"Please Wait" - Under Load
Posted on 2004-09-13
Ok I realize that the title is a bit cryptic so let me explain.
I have an C# web application that generates a few pages on the fly. Basically the ASPX file is empty and I generate everything using Response.Write()
I am now doing stress tests on my server and ak experiencing a problem.
When the server is under stress and I load a page in the app ... the page opens up but except for the title bar everything is just a blank white page ( it's busy loading) ... as this is not very appealing and the user might think that the app has hung I would like to put a "please wait" on the page while the main stuff is loading ... the main data loads from oracle and then writes to the page.
I have tried adding a 'Please wait" to the ASPX page to let it display before the page is regenerated, I have also added a Response.Write("Please Wait");Response.End(); to the Page_Load ... so it shoows it while the real data loads ...
in both cases there is no joy. The page still stays white for a few seconds and once it's done it just displays my data (I'm guessing that my "Please wait" flashes just before my data is displayed) ...
Can anybody help here
