WCF Hosted in IIS Gives System.ServiceModel.CommunicationException When transfering large byte array

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF

I have a WCF service hosted in IIS that takes a byte array. If I send a small byte array the service works, if I send a large (282, 624) byte array the service fails.

I have tried increasing values etc in the config files and nothing seems to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

The config files are as follows:


<?xml version="1.0"?>
    <add key="GetDataFromServer" value="False"/>
    <add key="UseWpfService" value="True" />
     <add name="ServerEntities" connectionString="metadata=res://*/Server.csdl|res://*/Server.ssdl|res://*/Server.msl;provider=System.Data.SqlClient;provider connection string=&quot;Data Source=XPS1;Initial Catalog=TestServer;Integrated Security=True;MultipleActiveResultSets=True&quot;" providerName="System.Data.EntityClient" />

Converting a System.Windows.Control.Image object to byte array.

Hi i need to convert a specific System.Windows.Control.Image object into an (int) array, because i'm trying to convert a silverlight application into a wpf project. private void createGi02GradBrush()<br/> {<br/> WriteableBitmap oWriteableBitmap = new WriteableBitmap(256, 256);<br/> Image oImage = new Image();<br/> oImage.Arrange(new Rect(0, 0, 256, 256));<br/> oImage.Measure(new Size(256, 256));<br/> oImage.Source = new WriteableBitmap(256, 256);<br/> Gi02GradShaderEffect oGi02GradShaderEffect = new Gi02GradShaderEffect();<br/> oGi02GradShaderEffect.pArray = oPImageBrush;<br/> oGi02GradShaderEffect.gi1GradArray = oGi1GradImageBrush;<br/> oImage.Effect = oGi02GradShaderEffect;<br/> oWriteableBitmap.Render(oImage, null);//here<br/> oWriteableBitmap.Invalidate(); <br/> this.oGi02GradImageBrush = new ImageBrush();<br/> this.oGi02GradImageBrush.ImageSource = oWriteableBitmap;<br/> } I've found some similar topics however Image object is not the same and most of its methods aren't available. Here I'm rendering a writablebitmap with a given Image object, but in wpf we need an array. oWriteableBitmap.Render(oImage, null); Any idea? Thanks. Joseph.  



Hi All

I'm getting the following exception and have no clue, how to fix it so far i have increased the buffer sizes timeouts etc. with out any luck. I debuged the service call from service end and it just takes split of a second to returned the results [server operation is just a simple select which wouldn't take 100th of a second]. I'm pretty sure this has nothing to do with a Timeout. Can some atleast tell me how to approach the problem, i'm totally lost here now.

Even though i increased the buffer sizes i think tht has nothing to do with it cos the GetAll function works where as the GetById fails.

[System.ServiceModel.CommunicationException] = {"The socket connection was aborted. This could be caused by an error processing your message or a receive timeout being exceeded by the remote host, or an underlying network resource issue. Local socket timeout was '00:00:59.9980000'."}

Converting a byte array to a gif


Hi there,

I am currently in the process of trying to convert a byte array into a gif format. So far I have done this:

                        byte[] gif = Convert.FromBase64String(myByteArray);
                        MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream(gif);
                        Bitmap image = new Bitmap(ms);
                        string pathToSave = Server.MapPath("~/_temp/");
                        iconUrl = string.Format("{0}/{1}.gif", pathToSave, fileName);

When this code block executes, I get the following error:

A generic error occurred in GDI+.

I have made sure that I have the correct permissions for the _temp folder, but I am not sure if I am trying to convert "bad bytes". Could someone perhaps shed some light on this error?

How to Pass higher Length of Byte Array to the remoting method

Dear all,I am using a windows application and the businness logic is present in the remote server.Once particular method takes bytearray as input parameter...Whenever the method call is made the function returns value .This is limited for the particular bytearray length. (4109228 bytes).If the length of bytearray crosses 4109228 bytes.I am getting an error that "input stream is not valid binary format".How to Pass higher Length of Byte Array to the remoting method... Greater than 4 MB?I believe something is missing in web.config or app.config...?What could be the issue...? Any sugesstions are welcome....ThanksRavikumar

Problem with DuplexChannelFactory(System.ServiceModel.InstanceContext, System.ServiceModel.Descripti

I have derived a class from DuplexChannelFactory, and one of the constructors of the derived class takes System.ServiceModel.InstanceContext and System.ServiceModel.Description.ServiceEndpoint arguments. I simply pass them down to the base DuplexChannelFactory class, e.g.: public DerivedDuplexChannelFactory(System.ServiceModel.InstanceContext instanceContext, System.ServiceModel.Description.ServiceEndpoint endPoint) : base(instanceContext, endPoint) {} The problem I am running into that I get timeout exceptions when trying to callback the client during a service call, e.g.: Client subscribes to Service Client calls some Service method, during which call the Service will callback to the client Before I go further, if I call down to a different base constructor of DuplexChannelFactory, things work perfectly, e.g.: public DerivedDuplexChannelFactory(System.ServiceModel.InstanceContext instanceContext, System.ServiceModel.Description.ServiceEndpoint endPoint) : base(instanceContext, endPoint.Binding, endPoint.Address) {} If I use the former, I get the following exception: "This request operation sent to http://schemas.microsoft.com/2005/12/ServiceModel/Addressing/Anonymous did not receive a reply within the configured timeout (00:00:59.9820000). The time allotted to this operation may have been a portion of a longer timeout. This may be because the service is still pr

How to create an extremely large array/object (> 2 GB) without using jagged arrays ?

Hello,I had implemented a matrix scaling algorithm in Java (64-bit) for a university project and have now implemented the code in C# with .NET 3.5 64-bit. One of the operations I did in Java was creating a rectangular array with double[][] = ... (in C# this is a jagged array!) to store a symmetric matrix which is used as input for the algorithm. Since I was using matrices with n up to 30720, memory usage for the single matrix object was around 8 GB in it's maximum and with matrix multiplication around 20 GB.So... now I implemented this in C# and I am shocked to see that double[,] (rectangular arrays) can only be 2 GB in size even on 64-bit! That means that for matrices with n larger than ~15000 I will get OutOfMemory Exceptions although there is a huge amount of free memory (I have two quad core systems with 12 GB and 24 GB Ram). When I use jagged arrays in C# (i.e. double[][]) I can create larger matrices. That is because I have one small array with the size of the row number (i.e. n) and then for each row an array of size n, but they are all single objects so I don't reach the 2 GB per object limit. The problem with jagged arrays is that they are horribly slow for matrice calculations compared to rectangular arrays and even slower compared to single dimension arrays.Actually I intended to rewrite my code and simulate the matrices in single arrays (see sample code below) bec

SSRS 2008 Export to PDF fails for large data with System.Exception: Parameter is not valid

Hi, We are working on Range Bar Chart using SSRS 2008. The report has huge data. It is properly displaying the data, but when we tried to export to pdf it is failing with the following exception. Exporting to excel works fine. Also if the report has small/medium data it is property exporting to PDF. It is failing only in case of huge data (we have custom page size of 28" X 14"). Of course the report has lot of expressions we used to customize the colors/text as per our requirements.   Server Error in '/Reports_SQLDEV2008' Application. Parameter is not valid.

Where is System.Web.Extensions.dll now? Fails on remote hosted server.

I've read all the notes about how from RC2 to ajax.net the name space has changed. "The core ASP.NET AJAX assembly has been changed from Microsoft.Web.Extensions.dll to System.Web.Extensions.dll. In addition, the namespace has changed from Microsoft.Web.* to System.Web.*. For some reason, my app runs on my local machine but when I copy it to a remote server (that does not have the ajax updated installed) it fails.  How can I get an IIS installation to work?  Am I missing a dll that I can push up to the remote server?  I can't run the install on the remote machine becasue it's a hosted server. Thanks

Placing ..... configuration information in a config file other than app.config

Hi, I'm sorry if this question has been asked/answered before on this forum. I have searched both here and on the web in general, but to no avail as yet... I am running VS2010 and .Net 4, so in theory have all the latest versions of everything at my disposal. I have an executable a.exe. This downcalls into a dll b.dll. b.dll wants to send an MSMQ message using WCF. For cleanness (a.exe is a generic service and knows nothing about WCF) I want to define the client endpoint in b.dll.config. However I am finding that WCF is insisting that the information is held in a.exe.config. The exact problem is that when I create my proxy (i.e. the class which derives from ClientBase<T>), I get the message Could not find endpoint element with name 'XXX' and contract 'YYY' in the ServiceModel client configuration section. This might be because no configuration file was found for your application, or because no endpoint element matching this name could be found in the client element. From what I have seen I have just described an extremely common problem that people have had with WCF over the years. My questions is basically to find out, given that I have WCF 4 at my disposal, whether there is now a standard approach to this scenario? Things I have tried so far: The obvious one...putting all my config info in a.exe.config. When I do this, everything works file, so I

XmlSerializer: Serialize an array of System.Drawing.Color

Ok,  here is my problem... I am building a UI configuration tool that utiliizes a PropertyGrid.  One of the properties is a indexed list of Colors contained in an array: CategoryAttribute("Style"), DisplayName("Data Set Colors"), DescriptionAttribute(""), XmlArray("SetColors"), XmlArrayItem(ElementName="Color",Type=typeof(SColor))] public Color[] SetColors { get; set; } The beauty of the PropertyGrid is it knows how to handle this Poperty and properly handles array and list of Colors. BUT...   As we already know in order to serialize a Color,  we have to use a surrigate property,  which is very unfortunate, and I fear is one of those little thing MS just overlooked.  (I understand it is actually a structure and not a class and has not default properties from which to get type info from.) I am really amazed that when I do serialize the class,  the XML is soooo  close to what I need,  its just missing the actual color value data: <AppGridColumnConfig xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"> <Name>Label</Name> <SetColors> <Color /> <Color /> <Color /> </SetColors> <IsDefaultEditable>false</IsDefaultEditable> <IsDirtyCheck&
