.NET Code Tuning: Make Your Apps Fly with the New Enterprise Performance Tool

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Because the common language runtime (CLR) is a black box, it's pretty hard to divine what's going on when you want to track down performance problems. Microsoft will be delivering a brand new profiler, the Enterprise Performance Tool (EPT), as part of Visual Studio 2005 Team Developer Edition that's ideal for use on a production system because it offers some very lightweight means of collecting performance data. Here John Robbins takes you on a tour.

Performance tuning tips for database developers

Performance tuning is not easy and there aren't any silver bullets, but you can go a surprisingly long way with a few basic guidelines.

In theory, performance tuning is done by a DBA. But in practice, the DBA is not going to have time to scrutinize every change made to a stored procedure. Learning to do basic tuning might save you from reworking code late in the game.

Below is my list of the top 15 things I believe developers should do as a matter of course to tune performance when coding. These are the low hanging fruit of SQL Server performance - they are easy to do and often have a substantial impact. Doing these won't guarantee lightening fast performance, but it won't be slow either.

Performance Tuning on DirectShow Camera Application

Windows CE 6.0 supports DirectShow® components to develop a rich camera application. A minimum requirement of the camera application is to show preview, capturing the still images which is stored as a compressed file (JPG) format, capturing/multiplexing the video with or without audio i.e. stored as a compressed file (WMV) format.

Windows CE 6.0 provides sample applications for showing preview, capturing still and video using DirectShow® components. However these sample applications doesn't cover all the aspects to develop a commercial application. A commercial camera application at least satisfies the following performance criteria.

Make sure that the class defined in this code file matches the 'inherits' attribute, and that it e


Here is the page directive for the page that throws the error:

@ Page language="c#" Inherits="University.AspNet.Index" CodeFile="Index.aspx.cs" %>

The code behind file Index.aspx.cs starts like this:

using University.Framework.UI;

namespace University.AspNet

public partial class Index : University.Framework.UI.HomePage

The code behind is extending this HomePage class, which is in turn an extenstion of another class University.Framework.UI.Page, which extends the System.Web.UI.Page class.
