Caching in MVC 5 Asp.net

Hello Everyone,

In this blog I want to share advantages of caching in MVC. Its a very important to know how caching is used in MVC websites.
By using Caching, we can store content at client’s browser and/or server. We can easily access these data and content when required.Caching data or content provides following advantages:

  • Minimize Request To Hosting Server
  • Minimize Request To Database Server
  • Reduce Network Traffic
  • Save Time and resources
  • Above advantages helps in improving the performance of MVC Website.

There are two types of method for caching available in MVC.

  • Page Output Caching
  • Application Caching

In this blog we will discuss on Page Output Caching.We can achieve this by
adding OutputCache attribute to either an individual controller action or an
entire controller class.

OutputCache Filter Parameter :

Parameter Type Description
CacheProfile string It is the name of the output cache profile which is defined with in tag of Web.config.

Example: Creating Cache profile in cache.
<caching>
<outputCacheSettings>
<outputCacheProfiles>
<add name=”Test1″ duration=”30″ varyByParam=”none”/>
</outputCacheProfiles>
</outputCacheSettings>
</caching>

And this cache profile is used in the action method as shown below.

[OutputCache(CacheProfile = “Test1”)]
public ActionResult Index()
{
return View();
}

Parameter Type Description
Duration int It specify the duration in sec to cache the content.

Example : The output of the Index() action is cached for 30 seconds.

using System.Web.Mvc;

namespace MvcApplication1.Controllers

{
public class HomeController : Controller
{
[OutputCache(Duration=30, VaryByParam=”none”)]
public ActionResult Index()
{
return View();
}
}
}

Note: If you will not defined the duration, it will cached it for
by default cache duration 60 sec.

 

Parameter Type Description
Location OutputCacheLocation It specify the location of the output to be cached.
Location property can be any one of the following values:

  • Any: It is default location attribute.The cache can be located on the browser client , on a proxy server participating in the request, or on the server .
  • Client: Store content on the browser
  • Downstream: The output cache can be stored in any HTTP 1.1 cache-capable devices other than the origin server.
  • Server:Store content on the Server
  • None: The output cache is disabled for the requested page.
  • ServerAndClient:Store content on both browser and server

Example: Cache stored at client browser.
using System.Web.Mvc;
using System.Web.UI;

namespace MvcApplication1.Controllers
{
public class UserController : Controller
{
[OutputCache(Duration=3600, VaryByParam=”none”, Location=OutputCacheLocation.Client)]
public ActionResult Index()
{
return View();
}

}
}

Parameter Type Description
VaryByParam  string This property enables us to create different cached versions of
the very same content when a form parameter or query
string parameter varies.
If not specified, the default value is none.
VaryByParam=”none” specifies that caching doesn’t depend
on anything.
VaryByCustom  string This is used for custom output cache requirements
VaryByHeader  string This specify list of HTTP header names that are used tovary the cache content.

Example:

public class TestController : Controller

{

[OutputCache(Duration = 30, VaryByParam = “none”)]
public ActionResult Index()
{
return View();
}
[OutputCache(Duration = 30, VaryByParam = “id”)]
public ActionResult Index1()
{
return View();
}
}

Parameter Type Description
NoStore bool It enable/disable where to use HTTP Cache-Control.
This is used only to protect very sensitive data.
SqlDependency string It specify the database and table name pairs on which
the cache content depends on. The cached data will expire
automatically when the data changes in the database.

I hope this will help you.Your valuable feedback and comments are important for me.

Connect to On Premises SharePoint 2013 site using Powershell on your local computer

Hi Friends,

Recently I had a word with Ryan Yates on our yammer group and found a interesting Powershell script. Ryan created a powershell script named “Client-side SharePoint PowerShell”is avaiable on Codeplex https://sharepointpowershell.codeplex.com. We can use this script to connect to on-premises SharePoint site using Powershell and execute queries on same. I found it pretty intreseting so I tried same. Below are couple of requirement to use this powershell script.

  1. Windows powershell 3.0
  2. Copy 15 folder from any sharepoint server(path C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions) to local client machine at same location.
  3. Client user have atleast read permission on target URL.
  4. Client system should be part of same domain.

If above requirement are met, lets get connect to remote SharePoint server. We need to download “Client-side SharePoint PowerShell” from codeplex site and extract it to a folder(e.g. c:\inder). Then Open Windows Powershell(Run as Admin) and browse(cd C:\Inder\sharepointpowershell-42493) to Powershell folder as shown below:
234

  1. Now we We need to load “Client-side SharePoint PowerShell” module using “Import-Module .\spps.psm1” command
    235
    Note: You might have to select “R” multiple times to load all the scripts

  2. Finally we need to connect to SharePoint site using command “Initialize-SPPS -siteURL http://siteurl”
    236

  3. If we dont see any error message, it means our SharePoint is now conenct and ready to use.
    Below are arguments you can use in this powershell

Upload Sandboxed WSP to the site

Add-Solution -path “$exampledir\Solutions\solution.wsp”

Activate the WSP

Install-Solution -solutionName “AESBTwitterWebpart.wsp”

Create a subsite

Add-Subsite -title “Subsite” -webTemplate “STS#0” -description “Description…” -url “subsite” -language 1033 -useSamePermissionsAsParentSite $true

Go to the subsite

Open-Subsite -relativeUrl “/subsite”

Enable the publishing feature

Enable-Feature -featureId “94c94ca6-b32f-4da9-a9e3-1f3d343d7ecb” -force $false -featureDefinitionScope “Web”

Create document library on the subsite

Add-DocumentLibrary -listTitle “Testdoclib”

Copy testfiles to this document library

Copy-Folder “$exampledir\Subsite\Testdoclib” “Testdoclib” $false

Go back to the root site

Open-Rootsite

copy contents of local folders to SharePoint

$stylelibdir = “$exampledir\Style Library”
$styleliburl = “/Style Library”

Set master page

$masterFile = “seattle_custom.master”
Set-CustomMasterPage $masterFile

Create news list

$newsListName = “News”
$newsItemsCSV = “$exampledir\News\items.csv”

Add news web part to the page

Add-Webpart “/Pages/default.aspx” “Header” 0 $webpartXml

Create SharePoint Groups

Add-Group -name “Example Group”

#roleTypes are Guest, Reader, Contributor, WebDesigner, Administrator, Editor

Web

Set-WebPermissions -groupname “Example Group” -roleType “Reader”

Pages lib

Set-ListPermissions -groupname “Example Group” -listname “Pages” -roleType “Reader”

News list

Set-ListPermissions -groupname “Example Group” -listname “News” -roleType “Reader”

Hope this will help you all and help you save time.

Note: If you get error while loading the SharePoint site, make sure you have properly copied 15 hive folder and you are running Windows powershell as admin

We have opened the 10000 port because we are going to install “webmin” to mamage bacula using GUI

 Bacula has been successfully installed

Now we are rebooting the server & checking it’s working fine or not

Type “bconsole “ if you will get ”*” then your configuration is correct

[root@Bacula ~]# bconsole

Type exit to console

 

Now installing webmin to manage bacula

 # wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/webadmin/files/webmin/1.660/webmin-1.660-1.noarch.rpm

# rpm -Uvh webmin-1.660-1.noarch.rpm

# chkconfig webmin on

 

Access webmin “//http://server-ip-address:10000″ or “http://domain-name:10000/”.

Webmin

Click on system –> Bacula backup system–> module configuration–>Next

Webmin_module

Select database type “MYSQL” & enter your password

PSconfig wizard fails after you install any update on SharePoint server

Hi Friends,

Recently I faced issue while updating SharePoint 2010 sp1 on servers. Installation of SharePoint 2013 SP1 didn’t caused any issue but when I try to run PSconfig wizard to update SharePoint databases, site features, etc, it stopped with below errors.

 

Environment : SharePoint 2010 standalone environment

 

ULS Logs:
UpdatedConcurrencyException: The object SPAdministrationWebApplication was updated by another user. Determine if these changes will conflict, resolve any differences, and reapply the second change. This error may also indicate a programming error caused by obtaining two copies of the same object in a single thread.

at Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.TaskThread.ExecuteTask()

 

Troubleshooting steps tried:
To resolve the issue I tried to run below command, but it did not help:
PSCONFIG -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -wait -force

Confirmed that there was no password change in SharePoint farm, No issues related to content databases. Checked permission for the farm account on SQL server and SharePoint server.

User Account Control (UAC) was enabled on server to disabled it so disabled it. Tried to reboot SharePoint machine and disabled Firewall.

 

Resolution:
After some research I found that configuration database was locked which caused this issue. To resolve the issue I executed below command in powershell:

stsadm -o setproperty -pn “command-line-upgrade-running” -pv No

Then tired to refresh sharePoint by running below command:
IISreset
net stop sptimerv4
net start sptimerv4

Now when I try to run PSconfig wizard from PowerShell, it completed without any issue:
PSCONFIG -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -wait -force

Hope this will help you in case you face any similar issue.

If you have SharePoint 2010, you need to know SharePoint build and plan upgrade to SharePoint 2013 as Microsoft support will end soon

Hi Friends,

I hope you are aware but incase if you don’t know, Microsoft does not provide complete support if you dont have your SharePoint 2010 build higher then SP1 (14.0.6029.1000).

After 13th October 2015, SharePoint 2010 main stream support will end, so you need to plan upgrade of your SharePoint to 2013.

The support of SharePoint 2010 versions between RTM(14.0.4762.1000) and SP1 (14.0.6029.1000) is ended as you can double check in the following link:

http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/?p1=14944

Support for Service pack 1 was stopped on 14th October 2014. That is because the SP1 was released 4 year ago and ,as you may know, the Office Business Group Service Pack policy states “When a new service pack is released, Microsoft will provide 12 months of support for the previous service pack”. More info in the following link:

http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/#tab2

Then, the new support cases opened regarding issues between RTM and SP1 versions will be treated as “limited support”. That means that you will face the following limitations:

  1. Limited break/fix support incidents will be provided through Microsoft Customer Service and Support; and through Microsoft’s managed support offerings (such as Premier Support).
  2. There will be no option to engage Microsoft’s product development resources, and technical workarounds may be limited or not possible.
  3. If the support incident requires escalation to development for further guidance, requires a hotfix, or requires a security update, customers will be asked to upgrade to a supported service pack.

As far as I know soon SharePoint SP2 will be the minimum requirement to get support from Microsoft.

Hope this will help you.

“Webmin” installation on Linux syste

Hello Everyone,

Today we are installing “webmin”

Being as a windows administrator working on Linux system it’s quite difficult to understand black screen. so you can do most of your work using webmin, it’s PHP based GUI application so can configure your linux system, can take system backup, manage your postfix server & do more.

“What is webmin”

Webmin is a web-based system configuration tool for Unix-like systems, although recent versions can also be installed and run on Windows.[4] With it, it is possible to configure operating system internals, such as users, disk quotas, services or configuration files, as well as modify and control open source apps, such as the Apache HTTP Server, PHP or MySQL.[5][6]

Webmin is largely based on Perl, running as its own process and web server. It defaults to TCP port 10000 for communicating, and can be configured to use SSL if OpenSSL is installed with additional required Perl Modules.

It is built around modules, which have an interface to the configuration files and the Webmin server. This makes it easy to add new functionality. Due to Webmin’s modular design, it is possible for anyone who is interested to write plugins for desktop configuration.

Webmin also allows for controlling many machines through a single interface, or seamless login on other webmin hosts on the same subnet or LAN.

ASP .NET MVC Life Cycle

Hello Everyone,

In this blog we will discuss life cycle for ASP.NET MVC. Before starting with MVC, it’s a very important to know that how does your request process.

mvclifecycle

In above figure I tried to show how MVC application process. Your browser sends and receive request in form of HTTP Request and HTTP Response respectively. Routing is a process in which it analyzes the request and invokes an Action of the appropriate Controller. Action calls appropriate method of the model.The Model communicates with the data source (e.g. database or API). Once the Model completes its operation it returns data to the Controller which then loads the appropriate View. The View executes presentation logic using the supplied data. In the end, an HTTP response is returned to the browser.This is just a quick view of MVC life-cycle.

Let’s see details view of MVC life cycle.

This is performed by following steps.

  • Receive first request for the application: An MVC application contains only one Route Table. The Route Table maps particular URLs to particular controllers. Check below code of Global.asax: Routes objects are add to  RouteTable object when application  starts first.The Application_Start() method is invokes only once when the very first page is requested.
    public class MvcApplication : System.Web.HttpApplication
    {
    public static void RegisterGlobalFilters(GlobalFilterCollection filters)
    {
    filters.Add(new HandleErrorAttribute());
    }

    public static void RegisterRoutes(RouteCollection routes)
    {
    routes.IgnoreRoute(“{resource}.axd/{*pathInfo}”);
    routes.MapRoute(
    “Default”, // Route name
    “{controller}/{action}/{id}”, // URL with parameters
    new { controller = “Home”, action = “Index”, id = UrlParameter.Optional } // Parameter defaults
    );
    }

    protected void Application_Start()
    {
    AreaRegistration.RegisterAllAreas();
    RegisterGlobalFilters(GlobalFilters.Filters);
    RegisterRoutes(RouteTable.Routes);
    }
    }
  • Perform routing : When we make a request in MVC, UrlRoutingModule reads these request to create a RequestContext object.When requested URL found in RouteTable, the Routing engine forwards the request to the corresponding IRouteHandler for that request. The default one calls the MvcHandler. The routing engine returns a 404 HTTP status code against that request if the URL patterns is not found in the Route Table.
  • Create MVC request handler: MVC handler implements IHttpHandler interface and further process the request by using ProcessRequest method.When ProcessRequest() is called on the MvcHandler object created, a new controller is created, as show in below code.                                             
  • Create and Execute controller: The controller is created from a ControllerFactory. This is an extensibility point since you can create your own ControllerFactory. The default ControllerFactory is named, appropriately enough, DefaultControllerFactory.The RequestContext and the name of the controller are passed to the ControllerFactory. CreateController() method to get a particular controller. Next, a ControllerContext object is constructed from the RequestContext and the controller. Finally, the Execute() method is called on the controller class. The ControllerContext is passed to the Execute() method when the Execute() method is called. For reference check below code.                                                                                        
    virtual void ProcessRequest(HttpContextBase httpContext)
    {
    SecurityUtil.ProcessInApplicationTrust(delegate {
    IController controller;
    IControllerFactory factory;
    this.ProcessRequestInit(httpContext, out controller, out factory);
    try
    {
    controller.Execute(this.RequestContext);
    }
    finally
    {
    factory.ReleaseController(controller);
    }
    });
    }

  • Invoke action:The Execute() method finds a action of the controller to execute. Controller class can be created by us and Execute() method finds one of the methods that we write into the controller class and executes it.
  • Execute result: Action method of controller  receives the user input data, process these data and returns result. The built-in result types can be ViewResult, RedirectToRouteResultRedirectResultContentResult, JsonResult, FileResult, and EmptyResult.

Installation of OTRS 2.4.7 & up gradation to OTRS 4

Hello Everyone,

Today we are doing installation & up gradation of OTRS 2.4.7 to OTRS 4

so lets get started

What is the OTRS

OTRS, an initialism for Open-source Ticket Request System, is a free and open-source trouble ticket system software package that a company, organization, or other entity can use to assign tickets to incoming queries and track further communications about them

Lets install OTRS 2.4.7

My environment : centos 6.6 with 1GB RAM ( not really require)

After installing Centos you have to update the OS first

command

yum update

install wget

yum install wget

Adding EPEL Repository to RHEL / CentOS / Scientific Linux 6.x

wget http://epel.mirror.net.in/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm

rpm -Uvh epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm

yum install yum-priorities –y

now you have to edit centos base repo

vi /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo

Change the priority for [base], [updates], [extras]: priority=1.

baserepo

cd /tmp

wget http://mirror.de.leaseweb.net/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm

rpm –import https://fedoraproject.org/static/0608B895.txt

rpm -i epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm

now edit epel repo

vi /etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo   to   priority=10

epelrepo

Deactivate SELINUX

Vi /etc/sysconfig/selinux

SElinux

SELINUX=disabled

Reboot

Installing Apache webserver

yum install httpd –y

service httpd start

chkconfig httpd on

 

installing MySQL DB

yum install mysql-server –y

 

Set Mysql caching

vi /etc/my.cnf

add below lines

 

max_allowed_packet=500M

MySQL 4.x has query caching available.

Enable it for vast improvement and it may be all you need to tweak.

query_cache_type=1

query_cache_limit=1M

query_cache_size=32M

mysql

service mysqld start

chkconfig mysqld on

Update on SharePoint server 2016 release date

Today big news coming from Microsoft is release date of SharePoint 2016

 

Finally, Microsoft announced the most awaited release dates of on-premises SharePoint 2016.
Microsoft Blog site “SharePoint Server 2016 update” says that the next version of SharePoint Server 2016 has advanced content management, team collaboration, user experiences across devices, and how the cloud can be blended into existing on-premises scenarios in new and compelling ways.

 

Major focused areas for development of SharePoint Server 2016 were to deliver enhancements and new capabilities in three major areas:
1. New user experiences
2. Cloud-inspired infrastructure with Hybrid at the core
3. People-centric compliance

 

I find the most interesting comment to be “People-Centric File Storage and Collaboration”. I take this to suggest a move to storing the majority of files in OD4B rather than team sites and promote people to use it. Now that Microsoft owns Yammer, I assume Yammer will be tightly integrated with SharePoint and soon may disappear just like Fast search.

 

Now most awaited SharePoint Server 2016 RTM will be available to customers in Q2 CY 2016 but a Public Beta would be available in Q4 CY 2015.

 

Another good news is that if your company is interested in providing feedback on early versions of SharePoint 2016, Microsoft can invite you to nominate them for the Technology Adoption Program (TAP). Joining the on-premises TAP Program provides companies with a number of advantages, such as providing input and feedback for future releases of SharePoint, Project Server, and/or Exchange Server; developing a close relationship with the Product Teams; and receiving pre-release information about SharePoint, Project Server and Exchange.

To apply for TAP you need to visit
