Cache, cache, cache

One of the features in ASP.NET I like most is the support for output caching. Today I've been writing an HTTP handler in ASP.NET (see earlier post) and I've added support for caching to the application. The Microsoft Application Center Test (ACT) tool confirmed the power of this caching feature. The result: a performance gain of 800% !!!!! If you don't believe me, just wait for my next article on MSDN Belux covering this exciting technique.

Remark: In ASP.NET v2.0 "Whidbey", ASP.NET Caching will be even better with database invalidation support etc. For more about caching check out MSDN TV on (episode of Rob Howard) and the blog of Rob himself on There's an intersting story about BillG participating in a discussion about LRU caches and the implementation in .NET. | Digg It | Technorati | Blinklist | Furl | reddit | DotNetKicks
