[Administração] Autogrowth

Quando o arquivo de um banco SQL Server atinge o limite do seu tamanho, o recurso autogrowth (auto-crescimento) pode aumentar o tamanho do arquivo automaticamente, isso evita que operações DML e DDL falhem por falta de espaço no arquivo; logo, é uma boa prática manter o autogrowth habilitado. Quando um arquivo chega ao limite do tamanho…


vswhere Available

After feedback on the VSSetup PowerShell module to query Visual Studio 2017 and related products, I’m pleased to say that a native, single-file executable is available on GitHub: vswhere.

Configuring Service Fabric security hardened cluster (ALB and ILB)

Today, the default Service Fabric configuration exposes the ports 19080 and 19000 publicly. Those ports are usually protected by certificate-based security or AAD, but it’s definitely a good idea to hide those ports from the Internet…

Remediate Multi-tenancy Port Collision

Many apps (legacy and modern) provide service interfaces on TCP ports. Many of these service interfaces expect to reside on a well-known port, for example HTTP (80) and HTTPS(443). The current implementation of Windows Containers employs a port mapping mechanism to expose ports running on the container to access from outside the container, and any other access from the  network to…
