ASP.NET is a very popular and a powerful framework that developers across the world prefer to use for application development. This platform is regularly updated with fresh and extended features provided by Microsoft that make it all the more advanced. This has allowed developers to create highly scalable and innovative web applications at a rapid pace. However, there are several ways in which the scalability and performance of web applications can be boosted. With the right blend of advanced features and simple tricks, programmers will be able to build popular web applications.

Here are five simple ways to improve the performance and scalability of applications.

1. Configuration

Several default HTTP modules that intercept every request are positioned on the request channel. Since not all modules are required every time, it is important to ensure pipeline optimization that can help in augmenting the scalability to a significant extent.

2. Process Model Configuration

The property such as the number of threads utilized by an application or the means by which a thread is blocked is defined by process model configuration of an application. With the availability of a limited number of defaults and easy availability of dual-core in most cases, it becomes important to tweak the process model configuration to make the apps all the more scalable by utilizing more resources.

3. Elements to Contemplate Before Going Live

Before going live on the production server, it is important to tweak the web. config while using the application Membership Provider. When you add the name in Profile Provider, the profile is automatically saved along with the conclusion of the page requests. Lastly, the database is queried by the role manager with the objective of getting the user roles.

4. Avoid Using Cookies on Static Content

Many times, cookies are sent to the server due to user requests even while the page is static. Consequently, some amount of unrelated data is sent by the app to the server as part of every user request. Correspondingly, the cookies will impact the experience of the users in a negative way. However, you can use cookies to augment the performance of dynamic web pages.

5. Delivery Network

As a matter of fact, the internet serves as a means to send the browser request to the server. With a longer distance, the pace became slow. Redirecting users to their servers set up in their own location resulted in lower network latency resulting in faster data transfer. Consequently, the overall performance improved.
