Using .NET HttpClient to capture partial Responses

Recently I needed to create a high volume monitoring application that retrieves a huge number of HTTP requests, and I need to minimize the amount of data pulled from these requests. In this post I describe some of the limitations in actually pulling an exact amount of data from an HTTP and Tcp/IP connection in .NET.

Getting a 'base' Domain from a Domain

I was surprised to see that there wasn't some way in .Net to retrieve the base domain name from a sub-domain. For example, I want www.west-wind.com, and store.west-wind.com to return me just the base url. Easy enough but there are a couple small issues to check for especially when dealing with string based domain names.

WebRequest and SSL Connection Problems

Ever run into a problem with WebRequest or a Web Service Proxy on an SSL request where the first request works just fine but the second one fails? Run again and it works again and then fails again? It's a common problem that occurs when the Keep-Alives aren't handled the way the client requests on the server.
