When you make a call from a remote .NET AppDomain to a Microsoft .NET component that is configured in COM+, you may experience performance slowdown in the AppDomain that initiated the call. This problem occurs only when you invoke methods on a ServicedComponent that is hosted by a COM+ server application.
When a managed application dispatches method calls to a ServicedComponent that is hosted in a COM+ server application, the .NET Framework must marshal method parameters. To improve performance, the internal marshaling layer uses a cached MemoryStream object to marshal and unmarshal the parameters. However, the marshaler always uses the full MemoryStream buffer for every call, instead of passing only the minimum required data.
Because the marshaled stream can become larger than necessary, applications that use large parameters at one time may experience performance degradation for calls that use small parameters later.
