Is the thread pool tuned appropriately?
Proper tuning of the CLR thread pool tuned improves performance significantly. Before deploying your application, ensure that the thread pool has been tuned for your application.
Is the memory limit configured appropriately?
Configuring the ASP.NET memory limit ensures optimal ASP.NET cache performance and server stability. In IIS 5.0 or when you use the ASP.NET process model under IIS 6.0, configure the memory limit in Machine.config. With IIS 6.0, you configure the memory limit by using the IIS MMC snap-in.
Have you removed unnecessary HttpModules?
Including HttpModules that you do not need adds extra overhead to ASP.NET request processing. Check that you have removed or commented out unused HttpModules in Machine.config.
