Is It Possible To Optimize WebForms To Perform As Fast As MVC?
Jul 13, 2010
There's so much hype about ASP.NET MVC these days, but the truth is that ASP.NET webforms is not going anywhere for some time. Is there any way for current developers to optimize ASP.NET webforms to perform as fast as ASP.NET MVC?
I have noticed a significant difference in speed between ASP.NET MVC and ASP.NET webforms. MVC is a lot snappier and loads pages faster than webforms. Can I achieve the same with ASP.NET webforms by optimizing it? If yes, what would you recommend?
I have the following situation: excel-like application, that is accessible from internet. 2 users access it and I want the moment one user clicks on a cell, the other user to see that. (like in google documents).
My questions are:
Can I do this using standard UpdatePanel, while I keep the bandwidth usage to its minimum (in other words, only information for the current cell is passed, not the whole huge table), or should I implement my own ajax scripts on the page in order to get it optimized.How to do the updating : one way is to have a timer on the page and update it periodacally, the other way is to make a request and keep the connection opened till a change is made (using some heavy timeout, let's say 1 minute). Can you give me clues (like ajax libraries I can use, can I do this with the standard ajax controls in asp.net, ways to implement the live connection)?
If I have an object I need to store in viewstate, what kinds of things can I do to optimize the size it takes to store the object? Obviously storing the least amount of data will take less space, but aside from that, are there ways to architect the class, properties, attrbutes etc, that will effect how large the serialized output is?
The web app uses XML from a web service, which is then transformed to HTML using XSLT. The app uses a HttpModule to get the XML using AddOnPreRequestHandlerExecuteAsync.
XmlDocument - stores the xml. XslCompiledTransform - stores the transform, is cached in Application. Asynchronous HttpWebRequest using BeginGetResponse/EndGetResponse HttpModule with hooked AddOnPreRequestHandlerExecuteAsync events.
I do not want to use the XPathDocument unless there are no other possible optimizations. It would take some complicated code to get all the XML together without the ability to write to the XmlDocument. There is additional XML that does not come from the web service that must also be added to the document.
I wanna bind atleast 30,000 records in a gridview from a sqlserver table. I want to bind only 50 records at a time with grid view. The grid has also paging and when I click next page then next 50 records should be shown and another next page's click another 50 records.
How can I optimize this thing. I want that If 30,000 records are binding then grid should be work as binded 50 records.
I have an asp.net mvc application that spawns a Process as follows:
Process p = new Process(); p.EnableRaisingEvents = true; p.Exited += new EventHandler(p_Exited); p.StartInfo.Arguments = "-interaction=nonstopmode " + inputpath; p.StartInfo.WorkingDirectory = dir; p.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = false; p.StartInfo.FileName = "pdflatex.exe"; p.StartInfo.LoadUserProfile = true; p.Start(); p.WaitForExit();
Before going further, I need to know whether, e.g., pdflatex.exe is a managed code or a native code? Edit 1 I need to consider this because: (Hopely I am not wrong...) Each Asp.net application runs in an separate/isolated AppDomain as opposed to a separate/isolated process. A native executable cannot live in an AppDomain.to be continued.. Shortly speaking, I hope my site does not spawn a new process for each request. Because a process is more expensive than an application domain. Edit 2 My asp.net mvc application allows users to submit LaTeX input commands such as $ax^2+bx+c=0$ to be converted to a pdf file rendering an quadratic equation. Behind the scene, this web app will spawn a process executing pdflatex.exe. The job of pdflatex.exe is converting the LaTeX input commands to pdf document.
we have this problem but can't find a solution. We have an application that references something like 24 dlls. When you invoke the application the very first time (after the application is for any reason reset) it takes 25-40 seconds to start loading contents.
This is what we tried:
1. precompile and publish everything in release mode 2. removing pdbs from bin folder 3. put strong named assemblies into GAC 4. set application to debug = false
consider that the whole bin folder is composed by 24 dlls for a total size of 28MB. Just 4 of these dlls are strong named and they are more and less 25MB. Nothing seems changed. What happens EXACTLY when the application is started is something I couldn't find in any book nor forum/blog/post... What can we monitor more to find where the problem is?
HttpResponse.End() seems to throw an exception according to msdn.Right now i have the choice of returning a value to say end thread(it only goes 2 functions deep) or i can call end().
I know that throwing exceptions is significantly slower (read the comment for a C#/.NET test) so if i want a fast webapp should i consider not calling it when it is trivially easy to not call it?
-edit- I do have a function call in certain functions and in the constructor in classes to ensure the user is logged in.So i call HttpResponse.End() in enough places although hopefully in regular site usage it doesn't occur too often.
I've been developing a game using Silverlight 4 and silversprite (http://silversprite.codeplex.com/)
This game is HEAVILY content dependent, using a lot of audio and images. My content folder is around 90 mbs worth of stuff. And because of that, my XAP file is around 60 MB, and takes 5 minutes to download from the website before any user can start playing.
I am using Visual Web Developer 2010 to create my site and load the XAP. Is there a way where I can take content out of my XAP and put it in my ASP.net site project? Or perhaps upload my content files to the site's storage?
This would make my XAP file much quicker to download.
i have a trigger that executes asp.net page with method that first retrieves from DB users with needed details and then emails them with information they need like ie. users that does not have an image in their profile. Once i get data from DB i build large string with encoded HTML and assign it to MailMessage.Body tag. There are about 20000 users per action/night who get the mail. Stored procedures just get users based on criteria i need nothing to optimize there (after proper indexes been made). How do i optimize it? Can i create sort of queue in ASP.NET that it will be executed all day long without one time action? Maybe i can use async actions to send few emails per time.
I am working on a project where in one SQL query i am using joins to fetch data from diffrent tables. The execution time of the query is 20 seconds for 80 rows on my local server. How can i optimize this.
We are playing video(avi) in our web site .Its taking time to play the file .Nothing is showing for 2 mins.Is there any way to streaming the file.for playing video file code is from this linkhttp://www.daniweb.com/code/snippet216568.html
basically, the InstellingGegevens table gest filled in by some procedure from another server. the thing i then need to do is check if there are new records in this table, and fill in the new ones in Instellingens.
this code runs for like 4 minutes on 15k records. how do I optimize it? or is the only way a Stored Procedure?
this code runs in a timer, running every 6h. IF a stored procedure is best, how to I use that in a timer?
I have one question regarding how to make the below mentioned type of query more optimized so that mine query perfomace can be increased.
Select a.name1,a.address1,b.field3,c.field4,d.field6,e.field7 from a inner join b on a.id=b.id inner join c on c.id=b.id inner join d on d.id=c.id iner join e on e.id=d.id union all Select a1.name1,a1.address1,b1.field3,c.field4,d.field6,e.field7 from a1 inner join b1 on a1.id=b1.id inner join c on c.id=b1.id inner join d on d.id=c.id iner join e on e.id=d.id union all Select a2.name1,a2.address1,b2.field3,c.field4,d.field6,e.field7 from a2 inner join b2 on a2.id=b2.id inner join c on c.id=b2.id inner join d on d.id=c.id iner join e on e.id=d.id
All the above three select query at last using the same inner join condition, means last two inner join condition are the same for all the select query.
Is there any way so that this query can be optimized?
how to make asp.net page fast render as fast as HTML page, this is my main and urgent requirement,
Acctualy My page conatins lots of data, images and videos from the database, so m facing the problem in page rendring, rendring is too slow, and client requires as fast rendring as HTML, i have studied a lot and found.....
Retrive data with the help of XML creates fast page rendring mean Retrive data from database in XML and then bind all the data in page from that XML file.
