  • As an additional information.

    The website is on Azure S2 Plan and the CPU usage is below 20%, RAM usage is at 40%.

    Any advise would be appreciated.

  • Hi,

    Whenever a performance problem arises on a Web App, I always recommend this checklist:

    1. Does your Web App depend on other Services, like Azure SQL? If so, where are these services located? It is always adviced to deploy services that use each other on the same Region / Resource Group to lower network latency.
    2. Where is your Web App located and where are your users originating from? You might be hitting network relaying latency and is not a performance issue.

    Taking these things into account, there are several tools that you can use to find performance bottlenecks:

    1. New Relic, Azure partner, shows you in their dashboard the performance of each part of your Web App, the DB calls, the latency of your code and Controller / Actions, it's great to find problems and it's free.
    2. Application Insights. It helps by logging important and relevant information regarding your Web App's performance, much like New Relic, but it's provided natively in Azure.

    I hope these tips help out, Web Apps have by no means bad performance, it all depends on your Web App design and the resources you are providing, we have Web Apps that are using MVC and serving 2000-3000 concurrent users using Standard pricing tiers without problems.

  • What makes you say the site is slow? I thought the load time was more or less fine. The one thing that bugged me was that the main graphic at the top was about 2s delayed behind the rest of the page, but this could be fixed by making the main graphic more light-weight.

    Is there something about the page load time that seems long in particular? Looking at the timeline in dev tools, it seems nothing is individually taking all too long but rather that there is simply just a lot of stuff that gets done.
