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 http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa751883.aspx, 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.
