.NET CLR Profiling Services: Track Your Managed Components to Boost Application Performance


The Microsoft .NET platform provides you with a rich set of services for building profilers and application monitors for applications targeting the Common Language Runtime (CLR). These services expose runtime events that occur during the execution of a .NET application. They can be used to obtain information about managed code being executed under the runtime. This article describes the .NET CLR Profiling Services and shows how to use the services to build a simple profiler that will provide hot spot information for any .NET application. The sample profiler can easily be modified to suit other profiling and monitoring needs.

An Excel Services Application setting does not allow the requested operation to be performed.

I'm facing a problem with Excel services and JSOM. On the page load, I'm registering a JSOM with a Visio webaccess webpart.

Using Freeware SharePoint Foundation 2010 with BLOB extender for large scale deployment project.

Hi Everyone, If I'd like to deploy SharePoint 2010 Foundation with Express DB (no SQL Server) what's the limitation ? and suppose i have implemented BLOB extender from freeware 3rd partyhttp://www.avepoint.com/sharepoint-storage-extender-docave/ does that means i can deploy more than 4 GB of data and it should perform faster since the SQL Express is not loaded with BLOB (document binaries). Can anyone clarify this matter please ? Thanks. /* Infrastructure Support Engineer */

Use of having multiple Services for single silverlight application

Hi My project have 4 modules, I have decided to use single service with multiple interface (1 interface for 1 module, i.e totally 4 interfaces) and multiple partial class ( 4 partial class). Partial classes use this interface. But I have another thought of using multiple service ( 4 services, i.e for each module one service class (.svc)). Please let me know, which approach is right? 

WCF Membership Authentication and Winform Client Application Services

I am needing more validation of what I am doing versus solving a problem. I have a winforms application that uses Client Application Services to validate a user against a customer membership provider all over SSL.  This works fine.  My winforms application validates correctly. The winforms application uses WCF to call services that are installed on the same IIS server that is providing the membership services for the Client Application Services.  The WCF services use wsHTTP binding, transport security, username credentials, and validate against the same membership provider as the Client Application Services. It appears that although the service and Client Application Services are at the same URL, they do not share credentials between them.  Ideally, once I log into Client Application Services, any calls to a WCF service at that location would be automatically authenticated.  However, this is not true.  I have to pass the username and password into the credentials for the WCF service.  This works as expected where the username and password are validated prior to allowing a service call.  On subsequent services calls, it does not validate again since it has established the secure channel. So, does this sound like the best approach?  Is there a way to pass credentials from the Client Application Services to WCF automatically?  I

Client Application Services - Role service cache time out bug

Hi All, For people using Client Application Services with WPF, be aware of this bug. You can configure the "cache time out" for roles to be fetched again from the service. (In the visual studio dialog, Properties -> Services -> Advanced) This means the roles are cached on the client (in a file). If the application asks for roles again, they are not fetched again for "cache time out" time. When you set this value, it goes into your App.config, transformed into seconds. So if you choose 1 minute, the App.config has: cacheTimeout="60".   However, when using the ClientRoleProvider (for instance to do something like clientRoleProvider.GetRolesForUser("SomeUser")), this cacheTimeOut is interpreted in Minutes, not seconds! To prove my point, check ClientRoleProvider.Initialize method:   string temp = config["cacheTimeout"]; if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(temp)) _CacheTimeout = int.Parse(temp, CultureInfo.InvariantCulture);   Later on, in ClientRoleProvider.GetRolesFromDBUser (what's in a name?), you see: _CacheExpiryDate = cd.RolesCachedDateUtc.AddMinutes(_CacheTimeout);   Testing also shows this behavior. So be aware, and always put the value in minutes in your App.Config!   Regards, Koen

Client Application Services and Man-in-the-Middle

Backgorund: I am using Client Application Services with a WPF client. The client talks to a Forms authenticated web site. I am using the Forms token to protect web services that the client uses to get information from the web site. I am protecting the web services with certificates, both server and client. Issue: All the web services are protected against man-in-the-middle attacks. The test I am using is to load Fiddler on the client and allow it to install certificates. The presence of fiddler as man-in-the-middle is detected by all the web services but not by the validation request of Client Application Services. I am able to read the user name and password from that message using Fiddler. How can I get client application services to use the certificates?

"Fields and Content Types for the Windows SharePoint Services Application Templates"


Installation of Server Admin "Fabulous 40" Templates -

I saw a new feature appear after the templates were installed by our farm administrator. I didn't see anything in the documentation about it, but it seems like I should activate it.

Should I activate the "Fields and Content Types for the Windows SharePoint Services Application Templates" feature?

Are there any drawbacks?

Any other words of wisdom?


How to scale from Single Farm Services to Enterprise Farm Services


I have a question onHow to scale from Single Farm Services to Enterprise Farm Services. i.e

Today , if i have a Farm with All Services like Managed metadata and Search running .. . but  tommorow  client introduce 2 new farms then there are 2 options w.r.t to service sharing

a) either do cross farms sharing of services ... which i understand how it will happen

b) or because of XYZ reasons , go for Enterprise Service Farms which hosts your manage metadata service / Earch for all your farms .... 

So, question is in this case how one will move existing managed metedata / Search service to Enterprise Service Farm ?
