myServer Update 10/24/2016

Mon Oct 24, 2016 9:55 pm

Today's release of myServer has a significant update. The internal Web Server has been rewritten and its code migrated from .Net 4.0 methodology to the latest .NET 4.5 methods. This means we have moved away from a threading model to an asynchronous tasks model. The entire change is transparent to the end user or any of the web apps. However, we want to be notified if you see any strange errors or instabilities while using your apps.

Additionally, historically myServer ran two separate Web Servers. With this release there is now only one web server listening on two ports. Overall, the web server runs more efficiently and consumes less Windows resources.

Our observation (as well as some initial testers) is that this webserver update makes myserver another ~20% faster in rendering webpages.
Quite a bit faster than MLServer and any other home automation system I have used.

enjoy!

I agree that it is noticeably faster. It also helps each page to load more completely, all at once. Nice work and thank you!

I also noticed a big difference in speed. The 2 ports you're referring to are the default 80 and 6246?

Yes, those 2 ports are both being controlled by one web server. The new .NET 4.5 asynchronous Tasks are vastly more efficient than the old threading model.
