Where is System.Threading.Parallel?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework

Where does one find the System.Threading.Parallel library? It is supposedly part of the BCL, according to ECMA 335, but Google only turned up three references to it, with one of them in the standard itself.

For those of you unfamiliar with this library, it is supposed to make parallel computing easier, by providing classes such as ParallelFor, ParallelWhile, and ParallelForEach.

System.Threading AND email


Hi guys,

I really need some help (and also some code example), in how to use System.Threading to send emails.

The issue is:

a) I have a function that sends emails;

b) But I don't want to keep the customers waiting for the email being sent;

c) so, I figure it out that the System.Threading is the best way to do that; But I don't know how exactly I cant use it.

PLEASE, i'm VB - not C# - developer, and I really appreciate help in that language.

I can't use Windows Services or SQL Jobs...

Could you help me on this?



How does System.Threading.Timer work (implementation details)


I've read a bunch of articles on the different .NET timers and still don't have a good understanding how the System.Threading.Timer class works.  My concern is whether I'm creating a bunch of timer threads in the thread pool.  I have this concern because one article said something about System.Threading.Timer using a thread pool thread to WAIT on the timer.  I'm hoping that each System.Threading.Timer class I create doesn't create a thread pool timer thread waiting on my timer interval.  I assume not.  Which is why I would like to know how it actually works.

For instance, let's say I create 50 System.Threading.Timer objects with a 5 second interval.  What happens?  Is there some interop call into unmanaged code which creates some timer resources and somehow signals some managed code when a timer has elapsed at which point the managed code queues a work item to the thread pool?  So in my example, at roughly the same point in time .NET would queue 50 work items to the thread pool?



What is the advantage of Parallel Processing(Programming) aganist Multi threading

we are already getting parallel processing from w2k8 and the underlying intel processors evidenced by running an application on a single purpose machine and it showing all cores having equal usage Then why do we go for Parallel Programming in vs 2010?

To list all running tasks - System.Threading.Tasks


Hi everyone,

I am working on System.Threading.Tasks namespace. My requirement is to see all the running tasks within a program, their state and interdependencies.

I have looked at the http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.threading.tasks.task.aspx but could not find a way that will list all running tasks. Would you please guide me how to approach and where to look for?



System.Threading.ThreadAbortException: Thread was being aborted


In my ASP.Net web application, one of the function is calling the WCF service that has been developed by .Net framework 3.0 using VS2005.It works fine on production and user can make request 8 times(calls) between client and service after that the web application got hanged and generated the following error message. But it works fine on development even more than 8 requests.

I given the proxy time out 20 min in the client side proxy setting.

Hello World to C# Threading Part 1

In this post we will see how we can implement simple threading. Why do we need threading? When you want you application to do more then one thing at same time, then you need to implement threading. One usual and common scenario would be when your application needs to get data from some other resource like web services and you don't want you application GUI to be freeze during this time. In that sort of case you will run the code to access web services in separate thread so your application GUI won't freeze. The System.Threading namespace .NET provide interfaces to implement multi threading.

Threading in C#

What is Threading?
-Parallel execution of code pieces on CPU, commonly compiled codes started in a single thread but it is possible to create multi-threads within a program.


Multi-core processors are new standards on the user's hardware. By taking advantage of the multi-processing capabilities of these machines you can achieve significant performance upgrade with some minor changes in your code. When an application does not make use of threading techniques it is wasting valuable resources. This tutorial will cover the basic threading concepts and threading methods and properties.

Multi-threading in .NET: Introduction and suggestions

This article uses the C# type shorthands throughout - int for Int32 etc. I hope this makes it easier for C# developers to read, and won't impede any other developers too much. It also only talks about the C# ways of declaring variables to be volatile and locking monitors. Developers using other languages can find the equivalents in their own preferred environment, I'm sure.

System Development Life Cycle

The Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC) is a conceptual model used in project management that describes the stages involved in an information system development project from an initial feasibility study through maintenance of the completed application. Various SDLC methodologies have been developed to guide the processes involved including the waterfall model (the original SDLC method), rapid application development (RAD), joint application development (JAD), the fountain model and the spiral model. Mostly, several models are combined into some sort of hybrid methodology

The goal of this article is to describe the agile system development life cycle (SDLC), putting it in context from what you may have heard about within the agile community and more importantly within the context of your overall IT efforts.

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.

Problem upgrading to MVC3 - System.Web.Routing



I'm trying to upgrade to .NET 4 and MVC 3.

When trying to compile my project, I get the error:

Error 1 The type or namespace name 'Routing' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Web' (are you missing an assembly reference?) C:\Users\spencer\Desktop\weblauncher\Common\MVCConfig.cs 4 18 Common

The type or namespace name 'Routing' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Web' (are you missing an assembly reference?)

I do have the System.Web.Routing in my references for the project.

BUT - when I try to view System.Web.Routing in the OBJECT BROWSER, nothing is inside!  The System.Web.Routing namespace is not in there - the entire thing is empty!  Could it that the dll is corrupted?  I tried to reinstall the .NET 4 and MVC 3 stuff, but its still empty!

The dll is coming from here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\.NETFramework\v4.0\System.Web.Routing.dll

Good Day all,

Having an issue with an outside user accessing my IIS7 box. I do not have this problem when running the website from my host machine. I found this post: Http://forums.asp.net/t/1371394.aspx. I assure you that this is not a solution because I am not storing any of my files on a network share. 

What do you think my approach should be. 

I already have read rights to IIS user to my BIN folder. 

Thanks for the help. 

System.IO.Packaging is not visible


I am new to ASP.net, I installed VS2005 and IIS 5 on my PC and set up my first website using IIS (not the embedded webserver in VS).

For some reason I cannot find the Assembly: "System.IO.Packaging", please let me know if I am allowed to use it in that medium and how can I reference it?

Thanks in advance.
