How to avoid common .Net DLLs getting stored locally in Temporary ASP.Net files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    I've a web application which has a reference to some DLLs (Size is ~270 MB). When i deploy the application in the IIS server for 20 different clients, the DLLs are being copied to 20 times in Temporary ASP.Net location (i.e) one set for each IIS website. 

    I anticipate more clients shortly and eventually the Temporary ASP.Net storage would also get increase by copying the DLL for each instance. Is there a way to avoid this multiple copies of the same DLLs in Temporary ASP.Net file ?

    Would it solve the problem if i move those DLLs to GAC ?

    My intentions is to avoid caching of common DLLs in the Temporary ASP.Net files for each IIS website instance.

    Thanks, Anbu.
