“Warming up” an IIS 8.5 WebSite

Fellow Devs ,

I’m having issues post-deployment to an IIS 8.5 application. Here’s the situation:

Code is deployed, the app pool recycles (which is expected), and then I make some PowerShell calls to initialize some connections and load in the application’s DLLs. Afterwards, the web application is then allowed to take production traffic.

The issue at hand is that after production traffic is allowed, the website is sluggish for another 3 or 4 minutes. It all seems to be related to IIS not being “warmed up”. I’ve determined that the load of traffic is not an issue. Anyone have any solutions? I’ve tried adding more PowerShell calls, along with adding the “PreLoad = true” to the WebSite.

Thanks in advance!
