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. Take a look at the examples page for some performance statistics.

Performance was a major consideration during the development of DynamicPDF Merger for .NET. The techniques used to parse and manage the imported data are extremely fast and well designed. Only the data required in the output document is parsed and commonly used documents or pages can be stored as static variable to eliminate repeated parsing of the same data. This results in extremely fast performance. Take a look at the examples page for some performance statistics.

DynamicPDF ReportWriter for .NET builds PDF reports using the highly reliable and efficient DynamicPDF Generator for .NET. Report Elements are output to PDF using its object model and DPLX files can be cached and shared in a multi-threaded environment. DynamicPDF ReportWriter for .NET has been designed to excel in high load environments where high performance and reliability are key. Take a look at the examples page for some performance statistics.

DynamicPDF Suite supports .NET Frameworks 2.0, 3.5 & 4.x.

The control is working incredibly. By far the most robust and easy to use suite I have used so far, I am actually getting rid of 2 other report writers to use this. Nice work.
