(asp.net) un-managed code

I'm working on a asp.net app that's eCommerece. I downloaded a dotnet profiler and ran the app.

The bottleneck shows at an ASHX page and there's a routine in there. It calls database stuff.

But my question is, howcome this is unmanaged code and is unmanaged code bad? ** the profler shows this functon as unmanaged**

This is the code below:


using System;

using System.Web;

using System.Web.UI;

 

using System.Diagnostics;

 

 

using DX.Catalog;

 

 

    public class CategoryUrl : IHttpHandler, System.Web.SessionState.IRequiresSessionState

    {

        public void ProcessRequest(HttpContext context)

        {

            

 

            string destinationPage = "~/ListProdcuts.aspx";

 

   

 

            if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(context.Request.QueryString["Tail"]))

            {

                Category category = Category.GetById(new Guid(context.Request.QueryString["CategoryId"]), true);

                string landingPage = "~/Categs/" + category.TreePath.Replace("/", ".") + ".aspx";

 

                if (System.IO.File.Exists(context.Server.MapPath(landingPage)))

                {

                    destinationPage = landingPage;

                }

            }

 

            context.RewritePath(destinationPage, context.Request.PathInfo, context.Request.Url.Query.TrimStart('?'), false);

 

            IHttpHandler page = PageParser.GetCompiledPageInstance(destinationPage, context.Server.MapPath(destinationPage), context);

            page.ProcessRequest(context);

        }

 

        public bool IsReuse

        {

            get

            {

                return true;

            }

        }

    }

Any .Net code you write is managed code, however, you can make calls to unmanaged code.  My guess is some of these methods which you haven't posted more detail on make calls to unmanaged methods, specifically the category object.

ah, so I need to trace that category object? so this ASHX itself is managed but it calls other methods that are unmanaged...

unmanaged code is bad for performance?

Unmanaged code is not bad, it just doesn't run under the .Net CLR (aka. Virtual Machine).  Unmanaged code talks directly to the computers processor, while .Net (managed) code talks to the CLR, which talks to the computer's processor.  Technically, unmanaged code has the potential to run more efficiently than .Net code since there isn't this intermediate step :-)

thanks...makes sense. I will need to look at this bottleneck. Have you used MyGeneration database wrapper...they use it a lot in this app..maybe that's an issue...but good to know I can rule some things out.

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

You're right , something's going on with that Category object.

Let me ask you this and then I will close question.

The profiler shows that that object consumes 212,206 byes of memory. Total byte allocated for this object is 244,392 bytes That's not good, is it? dont think it is ..

Probably out of my expertise as far as a solid answer, but I do know a program can request a large amount of memory to be reserved for it's execution, memory it may never use.  This might help explain your memory discrepancy.

I really only remember reading this once when I looked up virtual memory, wondering why it's even needed these days.  Seems windows is smart and offloads this reserved memory to a hard-disk until it's actually used in the program.
