This book helps to do away with the nightmare of slow websites by showing how to dramatically improve the performance of ASP.NET-based websites with the help of practical, step-by-step techniques. With the help of working code samples, this book pinpoints the areas related to all aspects of a website – server side, client side, code, images, and database, and teaches developers how to fix them.
ASP.NET Site Performance Secrets starts with introducing the reader to techniques for diagnosing performance issues using Waterfall charts, and this is followed with subsequent chapters focusing on each aspect of a website. Finally the book concludes with effectively load-testing an environment in order to measure the change in performance.
Through this book, developers will be able to prevent a shortage of worker threads in IIS with the help of asynchronous methods, and enable compression in IIS 6 and IIS 7 to cut file transfer times and bandwidth costs. They will be able to drastically speed up image loading, by exploiting browser behavior and by removing the hidden overhead in each image file.
