WSE / DIME File Transfer Performance

I'm working on an file transfer gateway using WSE with DIME for file
attachments. Our goal is to replace our direct file repository access (via
windows network folder sharre) with the Web Service gateway for security
purposes.

As it stands now, all workstations have direct read-write access to the file
repository share. The Web Service gateway will secure this for us. While the
web service gateway is more secure, it doesn't perform anywhere near up to
the performance of a direct file copy. I'm working with a 27 MB file in my
test environment; the client and the web service are on the same
workstation.

Using direct file access, I can copy this 27 MB file in under 2 seconds.
Using the web service, it take between 5 and 6 seconds to transfer the same
file. We understand that we might have to trade a bit of speed for the
increased security, however a 400% increase is really more of a hit than
we'd been anticipating. Is there any way that I can tune performance to
optimize WSE / DIME for large file attachments?

Thanks for your help!

Hi Joseph,

Do a Google search on "084SharpZipLib". Check out
084SharpZipLib_SourceSamples.zip and the DIME example.

Hi Jim,

What does this do, Zips the file before sending it across the wire? Most of
our files are compressed to begin with, so this wouldn't buy us anything in
most cases.

Thanks,
