C#: How to store real-time updating measurements in a database (C#)

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :WPF
I have real-time updating measurements (for each second some new values).

Task: I have to store these real-time updating measurements in a database.

Question: Since I am working with C#, I have 2 basic questions:
(1) How to store real-time updating values in C# (within in database framework)?
(2) Should I use MySQL as database?

Thanks in advance,

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.

huge number of data from database ... so how to minimize load time


Hi ...

I have used the above method to configure my crystal report ...

Its working fine , But i have huge number of data in database ....

So , it take long time to load the report ...

So , i have decided to show only the last 50 records inserted into the database , not all the 500 records to be loaded every time.

Plz help me with this issue  ...


Also , Plz explain me abt index legend in crystal report.

Can this code be setup to run against the whole database instead of just 1 record at a time?


We have made some changes to this code to start capturing 1 new field of data and updating it as new records are added. But there is currently about 120,000 records more or less.. those records of course dont have the new field populated with anything..

We would like to run this logic that already in place and run it against the tables to update the fields 1 time. I think to make it easier, if it can be setup to expect the "valueTwo" variable, so that we can run it againt the individual codes instead of doing all the records at one time.. there are codes that only have a few records, so it would be best to test initially against the small code group.


            strSqual = "insert into trans (trans_type_name, trans_date,sys_id,mod_user_id,show_ind, remoteCode, techName) values('" & valueTwo & "','" & TransDate & "',"&strSystemID&", 1,'T', '" & dbQuote(strUser) & "', '" & strTechName & "')"        
            'get the new transaction_id out for just inserted alarm   
            strSqual = "select max(transaction_id) as transaction_id from trans"  
            set rst = getStaticRecordSet(strSqual)

Crystal Report Asking for Database Authentication each time when I view Page.


Whenever I open my Crystal Report page, I am taken to the Database Authentication page where I am asked for

User name
Data Name

each time.

Is there a way to avoid this and I save these authentication in my page once.

I am using VS2005, C#.

Any Help will be appriciated.


Timers: Implement a Continuously Updating, High-Resolution Time Provider for Windows


The timestamps that you can obtain from Windows NT are limited to a maximum resolution of 10 or 15 milliseconds, depending on the underlying hardware. At times, such as when you need to timetag frequent events, it is desirable to achieve a higher resolution. For example, what if you want to be able to contact a thread or perform some other task at intervals more frequent than 10 milliseconds? Suggested ways of achieving better resolution include using performance counters in conjunction with the sytem time to calculate smaller time increments. But using performance counters is a technique that presents its own problems. This article shows one possible way of overcoming limitations inherent in this approach.

SQL Server: Build Apps that Provide Real-Time Information and Customized Content Using SQL Server No


The adoption of wireless devices continues to spread unabated, and organizations are looking for new ways to get in touch with customers through these new mobile devices. In the past, unsuccessful ideas such as push technology were used to send targeted information to customers. Now, SQL Server Notification Services uses the SQL Server 2000 database engine and the .NET Framework to promote a new breed of notification applications that will allow relevant, consensual communications to be sent to any subscriber device.Here the author provides an architectural overview of the core features that make up SQL Server Notification Services. Along the way he discusses how they can be used for pushing Web content.

DirectX 8.0: Enhancing Real-Time Character Animation with Matrix Palette Skinning and Vertex Shaders


DirectX 8.0 allows the creation of smooth and realistic character movements that are more life-like than simple articulated structure animations. This is made possible by its improved support for vertex tweening and blended vertex deformations, also known as soft-skinning. After a brief history of the use of these techniques in DirectX, soft-skinning using the fixed function pipeline is discussed. This is followed by the use of matrix palettes from within vertex shaders to create a customized soft-skinning solution that takes advantage of the benefits of vertex shaders, such as hardware acceleration and custom lighting algorithms without the limitations of fixed-function solutions.

Windows CE 3.0: Enhanced Real-Time Features Provide Sophisticated Thread Handling


Windows CE is a small, configurable, feature-rich, real-time operating system. In Windows CE 3.0, the real-time support has been improved. This article looks at specific support for the creation of real-time systems and how it compares to the support in Windows for the desktop. The way interrupt handlers, processes, memory management, and synchronization work in Windows CE 3.0 is discussed. An extensive look at threads and thread priority, misconceptions surrounding them, and their impact on performance is included. Refinements to the Windows CE scheduler and support for nestable interrupts are also covered.

Help with updating database with values from Repeater control using c#


Hello, I'm new to ASP.NET 3.5 with C#. I really need some help.

I used a Repeater control to create a simple (editable) list where, when a user logs in, they can edit their list of expenses.  The ASP page works fine.

 My issue is with the code-behind.  I am really confused with how to extract the values from the repeater control. The FindControl method does not seem to be working.  Also, the code I am using resets my 'Amount' values back to 0.00. (0.00 is the amount the user sees when they first encounter the page).

 Here's a portion of the code on the ASP page:

<asp:Repeater ID="Repeater1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1"





<td><asp:Label ID="lblExpId" runat="server"  Text='<%# Bind("ExpId") %>'></asp:Label> </td>

 <td><asp:Textbox ID="lblExpense" runat="server" Width= "190px" Text='<%# Bind("ExpenseName") %>'></asp:Textbox> </td>

 <td><asp:Textbox ID="txtAmount" runat="server" Width= "100px"

Real-time data replication

Are there any ways to replicate sql server production database to a standby database? I notice that there is a feature called 'continuous replication', does it do in real-time? what is the time-lag? Are there any potential data loss (i.e., production transaction committed but production db corrupted before the transaction is sent to standby)? Is the standby database available for read access during the replication?

Is there a way to backup all my store procedures under a particular SQL 2005 database?

hi all, Is there a script, doc, VBS script, SQL statement out there which will read all my store procedures and save them as a TXT file? Currently I have to save all of them in text files before I update them when I get a new web site release. Thank you  JCD

VS 2010 could not find database at design time

Hi all, I'm having this problem.... Scenario: C# 2010, WPF, SQL Compact 3.5 SP2. I'm working at a wpf window which loads records from a SQL Compact DB and shows data in textboxes. At runtime everything works perfectly but since this morning (working on it last 2 days) i'm not able to edit the window at DesignTime. As soon as I open the window with the wpf editor I got the error (translating from Italian): "Impossible to find the database. Check the database path. [Data Source = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\thedbfile.sdf]" Now, in settings and app.config I have the connection string which is something like Data Source=|DataDirectory|\thedbfile.sdf I don't understand why and where NOW (only since this afternoon) at Design Time VS look that path for the database, while at RunTime it's ok. Again, I'm using Datasets, and I can preview data, ecc., as said everything is ok except the edit of the window which crash with this error.... thanks
