    Currently working on a large Intranet project where need to setup separate generic content, news and events providers for each business division within the company. This is because each business division needs it's own permissions, categories, metadata fields and tags for these module. There are 6 business divisions.

    We are also creating extra generic content provders for things like Staff Profiles etc. and using the awesome content view to sort out the displaying of this information.

    My question is will the number of providers begin to affect the performance of the application? How many providers can you add do you think before the appilcation starts to choke?

    Hello Seth,

    The number of providers may affect the startup time of the application because of initialization but you should not see any performance decline after that. You may also experience slight memory increasing.

    I’ve seen a Sitefinity application that was using about 60 Generic Content providers, some of them connected to different databases, and it was working just fine.  

    Please let me know if you encounter any problems or performance issues.

    Best wishes,
