High performance chat application

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hi there. I want to create high-perfomance chat application compatible with mobile platforms.  (It is not actually chat, but architecture is pretty similar)

My biggest concerns are: I need to update messages for everybody every 1 second. Also I need to insert very often to database.

I'm just wondering whether there is a better way than doing trips every second to database?

And also, what are the best practices on creating this kind of applications?

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.

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 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.

Serial Communication

Figure 11: A chat application using the SerialPort class.
In .NET Compact Framework 1.1, accessing the serial ports on the device involves performing a Platform Invoke (P/Invoke) operation, which is often an arduous and error-prone process. With .NET Compact Framework 2.0, you can access serial ports using the SerialPort class.

AT THE time of searching I got one script. which is very helpful.  But in the script author has used all the members who has logged will be appeared in the chat box. instead of this i have to put only the members who's are in the friendlist. i have to show only these members.

Following is the project from where i get script.

As well as in the code author has passed dynamic userid to session but i have to pass actuall userid from database.


from Here I download the code. but the code is in the 3.5 framework. i m using 2.0 framwork. so most of the code I have changed but not getting how to make changes for list.

Please help me to solve the Problem.

Thanks In Advance

Winsock: Get Closer to the Wire with High-Performance Sockets in .NET


The Win32 Windows Sockets library (Winsock) provides mechanisms to improve the performance of programs that use sockets, and the Microsoft .NET Framework provides a layer over Winsock so that managed applications can communicate over sockets. To use all these layers to write a truly high-performance socket-based application requires a little background information, as Daryn Kiely explains here.

.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.

ATL Server and Visual Studio .NET: Developing High-Performance Web Applications Gets Easier


When developing high-performance applications for the Web, developers often must choose between performance and ease of development. With ATL Server, new with Visual Studio .NET, developers get the best of both worlds. ATL Server uses a tag replacement engine written in C++, provides a simple programming model, and promotes enhanced performance and easy debugging. This article presents an overview of the ATL Server architecture, then creates a basic ATL Server project. It then goes on to explain processing SRF files, HTTP streams, forms, cookies, and header files. Managing session state is also discussed, along with file uploads and performance monitoring.
