Why so slow?

Sep 30, 2011 at 11:26 PM


Nice product, just what I'm looking for and I'm sure it's going to be useful to many others, but why is it sooo slow? It's taking several seconds to complete on a EC2 micro instance, where the IIS SMTP server is taking a fraction of a second, as is a direct .NET call to the AWS API. What's it doing!?

Thanks, T.

Hi thoqbk,

Thank You for your feedback, I am glad you have found this project useful.

As far as the speed it concerned, I am aware that it is quite slow and I think this is mostly due to the service listening and waiting for commands.

I have been meaning to optimize the speed of the application but have been extremely busy lately. However, I do plan to get the next version up on CodePlex in the next short while.

If you would like to take a look at the latest source code, I will upload it to the CodePlex.

Best Regards,
