  • 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: 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: 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: 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....
  • Blog Post: Orcas Dogfood Upgrade - CPU Utilization

    I think we've got enough data now that we can put a stake in the ground about where we stand on CPU utilization improvements. We've still got a bit more tuning and improvements to make but it's probably within 10% of where it will turn out. We've made less progress investigating the regressions this...
  • Blog Post: March DevDiv Dogfood Statistics

    Time for the monthly installment again :) I've been swamped lately and not able to make progress on my "Managing Quality" series. I'll get back to that shortly. This is the first monthly dogfood statistics update since the upgrade of the DevDiv dogfood server on 3/3. So, it’s going to be a bit longer...
  • Blog Post: Dogfood Server Upgrade - End of Week 1

    The first week of the Orcas Dogfood server upgrade will end today. It's been a fantastic (if hectic) week. After the initial spate of issues we hit Monday, it quieted down pretty quickly. We got the significant issues fixed on Tuesday and have been making small performance patches all week. We're down...
  • Blog Post: DevDiv Dogfood Status Update

    The deployment of Orcas to the DevDiv dogfood server finished ahead of schedule this weekend. We completed the procedure by Saturday night thanks to hard work from the IT team and key people on the TFS team assisting. We spent Sunday shaking out a couple of issues with the system and went live for real...
  • Blog Post: Some Cool Posts

    I've seen some cool posts on our product over the past few days that I wanted to bring to your attention. Jeff published a list of useful links to information on testing with Team System . Ameya published an interesting post on using Visio to visualize Team System reporting data . I also...
  • Blog Post: February DevDiv Dogfood Statistics

    Overall, it's been a pretty uneventful month for the dogfood server. The biggest milestone is that we are now consistently over 1,000 active users on the system. Files & Folders are approaching the 100M mark and should hit it within the next few months for sure. I've added a new statistic this month...
