MVC Performance in IIS – Part II

Last 2 weeks, I run MVC training kit to IIS 7.5 and was trying to figure out the baseline for the performance tuning for my project. I tested 3 Scenarios,


S1) Hosting MVC 1.0 Training Kit in Application under Default Website
S2) Hosting MVC 1.0 Training Kit in New Website with port 8081
S3) Hosting my company’s MVC Project in New Website with port 8082


And their result of max throughput on Default Page is around,


Result 1 Screen Shot
R1 Result Screen Shot

Result 2 Screen shot
R2 Result Screen Shot


R1) ~200/sec
R2) ~2980/sec
R3) ~410/sec


This time, I tested in more scenarios,


S4) Moving MVC 1.0 Training Kit to root of Default Website
S5) Hosting MVC 1.0 Training Kit in Application under New Website with port 8081
S6) Hosting my company’s MVC Project in Root of Default Website


And their result now are,


Result 4 Screen shot
R4 Result Screen Shot

Result 5 Screen Shot
R5 Result Screen Shot

Result 6 Screen shot
R6 Result Screen Shot


R4) ~225/sec
R5) ~2650/sec
R6) ~170/sec


OK, let me group the result in a table and so we could view all results more clear.


  In Root In Application
MVC 1.0 Kit in Default Website ~225/sec ~200/sec
MVC 1.0 Kit in New Website with port 8081 ~2980/sec ~2650/sec
Company MVC Project in Default Website n/a ~170/sec
Company MVC Project in New Website with port 8082 ~410/sec n/a


Now the results are showing that
1) The performance will be gained about 10% if you move the MVC project from Application under website into root of website.
2) The performance will be gained in a range from 240% – 1325%  if you move the MVC project from Default Webste to New Website.
