Hosting models comparison of ASP.NET Core application


Abstract

The article presents hosting models comparison of ASP.NET Core application. Available hosting models were described and compared and then performance comparison was carried out. For each model the same test scenarios were executed and their performance was determined by number of requests per second which host was able to process. The results obtained show that standard model is the least efficient one and using one of the other configurations, for example, IIS with Kestrel (in-process), Kestrel or HTTP.sys might provide even several times better performance compared to standard model.
