Running IIS7 In Classic Mode Does Affect MVC Output Caching

Feb 25, 2010

I have a need to run an application in classic mode for backwards compatibility with a specific application, and am trying to understand what kind of impact that will have on the performance of an MVC application that is running on the site. If we put a few static file maps (for .js, .css, .png, etc) above the ASP.NET wildcard map to reduce the amount of processing by the ASP.NET handler, will we be approaching the integrated mode in terms of performance?

The thing i'm primarily concerned with is any effect this might have on output caching. I understand that integrated mode might (?) allow for the output cache to handle non ASP.NET content, but that isn't really a concern. We're more interested in ensuring that the MVC application has full use of the output cache. Empirically i've found that the two configurations operate on par when things go well, but if the page references resources that are not available, the integrated mode tends to fail much more quickly than the classic mode (e.g. 500 ms vs 10 seconds), reducing 'hang time' on the page load.

Can't Set HTTP Vary Header In IIS7 Classic Mode

Jan 16, 2010

First, a little background. I have written a custom HTTP compression module for ASP.NET. My development machine has Windows 7 Ultimate, which comes with IIS7. My production environment uses IIS6.

The problem I'm having is, Resource Expert Droid ( tells me that I need to add a header to my response to properly support compression: "Vary: Accept-Encoding"

On IIS7 in integrated mode, it works properly. However, in classic mode, which is how my application ultimately runs, I cannot get my code to output this header using any of Response.AppendHeader(), Response.Cache.SetVaryByCustom(), or Response.Cache.VaryByHeaders.

IIS7 Integrated Pipeline Mode Slower Than Classic?

Sep 20, 2010

we are running a complex 64-bit ASP.NET 2.0 application on W2008 R2 Standard and stress tests done with VS2008 Team System have indicated that integrated pipeline mode is 30% slower than classic mode.

We have compared the application traces extensively and it appears that integrated mode is uniformly slower than classic. That is, there is no single point that causes delays in integrated mode.

This is quite the opposite to everything Microsoft says about the integrated pipeline, so it might be that there is something quite wrong with the configuration of the integrated mode or the server. But we have not found any settings that would have any effect on this. Some complaints that Sharepoint and reporting services are slower in integrated mode can be found, but our application does not use them so this is quite likely unrelated.

Configuration :: Trigger IE9 To Render In Compatibility Mode Negatively Affect Performance On The Server?

Mar 17, 2011

Would adding "X-UA-Compatible: IE=EmulateIE7" as an http header to trigger IE9 to render in compatibility mode negatively affect performance on the server? I made the change today, adding it, but now some areas of our site are behaving sluggishly, though we did have a large number of changes come in overnight. I know that we can't single out this as the problem, but my boss seems to think it is.

What's Standard Practice To Make Sure One Slow Running Page Doesn't Affect Other Pages

Aug 31, 2010

Page A loads very fast; Page B loads very slowly and does some CPU-intensive things on the web server. I noticed that if someone is loading Page B, then Page A also loads slowly - for ALL users. What is the standard practice for making sure this doesn't happen? If multiple users are loading Page B at the same time then Page A is ridiculously slow. Is there an IIS setting, web.config setting, or hardware configuration I could use to make sure that the fast-loading pages aren't bogged down by other pages that need more time to load?

Installation :: Debug And Run Classic ASP On IIS7 Using VWD08 Express?

Mar 7, 2010

I'm trying the above - Visual Web Developer 2008 express edition with SQL Server 2005 express using VB code behind on 3.5 framework. I need to incorporate and amend some externally supplied classic asp pages, so switched to local IIS7 for compilation/run. I can run these pages, but am unable to amend them and have the changes reflected in what I see. Is this possible with this setup? Is there a configuration setup that I may need? Has anyone successfully done the above before?

Refresh # Include Files - Caching On IIS7 / ASP?

Jul 28, 2010

I have an ASP.NET master page which references a #include file as follows:

<!--#include virtual="/includes/"-->

I have modified the file /includes/ but the changes do not show up in pages. What needs to be done so modifications will be reflected? I need to avoid the following: restarting the server restarting IIS modifying web.config (doesn't appear to have any effect)
pretty much anything that causes the app domain to restart Any other options? Is there a setting which affects how long IIS caches #include files?

MVC :: Output Caching And Query Dependency?

Sep 21, 2010

I plan to use output cache for my page and also specify sql dependencyi succeded in doing it the following way


Suppose if i want to implement a dependency on the sql query , i create an sqlcache dependency object and specify the sql command to it.Set the notifications .But how do i add this sqldependency to the output cache?For example: if i need to add a file dependency, i give something like Response.AddFileDependency ("filepath"); is there any similiar command available for sqldependency as well? I'm confused about this because, most of the examples i've looked into, does a cache.insert , which defeats my purpose as it's object caching and not output caching. In a nutshell, is it possible to attach a sqlcachedependency to o/p cache inside the controller action

C# - How To Exceed The 60% Memory Limit Of IIS7 In Caching Application

Jun 11, 2010

Pardon if this is more serverfault vs. stackoverflow. It seems to be on the border.

We have an application that caches a large amount of product data for an e-commerce application using ASP.NET caching. This is a dictionary object with 65K elements, and our calculations put the object's size at ~10GB. Problem:

The amount of memory the object consumes seems to be far in excess of our 10GB calculation. BIGGEST CONCERN: We can't seem to use over 60% of the 32GB in the server.

What we've tried so far:

In machine.config/system.web (sf doesn't allow the tags, pardon the formatting):

processModel autoConfig="true" memoryLimit="80"

In web.config/system.web/caching/cache (sf doesn't allow the tags, pardon the formatting):

privateBytesLimit = "20000000000" (and 0, the default of course)
percentagePhysicalMemoryUsedLimit = "90"

Windows 2008R2 x64

Nothing seems to allow us to exceed the 60% value.

See screenshot of taskman.

Web Forms :: User Control Output Caching?

I have a user control (say PricingGrid.ascx) which generates a pricing grid on a given product's page. I pass the user control 2 parameters : currencyId and productId. The user control has output caching specified by


I am adding PricingGrid.ascx to my page programatically, i.e. using LoadControl [URL]If the user changes their currency and refreshes the page, the cached version of their original currency is still showing, until the 60 seconds expires. Is there any way to force the page to check :1) Does a cached version of PricingGrid.ascx with their new currency exist?2) If so, retrieve that version, and if not, create that version.If I output all the keys in the Page.Cache object on PageLoad, I'm not seeing my user control in the output.

Output Caching In HTTP Handler And SetValidUntilExpires?

Jun 8, 2010

I'm using output caching in my custom HTTP handler in the following way:

public void ProcessRequest(HttpContext context)
TimeSpan freshness = new TimeSpan(0, 0, 0, 60);

It works, but the problem is that refreshing the page with F5 leads to page regeneration (instead of cache usage) despite of the last codeline:


UPD: Seems like the cause of problem is that HTTP handler response isn't caching on server. The following code works well for web-form, but not for handler:


Are there some specifics of the caching the http handler response on server?

MVC - Enabling Caching Of The Compressed Page Output?

Sep 30, 2010

I've seen a number of options for adding GZIP/DEFLATE compression to ASP.Net MVC output, but they all seem to apply the compression on-the-fly.. thus do not take advange of caching the compressed content.

Any solutions for enabling caching of the compressed page output? Preferably in the code, so that the MVC code can check if the page has changed, and ship out the precompressed cached content if not.

This question really could apply to regular as well.

Caching - Controlling Output Cache Memory Usage?

May 17, 2010

I would like to use output caching with WCF Data Services and although there's nothing specifically built in to support caching, there is an OnStartProcessingRequest method that allows me to hook in and set the cacheability of the request using normal ASP.NET mechanisms.

But I am worried about the worker process getting recycled due to excessive memory consumption if large responses are cached. Is there a way to specify an upper limit for the ASP.NET output cache so that if this limit is exceeded, items in the cache will be discarded?

I've seen the caching configuration settings but I get the impression from the documentation that this is for explicit caching via the Cache object since there is a separate outputCacheSettings which has no memory-related attributes.

Here's a code snippet from Scott Hanselman's post that shows how I'm setting the cacheability of the request.

Web Forms :: Output Caching Doesn't Work With Rout Handler

Apr 22, 2010

I am trying to use output caching on my .net pages but it is not working when I use Route handlers to redirect request to actual page, but it works when I call the page directly.

also one more weird thing is that when I am debugging and using .net instance of IIS http://localhost:64293/test it is working, but when I deploy it and try to call the page it is not caching i.e. http://www.mydomain/test(but it works if I call the page directly)

I am using VS 2010, IIS 6.0, .net Framework 4

aspx page code is :

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" MasterPageFile="~/Site.master" Title="Not Found" %>
<%@ OutputCache Duration="300" VaryByParam="*" Location ="Server" %>
<script runat="server">
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
litPageTitle.Text = "<br/>Datetime: " + DateTime.UtcNow.ToString();

my global.asax.cs code is
