WCF / ASMX :: WCF Service Configuration In Web Farm And Load Balancing Environment
Oct 21, 2010
I want to configure ASP.NET Website Project using WCF Service[NetTcp] (both in c#) for web-farm (for website) and NLB Load balancing (for service). I would like to configure following options for same. NetTcpBinding.maxConcurrentCalls, NetTcpBinding.ListenBacklog and NetTcpBinding.MaxConnections
Note: During single machine configuration when I changed value of NetTcpBinding.ListenBacklog and NetTcpBinding.MaxConnections in WCF Service project to more that 10, which is default value. I got exception. When I changed this value in Website it was working fine. Due to this I had to keep in default configuration. Not sure why this is the case. If anyone could explain this it would be helpful. Following reference gives idea how to configure in given environment but does not tell how to go about it.

Following reference gives idea how to configure in given environment but does not tell how to go about it. Ref: [URL] Update: Let me simplify a bit. Lets say I have following configuration.
2 IIS servers in Web Farm. 3 WCF Service Servers (NetTcp) in NLB Default config. for single instance. NetTcpBinding.ListenBacklog: 10 NetTcpBinding.MaxConnections: 10 NetTcpBinding.maxConcurrentCalls: 16
Now what will be my configuration setting in this environment. Will it be same as above or will be as follows.
resently we are developing a windows product using dot net, combined withsas (another language). If sas not get installed in local machines then we are in need of using server machine which has sas with it, we are using socket programming to communicate with server machine,Problem is when more number of requests comes to the server for processing sas it is becoming slow, so we need Load balancing If we go with web service which is having same domain name but different ip address mapped using
I am new to asp.net, I have been tasked to upgrade the physical architecture to load balancing environment to support the application. I done some reading the session state should be configure to Out-Process instead of In-Proc to support load balancing. Is there any other issues I need to take note for asp.net web application to run in the load balanced environment?
We are developing an ASP.NET eterprise level application. Customer wants to support for load balancing and fail over. Also customer need that if one server pc fails, end user should not notice that. is this possible? Will there be a timeout for the end user?
i just have a question about using FileUpload control to upload files to server. Let's say i have 2 servers for a network load balancing, should i need to do something for ensure the data/files is synchronize between that 2 servers?
I am working on asp.net (newbie) and I am trying to understand what it means to do "load balancing" for the web site. The website will be used by multiple users and resources (database, web service,..).
I have stopped the application pool, then replaced the XrfUploadService.cs file behind my XrfUploadService.asmx file. I now get errors when I do this: CS0101: The namespace '<global namespace>' already contains a definition for 'XrfUploadService'. What is this about and how can I update my service's code?
I have a asp.net website with separate web server, Application server and database server. Now I need to have configure load balancing with two web and Application server. I don't have any idea about load balancing. how to proceed with load balancing.
We are having two load balancing server. In that we have hosted a asp.net 3.5 application right now we are using request userhostaddress to get visitor ip but it is giving load balancer ip instead of real ip.
I was discussing load-balancing with a colleague at lunch. I admit that I know very little about this topic. We were discussing the various ways of maintaing session in a ASP.NET application -- none of which suited the high performance load balancing that he was looking for. What about Silverlight? says I. As far as I know it is stateless, you've got the app running in the browser and you've got services on the server that feed/process data. Does Silverlight totally negate the need for Session state management? Is it more friendly to load-balancing? Is it something in between?
We have three web servers in our web farm that are load balanced using the Network Load Balancing Manager in Windows 2003. The sites that run on these boxes use In-Proc ASP.NET session. Our assumption is that the balancing uses a "sticky" session because users seem to be assigned to a given server during their use of the application as well as there doesn't appear to be any session error where the session data is residing on a previous machine. My question is how can I 1) verify that our balancing configuration is using "sticky" sessions and 2) can someone explain the load balancing feature in Windows 2003 relative to ASP.NET web applications?
Is there any solutions that "increases power of a single machine" instead of traffic distribution between different hosts. I mean the following schema: "Central server" receives all requests and for its execution it provide "a copy of shared memory" to different hosts.
I wanted to understand the behavior of HttpContext.Current.Application during the load balancing. I have read that session can be stored in disk hence can be retrieved from different servers. Is this true for HttpContext.Current.Application also. Does the keydata stored in one machine is accessible in other different machine too?
We are planning to introduce Load balancing in our server environment. Our site has lots of thumbnails (Thumbimages) to get displayed on the website. As all the images should be there under Web directory to get displayed on web site, do I need to maintain these TNs in all the servers? Is there any other way to accomplish this?
My website/application is in ASP.NET. I use the traditional Session object when people connect so they have their preference, etc. My problem is that sessions were lost very often. I discovered that my hosting company was using load balancing on their servers, so one request on my website can be on one server, and the other on another one.
I tried to store the session data in a SQL Server database, but I quickly discovered that I can't create the needed database on my shared server because I only have one database in my package. Also, there is no guarantee that the rest of the script would have been able to run.
My questions: is there any other way to get around this problem? Should I buy another database only for this? Is there another type of session that I could use? Is there anything else I can use instead of session to keep track of my user when they are connected on my website?
We are using two load balancing server for asp.net site in that we have a functionality which will create a receipt of order in pdf using abcpdf component it was working fine without load balancing server and but when we move it to load balancing server it is giving errors like. A generic error occurred in GDI. I have given full rights to directory which is used but still there problem. Does anybody have a solutions for this.
I've been assigned a task to get a site ready for migration over to a load balanced architecture. It will have 4 active servers and 2 static, where the active ones will contain the main site, with the static ones containing images, text files etc..My question is, what is the best way to deal with the image paths in this situation?e.g. one one server the image will be something like : 'serverONE/images/image.jpg' but this need the ability to change to 'serverTWO/images/image.jpg'
We currently have two web servers (Windows Server 2008 Standard, IIS7) setup to host an ASP.Net website and are using the basic features of our hardware firewall to provide network load balancing (NLB) between the two servers. This means we have had to change the ASP.Net session state mode to SQL Server in order to make the data stored in session accessible no matter which server responds to the request. The main issue now is that crystal reports (basic edition packaged with VS2008) do not seem to support serialization which is needed in order to store/transfer the report to session state on SQL Server.
From what I have read so far in order to get crystal reports working in a web farm environment it seems the only option is to upgrade to Crystal Reports Server and load the reports from a third server. Another option may be to use SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) as we already have this so no extra cost involved, however I'm not sure if SSRS would resolve the issue with storing reports in session?
To clarify, I understand that when a user hits the public-facing URL, it resolves to x.x.x.1. x.x.x.1 is the address for a switch which routes the request to either x.x.x.2, x.x.x.3, or x.x.x.4. When I use the public-facing URL, I find that some of the axd file requests are intermittently rerouted to Error.aspx! WTF? I'm told that this is the result of a security feature that is meant to protect me from cross-site scripting and other assorted bad stuff. What can I do? Update After taking out some error page auto-redirects, I get a more meaningful error message: ASP.NET Ajax client-side framework failed to load.
My servers are behind F5 load balancer, I wanna use HttpRuntime.Cache in my web application but I didn't find out the way for to use that method for those using network load balancing server. Or can we store that HttpRuntime.Cache to sql server like the session we do in web.config file?
I have the following web farm setup in production server. Browser --> HTTPS --> Load Balancer --> HTTP --> webserver node F5 Load balancer handles off box SSL termination. It implies that SSL resides on F5 load balancer. Problem Statement: Ajax calls do not go through unless "Access data sources across domains" option is enabled in IE security settings.
I have the similar setup in staging server except F5 Load balancer. The ASP.Net application makes perfect AJAX calls on both HTTP and HTTPS. However, the staging server web farm use windows NLB and SSL resides on individual web server nodes
