strange information from asp.net trace / getting performance information using WebRequest and StreamReader


i have asp.net vb.net wep application.
i try to investigate performance issue.
so first i built a vb.net windows application that makes http requests to my pages and show me the time taken to receive the page and it's size.
the windows app uses a WebRequest and StreamReader to receive the http request.
the strange information is for a page that took to receive about 218 ms
i enabled the trace in the web.config of my pages, and trace logged and watched through trace.axd.
when i examine the trace information i have this table of information:
Trace Information
Category Message From First(s) From Last(s)
aspx.page Begin Init
aspx.page End Init 0.000297 0.000297
aspx.page Begin PreRender 0.000911 0.000615
aspx.page End PreRender 0.153830 0.152919
aspx.page Begin SaveViewState 0.171056 0.017225
aspx.page End SaveViewState 0.171581 0.000526
aspx.page Begin Render 0.171640 0.000059
aspx.page End Render 2.629846 2.458206
how can it be that the end render took 2.4 seconds while the client got the page in 218ms?

what is the problem here.
i will recheck my information with a third party tool.
the 218ms if for a webRequest.GetR esponse to return.
i guess is that the function returns after the asynchronous request returns.
so what might be the cause to the time differencets?

i will point that extra time is occur for the reader.ReadToEn d() function.
if the response is chunked (http transfer-encoding:chunke d) or if the response if flushed several time, should this cause the reader.ReadToEn d to perform extra time, isn't the data already there? might the webRequest.GetR esponse returned before all the request was received?

TIA, z.

Hi guys, I have the following code that retrieves a webpage. My problem is getting it to use the right encoding. I've tested it against a danish page, but it won't show the danish characters. When I set it to sniff the encoding (using sr = New System.IO.StreamReader(strm, True) ) it sets it to UTF8, but when I browse the page using MSIE with auto-selection of encoding, it uses Western European (and displays the danish chars correctly).

Hello all, I'm experiencing some, imo, strange behavior with the StreamReader object I am using in the code below.

I know, I could use the WebClient and it would be easier, but I don't have the flexibility I want with it. This code appears to work exactly the way I want unless the user cancels the the background operation. In that...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows.
