with Distributed Cache?

ASP.NET Core is starting to become popular for developing web applications because of its cleaner and lighter architecture and cross platform support. And, many of these ASP.NET Core applications are high traffic and run in a load-balanced multi-server deployment. In fact, it’s very common to see 10-20 server web farms and some are much larger…

ASP.NET Output Cache in Microsoft Azure to Improve Performance

Microsoft ASP.NET Output Cache provides functionality to cache rendered content of ASP.NET pages or user controls for a specified duration. This allows your ASP.NET application to serve all subsequent requests from the cache instead of re-rendering and re-execution of a page. You add the <% @OutputCache %> directive on the page to use ASP.NET Output Cache.…

ASP.NET Session State Store in Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Azure provides a platform for ASP.NET applications in the cloud. Very often, these applications are high transaction and mission critical in nature. Therefore, it is very important that these applications are able to scale and that there are no data loss if a web server goes down at any time. ASP.NET Session State needs…

ASP.NET Session State Sharing across Multiple Azure Regions

Many high traffic ASP.NET applications in Microsoft Azure are deployed over multiple Microsoft Azure regions in order to handle geographically separated traffic. In these situations, the load balancer always sends traffic to the Microsoft Azure region closest to the user for faster response time. In this scenario, you may run into a situation where you…

Distributed Cache as NHibernate Second Level Cache

NHibernate is a very popular object-relational mapping (ORM) solution for .NET applications because it simplifies your database programming. As a result, many applications using NHibernate are high traffic in nature and therefore face scalability bottlenecks in the database. To tackle this, NHibernate provides a caching infrastructure so that applications can use an in-memory cache store…
