Strangest support calls for RavenDB

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
We have a support hotline for RavenDB, and usually we get people that give us “good” problems to solve. And then we have the people who… don’t. The following are a few of the strangest issues from the past month or so. OutOfMemoryException is thrown when running RavenDB in 32 bits mode, and documents of size of 50-70MB size are used. Solution – When running in 32 bits mode, RavenDB only have 2GB of virtual memory to work with, and that is really not enough to do much. There is no reason today for any server app to
run in 32bits mode. Also, a 70MB document?! Seriously! Very slow startup time for RavenDB when the number of indexes approaches 20,000. Solution – That isn’t a typo, honest. We had a customer that sent us a database that had 19,273 indexes in it. When they restarted the database, we had to load all of those indexes, and that took a… while. And no, those weren’t dynamic indexes, they were static indexes that (I hope, at least) were probably generate by a tool. Index creation can take a long time when the number of map indexes in a...(Read whole news on source site)

Prettifying a JSON String in .NET

Here’s a quick and dirty tip if you’re dealing with JSON strings that you at times need to display for debugging or simply seeing a quick view of data represented. It may be that you have an application that captures HTTP responses that contain and you need to actually decipher the JSON that was sent to you, or you’re creating a quick and dirty admin form where you just want to dump some settings information into a screen. As is usually the case, JSON.NET makes JSON manipulations super easy – in fact it’s a single line of code:string jsonFormatted =
JValue.Parse(json).ToString(Formatting.Indented); Here’s how you can test this out:[TestMethod] public void PrettifyJsonStringTest() { var test = new { name = "rick", company = "Westwind", entered = DateTime.UtcNow }; string json = JsonConvert.SerializeObject(test); Console.WriteLine(json); // single line JSON string string jsonFormatted = JValue.Parse(json).ToString(Formatting.Indented); ...(Read whole news on source site)
