What is the In-Memory BI Engine (IMBI)?

Posted By :abhays     Posted Date :April 29, 2014    Points :40   Category :SharePoint 
The In Memory multidimensional data analysis engine (IMBI), also known as the Vertipaq engine, allows for almost instant analysis.

What is Automatic Memory Management in ASP.NET?

Automatic Memory Management: From a programmer's perspective, this is probably the single biggest benefit of the .NET Framework. No, I'm not kidding. Every project I've worked on in my long career of DOS and Windows development has suffered at some point from memory management issues. Proper memory management is hard. Even very good programmers have difficulty with it. It's entirely too easy for a small mistake to cause a program to chew up memory and crash, sometimes bringing the operating system to a screeching halt in the process.

Programmers understand that they're responsible for releasing any memory that they allocate, but they're not very good at actually doing it. In addition, functions that allocate memory as a side effect abound in the Windows API and in the C runtime library. It's nearly impossible for a programmer to know all of the rules. Even when the programmer follows the rules, a small memory leak in a support library can cause big problems if called enough.

The .NET Framework solves the memory management problems by implementing a garbage collector that can keep track of allocated memory references and release the memory when it is no longer referenced. A large part of what makes this possible is the blazing speed of today's processors. When you're running a 2 GHz machine, it's easy to spare a few cycles for memory management. Not that the garbage collector takes a huge number of cycles--it's incredibly efficient.
The garbage collector isn't perfect and it doesn't solve the problem of mis-managing other scarce resources (file handles, for example), but it relieves programmers from having to worry about a huge source of bugs that trips almost everybody up in other programming environments.
On balance, automatic memory management is a huge win in almost every situation. (More...)

In .NET Compact Framework, can I free memory explicitly without waiting for garbage collector to free the memory?

Yes you can clear the memory using gc.collect method but it is recommended that u should not call this becouse we don't know the exact time when the gc will be called automatic. (More...)

Which typically consumes more memory: application state or session state?

Session state tends to use much more memory than application state, because copies of all variables are stored for each user. (More...)

Which is the heart of the .net engine?

The CLR is the engine that drives every .Net application. It consists of the jitter [the Just In Time compiler] that compiles CIL [Common Intermediate Language] to native object code, the garbage collector, the Common Type System [CTS] and the exception handling machinery. The CLR gets threads and bulk memory management from the underlying operating system, and not much else. (More...)

what is session ,cache, cookie, application memory timeout?


Session timeout: 20 min
Cache timeout: duration we have to specify.
Cookie: for in memory cookie till browser opened
For persistent cookie timeout is till expires property's time .
Application memory timeout: till appdomain exist (More...)

What happens in memory when you Box and Unbox a value-type?

Boxing converts a value-type to a reference-type, thus storing the object on the heap. Unboxing converts a reference-type to a value-type, thus storing the value on the stack. (More...)

Explain about Razor View Engine ?

This Razor View engine is a part of new rendering framework for ASP.NET web pages.
ASP.NET rendering engine uses opening and closing brackets to denote code (<% %>), whereas Razor allows a cleaner, implied syntax for determining where code blocks start and end.


In the classic renderer in ASP.NET:

    <% foreach (var userTicket in Model)

    { %>

  • <%: userTicket.Value %>

  • <% } %>

By using Razor:

    @foreach (var userTicket in Model)


  • @userTicket.Value

  • }
