This was my first time presenting at Techready . Being a part of the performance dev team in WCF, this would be a natural topic to pick up. The audience was great and we were aware of some of the problems they mentioned and hoping to solve them in the upcoming releases of the framework. Wenlong gave a pretty deep insight into the guts of the WCF pumps and throttle’s and I walked through some of the common scenarios we have discussed with customers and some demos on the tools we use and recommend.
Here is Wenlong’s post on Asynchronous Programing with WCF and also has the demo code we used for the presentation. http://blogs.msdn.com/wenlong/archive/2009/02/09/scale-wcf-application-better-with-asynchronous-programming.aspx and a quick link to the demo.
Next time – A whole view of the WCF Pump.
