XslCompiledTransform performance very slow on first load.

Hi There,

I'm having some issues with peformance of my application when it first loads. It seems to be taking at least 4 second to load the first time. Could someone help me with some code snippets to make it perform a little better please?

Thanks in advance

Sean
 

XPathDocument xDoc = new XPathDocument(xmlreader);
            string xslPath = Server.MapPath("test.xslt");
            XslCompiledTransform transform = new XslCompiledTransform();
            transform.Load(xslPath);
            transform.Transform(xDoc, null, Response.Output);

When you say first time, do you mean if you reload the xslt and transform again then the  time suddenly decreases? Then your load time may have more to do with included libraries; you could try reducing those.

yes that's correct. But I have read that the XslCompiledTransform class is a compiler and that on first load it compiles the stylesheet where as the XslTransform class is an interpreter but that class is deprecated in .net 2.0. So you think that limiting the namespaces I have in the page will have an effect?

I will give it a try, is there anyother ideas? I'm looking for the fastest way.
