Why separate account data and user info?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

How to process data AFTER page is completely loaded for the user?


I have some logging that has to be done, which are some database update or inserts.

However this logging is of no importance to the user, so I only want to process the data/logs after the page is completed for the user.
As of now, if I process the data while the page is loading, I go from 1.4 to 2.0 speed (server side time processing of code), which is quite a bit comparing it is of no use to the user.

So I want this code only executed after that the page is complete.

I've been checking out Ajax, async pages etc, but the problem is it still gets executed before the page is rendered to the client, which means the client will have to wait longer then it is not being processed.

I've been checking out Threadpool.queueBackgroundWorker, however if I get it correct, this will still be executed before the page is shown to the user, as it has to complete before the prerender.

Then I thought about creating a new thread, and do the processing there, which would not have my page waiting to complete the data/logging.
However when I have 100 or 200 users loading pages at the same time, then that would mean I would be creating 200 threads on those loads, which I doubt will be good for performance. So if I want to solve this, I would have to create my own threadpool and only assign for example a max of 40 threads to it which can pr

Modify User in Collect Data from User Workflow


I've created a workflow with a Collect Data from User action that emails a Group when the task is created. Once the task is claimed by an individual, the Assigned To column in the task list is updated to display that person's name but once the task is completed the email variable for the action is not updated and the group is emailed instead of the person listed as Assigned To.

So the question is this: Is there a way to update the user varialbe in the workflow task once the task is completed, or would I need to build my own workflow and use the Send Email action?

What is the best way to create user account for big group of people?


I need to create individual account for a big group of people (around 200) from an Excel spreadsheet. What is the best practice? It will take too much time to create account using web form. I think there must be a way to do it. Please advice. I tried to use Stored procedures created by ASP.NET. NOT SURE whether it is a good idea.


User Account Corrupted



I'm having this problem for quite sometime now. I'm using SQL Express for my DB.

First i thought it's because of Web Server 2003 so i migrated to 2008 but it did'nt solve the problem.

Some of my users suddenly cannot login anymore not All were affected and almost same user

encounter account corruption. My solution right now is to delete their account and create a new one.

I dont know if it's how they use the web service or something wrong with the browser.

My plan right now is to create a new "ASPNETDB" if i cant find any solution.

Hope some can asist me if in case you have already encountered this. Also thought that maybe

because i'm using SQL Express MS intended to do this to force me to buy licensed version.

BTW, normally i only have 20 users accessing Web at the same time.
