Don’t we already have Portable Class Libraries (PCL), Windows Phone (WP) and Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps? … Continue reading .NET Encore

Production postmorterm: Houston, we have a problem

As you read this post, you might want to also consider letting this play in the background. We had a UDP port leak in RavenDB. We squashed it like a bug, but somehow it kep repeating.   We found one cause of it (and fixed it), finally. That was after several rounds of looking at the code and fixing a few “this error condition can lead to the socket not being properly disposed”. Finally, we pushed to our own internal systems, and monitored things, and saw that it was good. But the bloody bug kept repeating. Now,
instead of manifesting as thousands of UDP ports, we had just a dozen or so, but they were (very) slowly increasing. And it drove us nuts. We had logging there, and we could see that we didn’t had the kind of problems that we had before. And everything looked good. A full reproduction of the issue can be here, but the relevant piece of code is here: Timer timer = new Timer(async state => { try { var addresses = await Dns.GetHostAddressesAsync(""); ...(Read whole news on source site)

Beer IoT: Making cooling rate calculation testable

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
My previous beer IoT post introduced how to measure cooling rate of beer. As I introduced the first calculation there I implemented it in code the way it just works and gets calculations done. Now it’s time to focus on the implementation and make some small improvements that clean up code and improve technical design. The post Beer IoT: Making cooling rate calculation testable appeared first on Gunnar Peipman - Programming Blog.

SQL SERVER – dbForge Object Search for SQL Server

SSMS is a nice tool for database developers. However, it is far from being ideal, and this is because some routine operations in SSMS are extremely inconvenient to perform. Very often, developers face the challenge of searching a database for all occurrences of an object, column, variable, or search simultaneously all the objects, in which […]
