The aspnet_compiler is slow to precompile web pages. We have a high end build server and the aspnet_compiler.exe runs and hardly uses in CPU or RAM.
Is there anything that can be done to speed up precompilation as it accounts for 50% of our total build time.407 votes
Please add the ability to specify conditional compilation constants easily in the web.config for a file system based web site. A simple declaration in the <system.web><compilation> directive would be ideal.
You can work around with <system.codedom><compilers> directives, but many shared hosting environments generally do not let you install your own compiler, so this should be something that you can specify without requiring these directives.3 votes
