OK so that being said can anyone help me attempt to optimize IIS express so requests only take twice as long as IIS. Such as disabling the extra traces in the command window. Anyone??
I am a firm believer in embedded web servers for small self-hosted sites and I produce such a product myself - MyCourts.
IIS Express will replace Abyss in my case for a number of reasons however the poor performance of IIS Express compared to Abyss is not really a limiting factor,
The users of the service will be happy with the IIS Express performance level as is. However, us perfectionists probably won't be.
In time, IIS Express will incorporate the features mentioned in this thread however given Microsoft's past track record I wouldn't hold my breath.
In all fairness though, IIS Express is looking good and Microsoft should be given credit for opening up it's products for the small business sector. You can't get better than 'FREE' and if performance is really a limiting factor for you then I guess you
really should be looking to the full version to meet your needs.
