How Web Stimulus works

Web Stimulus is a premium ASP.NET performance solution that speedups web browsers with acceleration plug-in. The plug-in seamlessly communicates with the ASP.NET server to give you better performance than in any server-only solution.

Web Stimulus has two levels of acceleration that work together for improved speed and scalability of your web application.

Front-End Acceleration + Back-End Acceration = Speed

What Front-End Acceleration Does:

Optimizes Front-end performance for the entire web application.

  • Reduces HTTP roundtrips.

    Removes excessive chatter from web traffic to improve bandwidth utilization and speedup page loads. more
  • Reduces redundant downloads.

    Consolidates conditional requests of resources on subsequent web page visits and reduces user wait time. more
  • Compresses HTTP responses.

    Text-based files such as HTML, JavaScript, and CSS files are compressed and minified to reduce traffic and load times.
  • Compresses HTTP requests.

    Gzips requests for faster delivery.  more
  • Consolidates cached objects.

    Reduces browser cache reads for faster rendering of rich pages. more

How To Enable Front-End Acceleration:

Enable Front-End Acceleration on any ASP.NET website in just three clicks (see Learn Front-End Acceleration). All pages will be accelerated instantly. Users will be asked to allow a one-time install of an Internet Explorer of Firefox plug-in to see the performance boost.

What Back-End Acceleration Does:

Optimizes Back-end performance page-by-page.

  • Reduces ASP.NET traffic.

    Reduces ASP.NET traffic by 1-2 orders of magnitude and greatly improves performance of large dynamic pages. more
  • Caches dynamic pages on client.

    Caches aspx pages on the client. Cached content is loaded into the browser instantly without using any bandwidth or server resources. more
  • Offloads the server.

    Shifts execution of ASP.NET code from the server to the client and increases server scalability. more
  • Keeps Viewstate out of your traffic.

    Excludes ViewState from the download traffic without compromising statefulness of the controls.
  • Processes some ASPX page requests locally.

    Client-side processing of HTTP requests gives the user a desktop-like response from your ASP.NET pages. more

How To Configure Back-End Acceleration:

Configure Back-End Acceleration as needed on a page-by-page basis. Do it yourself or let us help. We will help you configure Back-End Acceleration on one web page for free. Learn about Initial Setup Assistance or find out more about the benefits of Back-End Acceleration.
