IIS Application Pool Initialization - Warming up a login request...Is it possible? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm working on a web app which is experiencing slow first hit performance whenever the app pools are recycled. Subsequent requests are always pretty quick, but that first 'cold' run is considerably slower.

    I've deployed the app pool initialization plugin to warm up the site, which seems to have done the trick in terms of actually loading the login page quickly, there is a but.

    When users attempt to login, the first request is always slow (even with the initialization in place), which defeats the object of warming up the application.

    Is there any way to improve this first hit of the login request? Is there something I can do to schedule/automate an initial login request before users will come to login?

    Thanks in advance,

  • Look at the pattern auto start replaced. I'm guessing you've got other DLLs to load or Dbs to wake up?
