Performance optimization in ASP.NET websites

ASP.NET optimization is essential to assess the healthiness of every component of your website. For instance, a load test can reveal lot of information about the performance of your website or web application. The two crucial KPIs are the transaction response time (under peak time) and the maximum transaction throughput per second. These two factors play a significant role in performance testing as they determine how your application is performing during peak load time.

If your application or website does not pass the test then there is a problem. To resolve this issue, you would have to use the old code copy profiler and optimize the code.

Your ASP.NET specialist can use other metrics such as network, platform and system to assess whether your website is up to par with your business goals or not.
