The Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) framework is being used in almost all .NET development platforms: Windows clients, web browsers, Windows Phone, Server side applications, and Windows Azure; but everyone using WCF asks the same question - how do I know if my service is working properly?

In this session we will see how to monitor your services, and how to tune it for better performance and scalability.

You will learn:

  • Monitoring WCF services with ETW, Performance Counters, and log files
  • Understanding throttling in WCF
  • Setting the instancing and concurrency of your services
