.NET 3.5 SP1 - Penetration Stats

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 09, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
Hi All,I'm very interested in finding out stats related to the penetration of .NET 3.5 SP1 into the general XP and Vista user base.While .NET 3.5 SP1 is only a recommended update and not a mandatory update through Windows Update, I would assume that most users select the recommended update option by default.If I could get some rough percentages such as  - 60% of XP users have .NET 3.5 SP1 , and 75% of Windows Vista have .NET 3.5 SP1.Is this information available anywhere? Would be very helpful, as it is needed to gauge how many users may need to upgrade to .NET 3.5 SP1 for a particular app. Appreciate any assistance.

Hi Is there a way in Sql server to generate Table fragmentation using features such as  - sys.dm_db_index_physical_stats. It looks to like this is for Indexes on some preliminary lookup.   Thx - Al

Sharepoing 2007 Stats


Hi there,

Is there a way on Sharepoint 2007 to track stats. I have been asked to see how many hits a certain page gets. Can this be done on individual pages or sigle documents.

Thank you.


Penetration Testing


What software tools does anyone recommend for penetration testing of WCF-based web services? I'm aware of the free project WebInject (webinject.org) and SOAPSonar (crosschecknet.com). Any experiences would be appreciated.

SQLIO stats on Hyper-V host


I've been using sqlio.exe to benchmark a new ssd drive and I get much higher results running it in a Hyper-V VM compared to the physical host, much higher.

For example, on the raw host I get 2000 IOPS, on the VM I get 5000 etc.

When I compare the physical disk stats in perfmon when the test is running it appears that the VM is writing at a rate of about 250MB/sec, while the host is only writing about 60MB/sec.

I'm using a 20GB datafile in the test to ensure nothing gets cached in memory etc and I know its writing to disk based on the host's perfmon counters.


Any ideas why I'm getting artificially high results in the VM?


How do I get very detailed usage stats from MOSS?


Hi People,


So I've just been asked to provide very detailed usage stats on a large MOSS install. Questions like:

How many distinct users have accessed the system in the last 90 days? What were their usernames? Which pages did they go to 1st - in which sites? What did they do on those sites?

Full user profiling across all sites and all site collections on the whole farm!

And no there is no budget to buy any software that does this out of the box.

So how do you do it?

Yes I know there is usage processing and logging and IIS Logs and the log parser etc etc...But does anyone have any specific answers to how to go about answering those questions above.

And yes I know about the reports in SharePoint Designer but I do not want to open each and every site up in that on the farm as there are close to 1000 sites! it'll take for ever.

I need a free tool - or guidance on use of existing tools - or info on developing a tool - that can iterate thru all sites in a site collection to get those questions mentioned above.

If you have read this far - thanks - it's a long post!

If you answer - thanks a million!















Auto update stats for large database



We have a large database (90 GB) which is very slow during busy hours. Auto update and auto create stats are enabled for this database. Should disabling it and running update statistics manually twice weekly would help improving the performance? I can't use profiler to ckeck the impacts of auto operations.
