C++ Q&A: Performance Monitoring, Managed Extensions, and Lock Toolbars

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

In the June 2004 issue of MSDN®Magazine, I described a class called ShowTime that you can use to do simple performance monitoring for your app. ShowTime uses its constructor/destructor to record the start/stop times of its existence so you can instantiate it in a block of code like so: { ShowTime st(_T("Total time is:")); // some lengthy operation } .

{ End Bracket }: Improving Managed DirectX Performance


It seems that at least twice a week, I am asked about poor performance in Managed DirectX®. This frequency is actually a big improvement over the 5-10 times a week I was asked a few years ago when the technology first came out.

C++ at Work: Persisting View State Update, Using Managed Extensions in a DLL


This month marks the 11th anniversary of my column and the inauguration of a new title: C++ At Work. We're also adding a new bimonthly column, "Pure C++," by my pal Stan Lippman, one of the great C++ Masters.

.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.

Visual Studio .NET: Managed Extensions Bring .NET CLR Support to C++


If you're a longtime C++ programmer, the thought of migrating to Visual Studio .NET might make you wary at first. However, a new feature of Visual C++, the managed extensions for C++, allows you to build apps with the .NET Framework. When you use managed C++, your code is handled by the common language runtime (CLR). This provides advanced features like garbage collection, interoperability, and more. This article explains why you'd want to use the managed extensions, how to use them, how to mix managed and unmanaged code, and how your managed code can interoperate with programs written in other languages.

Performance monitoring and baselining

Hello, While collecting the baseline data through perfmon I had come across few basic doubts in my mind which I need to clarify with your help. Suppose we have lot of RAM available and we launch an application (say a huge SSRS report with 5 million records). This takes up all the RAM and we see a steep decline in the perfmon chart. Once this report is generated , we notice a rise in the available memory. Does this means, the memory is released automatically by the report server? What is the concept behind this? Can we forcefully make SQL Server (or report server) to release the acquired memory at any point of time? Regards.

Setting up FBA in Sharepoint 2010 Foundation - Managed to lock myself out of all sites - Could reall


Sorry, I've just realised I posted this in the wrong area. If a mod/admin could move this, I would greatly appreciate it


Hello MSDN,

I have been working towards setting up FBA on my Sharepoint 2010 Foundation server, hosted by Rackspace. But while setting up .net user roles I get all manner of strange behaviour like messages about trust relationships, and have to edit the GAC. 

Now, I have managed to lock myself out of all of my sites (Including central admin), which, as you can imagine, is rather frustrating.

This isn't a mission critical server, but it would be nice to have it back online today. So if anyone knows a bit about setting up FBA, ask away and I can give any information that you require, and if necessary, I'm happy have a chat on Windows Live.


Cheers guys/

Remote monitoring and diagnostics for managed application


Please advice me...

I have a need to monitor (collect diagnostics) an application deployed, as a Windows Service, to over 40,000 (yes, forty thousand machines). Majority of the machines does not have standard tools like Visual Studio remote debugger, etc that are used for such purpose.

Also, I am not sure if WCF can be used as I am concerned about security - please enlighten me about pros and cons of having a WCF-Service-In-a-box approach. If so, what is the best binding.

Can WinRM be used to interact with a WCF NetPipe listening in the application? Any, article on this would be useful? What are the security aspects that should be focussed in this scenario.

Thanks in advance


ASP.NET Best Practices for High Performance Applications

This article lists the techniques that you can use to maximize the performance of your ASP.NET applications. It provides common issues, design guidelines, and coding tips to build optimal and robust solutions.

Top .NET Performance Problems and how to avoid them

Every time I work with one of our .NET customers to help them with managing their application performance I come across the same problems as seen with other clients before: lots of ADO.NET queries, many hidden exceptions in core or 3rd party .NET libraries, slow 3rd party components, inefficient custom code

High-Performance .NET Application Development & Architecture

It has always been a goal of project architects to plan an effective strategy from the ground up in regards to an new application. All relevant factors are taken into consideration with respect to the application, from its design and layout to a functional website infrastructure. Pre-.NET strategies and design guidelines still effective now were developed with Microsoft's DNA (Distributed interNet Application) platform. This model successfully served the purpose of architecting N(any number of)-Tier (levels) applications. In its basic sense, as in most robust, distributed applications, you'll architect 3 main layers or Tiers: presentation, business rules and data access.

How to improve the performance of ASP.NET MVC web applications

It is an in depth analysis of a Digg-like site and how it went from serving (on a test machine) 6 req/sec to 390 req/sec.

The biggest gain, 74 req/sec to 390 req/sec happened when he introduced data caching and another 25 req/sec where gained when he introduced the compilation of LINQ queries.

High Performance ASP.NET - Speeding Up ASP.NET Pages

have been writing a series of blog posts, which I have named High Performance ASP.NET Websites Made Easy! There is no rhyme or reason to the order of these posts and certainly can be read in any order:

Improving Application Performance in .Net

Application performance has always been a concern for Web Application developers. This article contains guidelines and tips for maximizing application performance in ASP.NET.

Tips to Improve Your ASP.NET Web site performance

ASP.NET has been developed with lots of features which makes developer life easy. Start from ViewState, PostBack, Server Controls , User Controls and etc. All of them can make your web development experience fun and easy, but improper use of them can cause your site performance slowdown. Most of the controls generate overhead to the client and server. Therefore in this article, I I will list out about things you can do and don't to improve your ASP.NET website performance.

10 Tips for Writing High-Performance Web Applications

Writing a Web application with ASP.NET is unbelievably easy. So easy, many developers don't take the time to structure their applications for great performance. In this article, I'm going to present 10 tips for writing high-performance Web apps. I'm not limiting my comments to ASP.NET applications because they are just one subset of Web applications. This article won't be the definitive guide for performance-tuning Web applications-an entire book could easily be devoted to that. Instead, think of this as a good place to start.

Performance Tests: Precise Run Time Measurements with System.Diagnostics.Stopwatch

Everybody who does performance optimization stumbles sooner or later over the Stopwatch class in the System.Diagnostics namespace. And everybody has noticed that the measurements of the same function on the same computer can differ 25% -30% in run time. This article shows how single threaded test programs must be designed to get an accuracy of 0.1% - 0.2% out of the Stopwatch class. With this accuracy, algorithms can be tested and compared.
