There are few ASP.NET Performance books out there and even fewer good ones.

This one I like. Matt Perdick has taken an interesting approach by not just presenting technology tips and tricks that can be used to positively effect performance but rather presents the technologies in the context of a methodology one can use to identify and resolve performance problems in their own web applications.

Matt covers the tools you can use with the bottleneck pinpointing process to find and fix issues with :

  • Time to First Byte
  • Memory Usage
  • CPU Consumption
  • Caching
  • Browser
  • Proxy
  • Output
  • IIS Output
  • Data
  • Thread usage and Asynchronous Architectures
  • Reducing Long Wait Times
  • Database Access
  • Time to Last Byte
  • Compression
  • Forms Optimization
  • JavaScript and CSS
  • Images
  • Load Testing
  • It’s easy to read with ample code samples and screenshots and contains many, many of the kind of tips you would expect concerning things like ASP.NET View State, Element Ids, working with User Agent specifics, etc.

A good addition to your ASP.NET Expertise.
