Web API - Docker - Performance Improvement ??

Brass Contributor

Hi All,


We have an webapi in which one of the endpoint is taking more than 10 minutes to execute. Once this endpoint action completed successfully then next step need to be triggered.


This webapi is hosted in azure app service and due to ARR limitation of 4  minutes, step 1 endpoint is not getting completed to carry on other steps. 


I thought to containarize this api project and thought to run on azure container linux environment. But VS 2017 RC, is failing to publish this solution to azure.


My question is "Is there any improvement in execution time for webapi, if it is running as container?"


Advance Thanks!!

Is it running in Cloud Services or App Service? Do you have the application setting to "always on"?

Hi Dave.....I have hosted this web api on cloud services.
