Improving .NET Application Performance and Scalability

Saturday, January 10, 2004
A newsgroup posting caught my eye and took me to the home of the Microsoft Performance Team. They are working on a guide for anyone interested in the performance and scalability of .NET applications and soliciting feedback.

After reading just two of the chapters (on ASP.NET and ADO.NET) I realized this guide is going to be the reference for .NET performance. It leaves very few stones unturned and mentions or references almost every perf tip I know of (and quite a few I did not). Why do jagged arrays perform better than multidimensional arrays? When could an ASPX page get compiled into a single asembly? The guide is super.

I thought of a few ideas while reading through, and since they are soliciting comment I sent some along. I'm interested to see or hear if they have an impact.
