first of all i'm happy overall on performance of the new asp.net forums. one suggestion i would like to share is i've observed number of users logging on weekends is considerably low, in future could you guys roll out updates on weekends if possible. i know
we all need happy weekends [:D].
cheers and congrats again [yes].

I'm noticed that I can't read the forums using IE7, it seems to reload the page repeatedly. In Firefox I'm fine. Not sure if you need to know, or even if you already know, but hey ho.
In fire fox the site looks nice, very nice.

Its so sad to hear that. I am just thinking if you guys can run into such big performance issue what can happen with small sites. How can we optimize and test a site for performance in test server itself?

First of all... it's never nice when implementations go wrong. I have experiance that a few times myself, and that is very stressfull and never a plesant experiance... but for me it was (in a way) a releaving feeling to see that me and my development team
are not the only ones that have had to roolback our websites. So for this time, you will not hear any complaint from me. [;)]
Hint, tips and trick of the day:
Well.. you propably already know this, but just a little tip... Me and my development team have spent hours and hours myself looking for that little piece of code that made the CPU on the server go crasy, and one piece of advice might sound like: Use the
StringBuilder and not the 'Str &= "Something"'-thing!

This explanation sounds a bit amateur to me. In a well planned transition you have to account for a rollback and a rollforward with info entered during the havoc. Sql server has that, its called the transaction log.
I really don't want to be sarcastic or snub, but truly, we the lonely programmers look up to you guys, the Microsoft super team, and you not applying your own technologies appropiately is very disappointing.
I still appreciate the sincerity, and it takes guts to come out and admit something like that. I'd probably told my boss that the gremlings attacked us.

I think your comments are a bit out of context. Things happen in the technology world and for you to go and say something like that, It is a bit amateurish. Maybe keeping comments to yourself and not harping on the gentleman and woman that work hard to
keep this site up and running for all of us to use to expand our knowledge and get help in the microsoft technology world. Not to sound snub(as you said) but maybe there is a reason they are working for microsoft and you are not!. Sorry but your post rubbed
me the wrong way....

Peace out folks, yea Joshua is correct things are missed out sometimes its not a big issue we all are human to err is our nature isnt it and i'm sure as i believe the teams behind this site never did anything wrong intentionally. they are supporting so many
users i heard 1lakh or so.
i really applaud what they have been doing though i've few issues which many of us might be having like design etc stuff but they cant customize site for individuals isnt it [;)].
cheers every 1.

To err is human...
To roll out new software and find that it actually works is divine...
This is not meant as criticism for what happened this morning, and I really look forward to hearing what went right, what went wrong and how you fixed it.
I would also be interested in the site infrastructure, number of servers, configuration, what servers process what requests, and how the database servers are structured.
Big projects always have that little bit extra meat that requires real processing power.
Best of Luck

To the ASP.NET Team:
Thanks for admitting even .NET insiders can be human! (Who here has not had a deployment blow-up once?)!
We are REALLY looking forward to hearing the details of the problem, HOW it was diagnosed and HOW it was fixed.
We would love to hear the details of the site upgrade itself and how the interactions led to an error...
This is a great chance to teach the community from a real-life example!
Keep us posted ASAP

Community Server 2007? slowly [:O]

The forums don't work properly for me in IE6, it looks like a CSS issue, content sitting on top of other content, hiding it.

By the way... are you going to try again soon?
Jun 18, 2007 08:39 AM|rhoward|LINK
We made and attempt this weekend to move forums.asp.net to its own hardware, but had to scrap the update. We're going to try again next weekend.
Jun 19, 2007 08:23 PM|rhoward|LINK
forums.asp.net is now running on a dedicated web server cluster. We're going to move the db to a dedicated DB server in the next few days as well.
