I am having a very worrisome issue with SiteFinity startup times. I've seen several posts about how long it takes to open a page the first time, but none of them have a solution that works for me. Each page takes 7-10 minutes to load the first time I open it. The "Pages" section of the control panel takes 15 minutes. If I were to go from the login page to the dashboard, to "settings" under administration, that would take be approximately a half hour.
I am developing with Visual Studio 2010 and switching between the Cassini server and an IIS express instance. Both of them have roughly the same performance. My laptop is running Windows 7 and has 8 cores and 8 Gigs of ram. I use MS SQL Server express as my development database.
I have noticed that every time I make a request to the SiteFinity website, csc.exe pegs out a CPU core for most of the waiting time. I've read online about people with slow startup times due to ASP.NET compilation, but only in a matter of seconds, not minutes.
Now this problem didn't always happen, but it started this past week. The only thing I tried to do differently was add a custom user control to the SiteFinity toolbox. However, I've created new projects, updated from 4.2 to 5.1, used different databases, and I still get these long startup times.
Does anyone know what my issue is? I need help!
