Here’s another tip to optimize websites developed in ASP.NET: since Framework 2.0, Microsoft offers to configure a Deployment tag to include in Machine.config file.
<configuration> <system.web> <deployment retail="true"/> </system.web> </configuration>
This setting has two effects:
- Restore the optimal performance of ASP. NET (Compilation, AXD cache resources, memory management, timeouts pages) that were reduced by the debug mode.
- And disable debugging, the ASP.NET trace and error messages to complete ASP.NET (whatever settings in Web.config).
