1,000,000 files in the dogfood system


Jeff Beehler just checked in another 100,000 files, pushing us over 1,000,000 files.  We now have 1,042,659 files in the dogfood system.  Brian Harry sent out a dogfood statistics update in email today, prior to Jeff’s check-in.  Watch for the latest stats on John Lawrence’s blog.

  1. I’m curious: Is the eventual plan to move *all* development within MS to use Team System?

    If so, do you have any sense of how far from that goal you are at this point? (An equivalent question, I guess, is: exactly how many millions of files *are* there in active projects at MS? :) )

    If not, what are the exceptions and why are their needs not met by Team System?

    Yes, the goal is indeed to eventually move everything over. But that’s going to take more than v1. The issue is mostly one of scale, both the number of files and the number of users. V1 supports a large team (500+ with the right hardware), but there will be other challenges in getting to 5000 users, for example. V2 will address a lot of the scale issues necessary to get there.

    I’m not sure how many millions of files there are, because they are on different servers. It’s a lot, though.

    We’re going to continue expanding the number of users on our dogfood system, as well as load testing the web server (see Brian Harry’s blog for more info on that).
