Long Running Web Page - Generate A Text File Conforming To A File Specification?

Jul 8, 2010

I have an application I am trying to write that generates a text file conforming to a file specification, and the file could contain thousands of lines. This part is easy. The more challenging part for me is the user interface. It needs to be a web interface with various options to affect what data gets on the file; this part is no problem. The process for generating the file, though, could take a little time depending on the amount of data , and I would think the web page would time out.

What options do I have for the UI? Could I create some sort of service that the page calls and runs in the background? When the process errors or is finished, I'm thinking there could be an email sent out, or even messages displayed on the page.

Web Forms :: Timeout Error Continues On Long - Running Web App Supposedly Already Configured To Accommodate Long

Jun 16, 2010

I've developed a web application to accept video file uploads and then pass them to a backend service on an external server. The application runs without error on the visual studio debugging webserver, but once on a production iis 6 or 7 server, yields a timeout error at about a consistent amount of time into handling a large upload. Specifically, it errors in the middle of transferring the video file to the external server, once the application has successfully received it from the client. I'm aware of several timeouts to be configured related to the problem, and have done so. The application's web config has been tested with one or both of the following settings

<httpRuntime executionTimeout="9999999" maxRequestLength="2048000" />
<location path="default.aspx"> (the page at issue that's timing out)
<httpRuntime executionTimeout="9999999" maxRequestLength="2048000" />

And within the initialization of the webrequest made to the external server to send the video received from the client browser:

HttpWebRequest httpWebRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(url);
httpWebRequest.ContentType = "multipart/form-data; boundary=" + boundary;
httpWebRequest.Method = "POST";
httpWebRequest.Timeout = System.Threading.Timeout.Infinite;

So with the execution time limits on both the webform as a whole and the connection made to the external server, I'm at a loss for what timeout is left unconfigured, or how to determine such, when I continue to get the following error: Unexpected error executing Brightcove Upload:...........................

AJAX :: Update Page From Long Running WCF Service

Jan 12, 2010

I have a long-running WCF service that I need to call, but I would like to do is to open modal window (modal popup extender) that simply shows progress and stops the user from interacting on the page until the service returns. What I was trying to do was the following:

1. Click button to activate the process which calls a method in my code-behind.
2. This method opens my modal panel with some pretty animation.
3. I call my WCF service asychronously so that the UI will refresh.
4. Service ends which calls my delegate I setup.
5. My delegate method would then refresh the page with results, and dismiss the model popup.

Databases :: Losing Connection When Running Long Running Oracle Procedure?

Jul 1, 2010

I am executing a long-running Oracle stored procedure from .NET. The procedure takes about three hours to run. Ideally, the user should be able to kick off the procedure, close the browser, and come back later to check the results.

The problem is that the connection to the Oracle procedure is lost after exactly an hour. As you would expect, the Oracle procedre runs to completion if it is executed from SQL Plus. Strangely enough, it will also run to completion if I run in debug mode on my local machine (I start two threads, one of which executes the procedure. I set a breakpoint on the second thread).

Here is my connection string:


Some relevant sections from web.config:

<sessionState mode="InProc" cookieless="false" timeout="3000" stateNetworkTimeout="72000"/>
<httpRuntime executionTimeout="18000" maxRequestLength="2097151" />

Any thoughts as to why the connection is being lost in exactly an hour, and what I can do to maintain the connection until the procedure finishes?

and in MVC we could use ActionFilter, but I really don't find how to achieve it in webmatrix.

Web Forms :: Text File From Client Machine Into Text Box On Page

Oct 12, 2010

I have an input type, so a text box which has a browse button next to it. When it is clicked, the file that is selected has it's full path placed into the text box.

<input type="file" runat="server" id="txtFilename" style="width:400px" />

I don't want the file to be uploaded to the website. I just want to contents of the file read and placed in a textbox all with one click on the browse button.

IIS 6/7 Threading - Long Running Aspx Page Keeps Other Aspx Pages From Loading

Oct 11, 2010

I wrote a test page that does a bunch of busy work in a method called at page load. This process as I have it now takes around 12 seconds.

If I try to load another page while the first long running page is loading, this second page doing nothing except writing out a world, it doesn't load until the first long running page is finished.

Why is this the case? I would think IIS would be able to handle multiple concurrent connections, it seems crazy that one long running page would stop every other page in the application from loading. I must be missing something or not understand how IIS works.

I would think multiple independent requests would be spawned on different threads. Is this only the case if the requests are from different sessions entirely? Are all requests from a single session bound to a single thread?

Intermittent Bug - IE6 Showing File As Text In Browser Rather Than As File Download

Dec 30, 2010

In an ASP.NET WebForms 2.0 site we are encountering an intermittent bug in IE6 whereby a file download attempt results in the contents of the being shown directly in the browser as text, rather than the file save dialog being displayed. Our application allows the user to download both PDF and CSV files. The code we're using is:

HttpResponse response = HttpContext.Current.Response;
response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment;filename="theFilename.pdf"");
response.ContentType = "application/pdf";

This is called from the code-behind click event handler of a button server control. Where are we going wrong with this approach? Edit Following James' answer to this posting, the code I'm using now looks like this:

HttpResponse response = HttpContext.Current.Response;
// Setting cache to NoCache was recommended, but doing so results in a security
// warning in IE6
response.AppendHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename="theFilename.pdf"");
response.ContentType = "application/pdf";

However, I don't believe that any of the changes made will fix the issue.

Read Large File Size Text File?

Jan 17, 2011

I have a text file with tab as delimiter. There are about 20 fields in the text file and the file size is about 150MB-200MB.

I need to filter out each row in the textfile based on its field criteria, For Eg: the i should ignore the particular row if the Field A is empty.

I know that by reading out the text file row by row it will be certainly slow.

how to read out the text file fast and also how to do the file processing for the read out text file?

Web Forms :: Processing Indicator For A Long Process With File Uploads?

Jan 20, 2011

On my current project I have to accept 2 Excel spreadsheets that will be uploaded by clients, process them and create a download package based on this information. This process includes extracting data from the sheets, updating our databases and building several PDF files for the download package. This takes between 15 seconds to 2 minutes to complete, depending on the complexity of the request. Naturally, I want to show some kind of processing indicator rather than just leaving the user hanging while the page loads.

Here's the problem: How to show this processing indicator.

I have to do a full postback to upload the files so this eliminates several nice AJAX indicator methods (sponsoring users rejected the AJAX toolkit async file upload, saying it was confusing to them). If I process on any of the page events during the postback, the page doesn't load until the lengthy process is completed so the browser/site looks 'hung'.

Basically, I need some ideas on how to display a 'building your download' graphic while the lengthy process is working that will also work with a full postback.

C# - Hosts File Edit Taking A Long Time To Work?

Aug 5, 2010

Whenever I add an entry to the Hosts file on Windows, it takes a long time for the change to take place? I have tested using Firefox and IE and it seems to take around 5 minutes on both of them before the new IP/Domain entry on Hosts is recognised.

Is there anything I can do to overcome this? Perhaps "refreshing" the cache in some way? ipconfig /flushdns doesn't work.

C# - How To Modify A Web.config File As If It Was A Text File

Feb 28, 2011

by looking at using the XmlDocument and creating elements and attributes and then inserting them into the document. Pretty soon this looked like a massive amount of work for all the elements I have to add.What are the repercussions of treating the config file as one big long text string and doing a replace at certain points to add my entries. Something like this...

private void InsertXMLElement()
StringBuilder webConfig = new StringBuilder();
// get the file into a stringbuilder for manipulation
using (var sr = new StreamReader("C:web.config"))

C# - Save A Binary File In SQL Server As BLOB And Text (or Get The Text From Full-Text Index)?

Mar 26, 2010

Currently we are saving files (PDF, DOC) into the database as BLOB fields. I would like to be able to retrieve the raw text of the file to be able to manipulate it for hit-highlighting and other functions.Does anyone know of a simple way to either parse out the files and save the raw text on save, either via SQL or .net code. I have found that Adobe has a filtdump utility that will convert the PDF to text. Filtdump seems to be a command line tool, and i don't see a way to use a file stream. And what would the extractor be for Office documents and other file types?-or-Is there a way to pull out the raw text from the SQL Full text index, without using 3rd party filters?Note i am trying to build a .net & MSSql solution without having to use a third party tool such as Lucene

Visual Studio :: Saving Aspx File In Source View Mode Takes Too Long?

Jun 30, 2010

saving my aspx file takes too long, it has some nested tables, but it is nothing huge, it has like 50+ overall controls on the form. When I hit the save button, it takes a few minutes and drives cpu crazy, so I am guessing it is doing something in the background.

So, what is the reason, any clues how to speed this up?

I am using Vs.Net 2010 Ultimate
