CLR Inside Out : The Performance Benefits of NGen.

Why Use NGen?

NGen typically improves the warm startup time of applications, and sometimes the cold startup time as well. Cold startup time refers to the time taken to start an application soon after a machine reboot, such that the application is being launched for the first time after that reboot. Warm startup time, on the other hand, is the time taken to start the application given that it was launched in the recent past (and there were no reboots in between).
