Sharepoint log files growing out of control

As part of the Beta 2 evaluation process, I’ve seen a couple of reports of customers having problems with Sharepoint log files growing out of control – gigabytes in just a few minutes.  Needless to say, it fills up disks and creates all kinds of havoc.  While I don’t know the root cause, we have… Read more

Performance of VS Beta 2

I’m starting to get very mixed messages about people’s satisfaction with performance in Beta 2.  Clearly performance in Beta 1 was bad.  We knew that.  We did a lot of work in Beta 2 to make it better and I’ve heard a lot of people comment on how much better Beta 2 is.  At the… Read more

Managing your work with TFS and Telerik

Check out Telerik’s new tool for managing work on TFS.  It’s got a task board, iteration planning tools, and some generally cool query/filter capabilities.  They’ve just released a version that works with TFS 2010 Beta 2.  I saw a demo late last week and it looks really good.  And best of all, it’s a free… Read more

It’s probably a bit early yet.  But once you’ve had a change to play with Beta 2 and look at the docs, the doc team here at MS would like some feedback from you so that they know where to focus their remaining work.  They’ve created a survey to help them collect your feedback. Brian… Read more
