Web Performance Blog


This week I launched a new blog that will focus on the performance of Microsoft’s Web Stack.  This includes IIS, ASP.NET, MVC, WCF, WF, Visual Web Developer, WebMatrix and much, much more.  Content will be compiled from the performance team under Scott Guthrie that helps to deliver these products.

I hope that our blog becomes a valuable resource for you and I welcome your feedback.  Happy reading!

    The hardest part of performance is quantifying it – how do we determine what performance we are seeing, and what performance is expected.

    Often people resort to using a watch and clicking refresh. I have tried using Visual Studio load tests but it can be hard to get with a complex page with postbacks, and the results always seem to be different. Also due to caching issues it can be hard to tell if it is actually going to the server or not.

    It would be good if you you write something about easily getting some metrics for web sites.

    Thanks

  2. Thanks for the suggestion, Stephen.

    There are many different approaches to performance testing, even within Microsoft's web stack.  I'll put together post(s) that describe our approach for ASP.NET and what we consider our best practices.

  3. A comprehensive UP TO DATE overview is very much needed. Thank you for the pointers.
