Slow Start-Up

Aug 10, 2009 at 3:14 PM

It's taking 30-40 seconds to send my first request to the IVC web service.  Subsequent requests take only 2-3 seconds.  I've trimmed down the Acord spec to only what's needed, which still a huge amount.  I've also tried to generate the XmlSerialization helper as indicated in this article, but to no avail.  I'm not sure it has to do with Serialization, but I'm guessing that is the culprit.

Is anyone else experiencing extremely slow performance like this?  I can't be the only one.

Seeing this too, in unit tests and production app. My guess is that it takes this long to JIT over seven MB of C# code. I wonder if the delay goes away if I build a strongly named assembly and put it in GAC.
