Performance

DynamicPDF Generator for .NET was designed with perfomance in mind. PDF documents are generated by default using a single pass architecture allowing the PDF output to be sent to the output stream as the document is being created. This minimizes the amount of data stored in RAM as the document is created and frees up resources as quickly as possible during the output process. The architecture is similar to the way ASP.NET renders controls and has proven to be highly efficient.

The object model is multithread safe. Multiple threads can generate PDF documents at the same time. Page Elements, Fonts, Images and other resources can be shared between threads without interfering with each other.

DynamicPDF Generator for .NET creates PDF documents from scratch and does not require the resources of a printer driver. Everything needed to create PDF documents is included in the product allowing the fastest possible execution of 100% managed and safe code. There are no external dependencies and the only thing required to use the product is one of the supported .NET Frameworks. Currently this product supports .NET Frameworks 2.0, 3.5, 4.0 & 4.5.
