Random Link Roundup–1/23/2015

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Here’s the first official roundup of 2015!  In a few more years, perhaps you’ll be able to enjoy my roundups in pure holographic beauty!   On the .NET front… Attribute routing is getting better in MVC 6! You can now use Application Insights with Azure Websites.  I actually thought you could already do this, so cool! I mainly use Entity Framework these days, but there are still areas where NHibernate is surprisingly superior.  Like having support for Hierarchy IDs.
Need Eval for C#, but can't wait for Rosyln?  C# Expression Evaluator may work for you.   And in the HTML/CSS world… Codrops has some very slick input effects you can use. Hover.css is like Animate.css, except focused just on hover effects.  Lining.js allows you to do nth-line CSS selectors.   There's some GREAT stuff coming in CSS Selectors 4.  Nothing is finalized yet, so it’s a bit of a tease, but at least it will be here someday! ...(Read whole news on source site)

Excerpts from the RavenDB Performance team report: Expensive headers, and cache effects

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
This ended up being a pretty obvious, in retrospect. We noticed in the profiler that we spent a lot of time working with headers. Now, RavenDB is using REST as the communication layer, so it is doing a lot with that, but we should be able to do better. Then Tal dug into the actual implementation and found:
public string GetHeader(string key) { if (InnerHeaders.Contains(key) == false) return null; return InnerHeaders.GetValues(key).FirstOrDefault(); } public List GetHeaders(string key) { if (InnerHeaders.Contains(key) == false) return null; return InnerHeaders.GetValues(key).ToList(); } public HttpHeaders InnerHeaders { get { var headers = new Headers(); foreach (var header in InnerRequest.Headers) { if (header.Value.Count() == 1) headers.Add(header.Key, header.Value.First()); else headers.Add(header.Key, header.Value.ToList()); } if (InnerRequest.Content == null) return headers; foreach (var header in InnerRequest.Content.Headers) { if (header.Value.Count()
== 1) headers.Add(header.Key, header.Value.First()); else headers.Add(header.Key, header.Value.ToList()); } return headers; } }
To be fair, this implementation was created very early on, and no one ever actually spent any time looking it since (why would they? it worked, and quite well). The problem is the number of copies that we have, and the fact that to pull a since header, we have to copy all the headers, sometimes multiple times. We replaced this with code that wasn’t doing stupid stuff, and we couldn’t even find the cost of working with headers in the profiler any longer. But that brings up a really interesting question. How could we not know...(Read whole news on source site)
