  • Blog Post: August '11 TFS Power Tools are available!

    Yesterday we released the latest version of the TFS Power Tools that I described here Here are the links: TFS 2010 Power Tools MSSCCI Provider Build Extensions **UPDATE**: Here's a new "short" link to the main VS Power Tools landing page: http://aka.ms/tfpt It's another very nice...
  • Blog Post: Putting TFS on Port 80

    Maarten asked me a couple of weeks ago if it was possible to put TFS on port 80 along with Sharepoint and if so, was there any documentation. I said, yes, I know it's possible because I know we've tested it but I didn't know if there was any documentation. After a little poking around the conclusion...
  • Blog Post: Build service offering from Discount ASP.NET

    A couple of weeks ago Discount ASP.NET released a build service offering to go along with their hosted TFS offering. This makes it possible for you to host even more of your development process in the cloud - a big benefit, particularly for highly distributed teams. Check it out here: http://www.discountasp...
  • Blog Post: Praktik Hosting Updates their Hosted TFS Offering

    One of our relatively long term hosting partners - Praktik Hosting, has just updated their hosting offering based on our TFS 2010 product and licensing changes. The result is a more affordable service with more features. They are also going beyond just TFS and providing an option of licensing Urban Turtle...
  • Blog Post: Dogfooding TFS 2010 in DevDiv

    As you probably know from my blog that dogfooding (using the product ourselves) is a very important part of our development cycle. We like to use the product early and often and make sure we understand what it's going to be like for our customers. This have been a pretty big undertaking for TFS. If you...
  • Blog Post: A dogfooding milestone

    This week we hit a notable milestone on the DevDiv TFS dogfood server – 1,000,000 checkins.  One of the people on our team put together this graph to demonstrate the trend: We’re going to be having a little celebration on Monday to commemorate it. Brian
  • Blog Post: July ‘09 DevDiv Dogfood Statistics

    It’s been about 6 months since I last posted detailed statistics on the DevDiv TFS dogfood server.  Overall it’s been a good 6 months.  Early this year we got the bulk of our TFS 2010 branching/merging/scaling changes deployed to the server and they’ve made a a big difference in the scalability...
  • Blog Post: DevDiv TFS Database Sizes

    Someone asked me the other day how big to expect the relative sizes of TFS databases to be.  At the time all I had time to say was “Over time TfsVersionControl will dwarf everything else”.  This weekend, I finally had a few minutes to sit down and do some analysis.  As with all such things...
  • Blog Post: Microsoft TFS Adoption Update

    It’s been a while now since I have an overall look at the adoption of TFS at Microsoft.  I decided to go ahead and do it this month even though some of the numbers (particularly active users) are a bit skewed by the recent holidays.  Regardless, there’s some good data here.  One big milestone...
  • Blog Post: Jan '09 DevDiv Dogfood Statistics

    It has been a long time since I updated you on DevDiv TFS dogfood usage statistics.  Sorry about that - it was a very busy fall.  The last update was in September so the deltas in the numbers below reflect changes since then.  As you can see usage in most respects continues to grow ...
  • Blog Post: September '08 DevDiv TFS Dogfood Statistics

    Well, I let it happen again :(.  It's been over two months since my last report on this and my blog has gone sadly quiet in general.  As I'd mentioned before, it's been an unbelievably busy summer but I think I'm finally coming out of it.  With luck you'll see quite a few posts this week...
  • Blog Post: July '08 DevDiv TFS Dogfood Statistics

    I missed the June Dogfood statistics - sorry about that.  This report represents the change since my last dogfood report in May.  The big thing that you will observe is that downloads have dropped dramatically (from a peak around ~150,000,000 to ~50,000,000).  The reason for this is that...
  • Blog Post: May '08 DevDiv TFS Dogfood Statistics

    Today seems to be blogging day.  Here's post #3 of 4 or 5 that are coming today.  Sorry for the deluge but it's been a couple of weeks since I blogged. I think we are finally nearing the end of the full scale roll out of TFS to the Developer Division.  Almost everyone working on the next...
  • Blog Post: April '08 DevDiv TFS Dogfood Statistics

    Due to my sabbatical, I missed the March Dogfood statistics.  In my absence, adoption has continued apace.  The team has been very busy making sure the server is behaving well and applying fixes when it is not. Looking at the graphs below, you can see that several of the statistics have really...
  • Blog Post: Feb '08 DevDiv TFS Dogfood Statistics

    If you follow my dogfood statistics, you’ll notice that some of the numbers at the bottom are up quite a bit.  The +200 recent user bump represents the increase in usage as we approach the completion of the roll out of TFS to the entire division.  At this point I'm expecting the roll...
  • Blog Post: December '07 DevDiv Dogfood Statistics

    The massive spike that I've been foreboding for a long while now has started.  In the last month the momentum towards moving the entire division over to TFS has really picked up.  A significant fraction of the branches for the development of the next version of Visual Studio/.NET Framework...
  • Blog Post: November '07 DevDiv Dogfood Statistics

    It's been a while since I wrote about the DevDiv TFS statistics.  Sorry about that, I guess it's just been a really busy summer.  Usage continues to climb steadily and we are just now beginning the rollout to the rest of DevDiv.  The next version of VS/.NET will be built entirely using...
  • Blog Post: Update on Microsoft TFS adoption

    Here's an update on overall TFS adoption at Microsoft. In a bit I expect to blog the latest DevDiv server stats. Overall adoption continues to grow rapidly. We passed some notable milestones this month: We have 1,160 Team Projects in production, passing the 1,000 mark We topped 1 million work items ...
  • Blog Post: August DevDiv Dogfood Statistics

    I think I missed posting dogfood stats last month - sorry about that. It's just been so busy with all of the recent releases going on, it's been difficult to find time to do it. The “big change” in the past couple of months is that the Visual Studio central build lab is really making progress in enabling...
  • Blog Post: Update on adoption of TFS at Microsoft

    Our internal adoption team produced an update on our status this week and I thought I'd share the results with you. We're now up to 21 TFS instances in production, hosting a total of 734 projects about 5,600 users. 2 of those instances are running an Orcas Beta 2 build. 3 are running a very early build...
  • Blog Post: June DevDiv Dogfood Statistics

    Orcas Beta 2 has been deployed on our dogfood server for about a month now and has been running quite well with very few patches. We've been focusing primarily on cleaning up the event log and making sure we fix any bugs generating event log entries, making appropriate eventlog entries clear and actionable...
  • Blog Post: May DevDiv Dogfood Statistics

    It's been a pretty uneventful month on our Dogfood server. I almost decided not to post about it but I figured what the heck. The most exciting thing is that we have our Orcas Beta 2 dogfood server upgrade happening this weekend. This should be an indication to you that we think our Orcas Beta 2 server...
  • Blog Post: Dogfood I/O Analysis

    I've been falling so far behind on everything I'm supposed to do I just can't stand it. Today is my day to try to catch up on blogging. I promised I'd follow up on the dogfood I/O analysis from the Orcas upgrade. Well, I got the results a week or two ago and I just can't find anything particularly useful...
  • Blog Post: April DevDiv Dogfood Statistics

    It’s now been over a month since the DevDiv dogfood server upgrade to Orcas bits. We’ve continued to poke and prod at the server and make patches as we identify issues. The rate has slowed down from that first hectic week of several patches a day to about 1 a week or so now. Overall performance is much...
  • Blog Post: Orcas Dogfood Upgrade - I/O Statistics Delayed

    We got some I/O statistics on Friday night. Unfortunately it was not what I was looking for. The version control drives were omitted from the collection and there was much less sproc analysis than I expected. The ops team is going back to replan what analysis they are going to do and will try again....
