Architect A Video Site, From A Performance Point Of View?

Sep 5, 2010

I want to build a high traffic video site, which has many videos and visitors, using ASP.NET. But I have no experience of high traffic sites and video sites. Anyone can give me some stuff to read or some keywords for me to google? In the performance point of view.PDATE: I said our site is similar to Youtube, but that just meant that the site structure would be similar to Youtube. We won't have that high traffic.

Framework /starting Point For Social Networking Site In .NET?

Feb 16, 2010

I'm an ASP.NET/SQL Server developer and would like to develop a (intially) basic social networking site (gasp). Before I start from scratch with a blank solution in ASP.NET, I'm wondering if there are any frameworks out there ASP.NET specific that would serve as a good starting point. I'm already thinking of using the Google Maps jquery control for my Google Maps integration, as well as the 'sharethis' control for my social networking website sharing integration. Captcha for human authentication... But other than that I'm not sure what I can leverage... Nothing on Google jumped out at me on my search terms.

I'm also wondering if anyone else has done something similar and could share their post mortem/war stories with me.

I'm also open to learning a new platform/language if it would mean saving time - my experience is mostly in ASP.NET, so that is what I plan on using if it makes the most sense. My initial requirements are basic and realistic - profile setup (images, information, etc.), 'group' creation, Google Map integration, calendar controls shared by groups, SMS support, discussion forums among groups, searching for groups, OpenID integration most likely, etc. I am not going to try to build the entire site and then release it, but take baby steps and release pieces of functionality at a time.

EDIT: I've found DotNetOpenAuth which seems to be a nice API for handling OpenID for ASP.NET web forms. They also have an ASP.NET MVC version

EDIT2: I also found MS Web Platform. This looks like some good stuff. Anyone ever use it and think it would do well for this sort of app?

EDIT3: I found a library for DotNetNuke called ActiveSocial. It's priced right ($500) and has more than the features I need but lacks some. I wonder if anyone here has ever used AS before. Is DNN easy to extend so I can add Google Maps functionality and such? It doesn't say anywhere on snowcovered (the vendor that sells AS) if AS comes with the source. If it didn't, then I might be screwed because I wouldn't be able to integrate the functionality I want..

MVC :: How To Set A Break Point In A Razor View

Nov 11, 2010

I can't seem to figure out how to set a breakpoint in a Razor view. I understand why that might seem a little weird and may be difficult since a cshtml file is a combination of html and then c# code, but I can step into it. The ability to step into it makes it seem like I should be able to set a breakpoint. Am I missing how to do this or is this not possible in the RC? If not any plans to add this before RTM or in the future?

Performance - Slow First Page Load On Site?

Jan 20, 2010

Every now and then (always after a long period of idle-time, e.g. overnight) when I access a site built using - it takes around 15 seconds to load the page (15 seconds before I see any progress whatsoever, then the page comes up fast).Further pages on that site, or refreshes, are quick as usual - they are also fast on other machines, only the first one seems to take the 'hit'.

Page tracing never through anything up (whole cycle was a fraction of a second) So my question is where else should I be looking? Perhaps IIS? Or could it still be my app and I'm just looking in the wrong place (the trace) for clues?As I don't have much control over the IIS server, anything I can check through would be more helpful, before I go ask that particular admin.

OutputCache Page Directive To Improve Performance Of The Site

May 14, 2010

I am having trouble with the performance of a web site... Some SQL queries are killing the server. But, as the title of this post mention, I looked at the OutputCache page directive to improve performance of the site. Although, I came across some questions regarding this directive:

1- If I have a web-user control that declares an OuputCache directive in a page that has one too, which one will "win"?

2- What's the best pratice regarding the duration ? I'd love to have a sliding window too.

C# - Ensure Offsite Javascript Doesn't Impede Site Performance?

Nov 2, 2010

I need to include an offsite javascript file on my page, however I don't want it to be able to affect the performance of my site, in case the server where the javascript is on is down or not responding.

What I'd like to know, is if it's posible with javascript to make some sort of wrapper function to ensure that the page where the offsite javascript is hosted is responding within an acceptable timeframe.

I've considered adding the "defer" attribute to where I include the javascript, but that would as far as I know still leave the site hanging after the rest of the page is loaded.

If it's not possible to do in javascript are there any good alternatives?

My site is made C#

Configuration :: Maximum Request Length Exceeded - Upload 13 MB Video File To Site

Feb 5, 2010

I am using DotNetNuke and I have posted this in their forum. But it is more appropriate here. I am trying to upload a 13 MB video file to my site ( a .flv file) using the file manager function under the host login. I understand that .NET limits the upload size to 4 MB for security reasons. In accordance with other posts here I added this code to my web.config file to allow bigger upload.

<httpRuntime maxRequestLength="51200" enable = "True"

I added it in the system.web section. Now, I still get this error:

"An error has occurred.DotNetNuke.Services.Exceptions.PageLoadException: Maximum request length exceeded. ---> System.Web.HttpException: Maximum request length exceeded. at System.Web.HttpRequest.GetEntireRawContent() at System.Web.HttpRequest.GetMultipartContent() at System.Web.HttpRequest.FillInFormCollection() at System.Web.HttpRequest.get_Form() at System.Web.HttpRequest.get_HasForm() at System.Web.UI.Page.GetCollectionBasedOnMethod(Boolean dontReturnNull) at System.Web.UI.Page.DeterminePostBackMode() at System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint,

Serverside Controls Vs Html Controls From AJAX Point Of View

Mar 8, 2010

i know this question have been mentioned alot here but mine is a little more updated, now with 4 and new Ajax client templating plus JASON services. so if i got all these new capabilities will i really need server side controls as long as i can bind on client side, create data-views on client side heck i can even use data-context and apply CRUD operations on clients side.

so i actually i wont need button_click server side event or what so ever... i am asking this because i own some commercial Controls like Telerik and Component art and they both offer client side operations ow but still i am confused as to my knowledge creating these controls will still have to go through Page Life cycle
