How to save ASP output into HTML file

Hi,
I have a complex ASP page, It will take a log time to load. How I save the ASP output into HTML file, So next time we first chech if the html file exists, if it exists, it will directly load html file, no need to go to ASP, otherwith we will load ASP page. Could you provide some sample codes? Thank you

If you have access to it you can save files using the fileSystemObject. The following code will create a file and write one line to it.

dim objFS, MyFile
set objFS = server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set MyFile = objFS.CreateTextFile( Server.MapPath("/files/testfile.htm"), true)
MyFile.WriteLine("This is a test.")
MyFile.Close
set MyFile = nothing
set objFS = nothing

You probably want to double check your ASP and data access methods for bottlenecks. But if you MUST write an HTML file, this piece of code should work fine. On your current ASP, substitute "Response.Write" for "WriteOut"

Dim oFSO
Set oFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

Dim sFileName       :sFileName = "Sample.html"
Dim sPhysicalFile   :sFilePhysicalFile = "C:\Inetpub\root\test\" & sFileName
Dim sURL            :sURL = "http://www.MyLocalServer.com/Test/" & sFileName

Dim oFile

'Check if saved HTML exists or not
'sForceCreate is a variable that, when set to "y" forces the code
'to update the saved HTML file. This can be fetched from the
'querystring or whatever.
Dim sForceCreate
sForceCreate = Request("ForceCreate")
If oFSO.FileExists(sPhysicalFile) And sForceCreate <> "y" Then
    Set oFile = oFSO.GetFile(sPhysicalFile)
    'Also, we can check if the file is older than 10 days
    'If it is, recreate the file
    If DateDiff("y",oFile.DateCreated,Now()) < 10 Then
        Set oFile = Nothing
        Set oFSO = Nothing
        Response.Redirect sURL
    End If    
End If

'Create a text file
'True indicates that we can overwrite an existing file
Set oFile = oFSO.CreateTextFile(sPhysicalFile, True)

Sub WriteOut(sString)
    'Will take the sString and WriteOut it and Write it to a file.
    Response.Write sString
    oFile.WriteLine sString
End Sub

'YOUR CURRENT ASP WOULD GO HERE

oFile.Close
Set oFile = Nothing
Set oFSO = Nothing

The really SIMPLEST way is to install either Apache or Squid in front of the IIS server in proxy cache mode.

You can set up the caching not only to cache the static pages returned from IIS (thus reduce the load there) but also dynamicaly generated pages. You can even discard these pages at regular intervals (let's say they're stock quotes or the like which need to be recalculated every hour). Considering that the software is free it'll cost you just the machine (I think you should run it on a separate machine for roduction purposes) which is a damn sight cheaper than rewriting the software. And remember "Never touch a running system".
