Speed Up Your DotNetNuke Portals

To improve the responsiveness of your DotNetNuke application, set the Performance Setting to Heavy Caching: Step 1: Change Cache Settings

  1. Log into your poral as host or another superuser
  2. From the Host menu, click Host Settings
  3. Expand the Advanced Settings section
  4. Expand the Performance Settings section
  5. Select Heavy Caching in the drop down for Performance Setting
  6. Click Update Other Alternatives:

TrayKeepAlive from Gotchasoft

Gotchasoft (www.gotchasoft.com) offers a windows application: TrayKeepAlive, which pings your DotNetNuke application's keepalive.aspx every fifteen minutes to keep IIS from shutting down the application. This significantly improves a sites response time with infrequent visits.

Blowery Compression Module

Scott McCulloch has a very comprehensive article on installing the Blowery Compression Module here: http://www.smcculloch.net/Home/tabid/35/ctl/ArticleView/mid/363/articleId/46/EnablingHTTPCompressionforDotNetNuke.aspx

SlipStream Module

SlipStream for DotNetNuke is available on Snowcovered, features:

White space removal; autmatically remove tabs, carriage returns, extra spaces, and comments from the raw HTML sent to the user.

View state removal; remove the nasty string of characters at the bottom of every transmission and hold it on the server.

Performance Settings

DotNetNuke can cache your page information in memory, so that subsequent attempts to access a page will show the same data and not reread from the database.

To improve the responsiveness of your DotNetNuke application, set the Performance Setting to Heavy Caching:

Log into your poral as host or another superuser


From the Host menu, click Host Settings


Expand the Advanced Settings section


Expand the Other Settings section


Select Heavy Caching in the drop down for Performance Setting


Click Update
