    • 5 Comments
    As I mentioned earlier we were running scalability tests on a Unisys 8-way box as well as the various 1P - 4P configurations. I didn't publish the results at the same time because they didn't make any sense. The "big" 4 way config achieved something on...

    "Concurrent" users

    • 8 Comments
    Very frequently I get requests asking "how many concurrent users does Team Foundation Server support"? I really don't like this question. What is a "concurrent user"? In a stateless request/response web based application, there really is no such...

    • 38 Comments
    I'm keeping my eye out for reasonable "short" blog topics as all of mine seem to be pretty long :) There was a question today on one of our internal aliases about why labels in TFS don't show up in the history display the way they do in SourceSafe. The...
