Tpl Dataflow walkthrough – Part 5

Saturday, January 28, 2012

Tpl Dataflow walkthrough - Part 5 this post is a complete walkthrough of a web crawler sample that was build purely by using Tpl Dataflow. it was built on .NET 4.5 / C# 5 (on a virtual machine using VS 11). I will analyze each part of this sample, both by discussing the Dataflow blocks and the patterns in used. the sample code is available in here (it is a VS 11 project). during the walkthrough you will see the following Tpl Dataflow blocks: TransformBlock ...

Monday, December 19, 2011

Tpl Dataflow (IDataflowBlock ) - Part 5 the previous post discus the concept ITargetBlock and ISourceBlock, which is the TDF consumer/Producer contract. you can find all the post in this series under the TDF tag. this post focus on the IDataflowBlock contract which is the life-time management contract for all data-flow's blocks. the IDataflowBlock define single property and 2 methods: Code Snippet public interface IDataflowBlock {     Task Completion { get; }       void Complete();     void Fault(Exception exception); } ...

Tpl Dataflow (ISourceBlock) – Part 3

Saturday, December 10, 2011

Tpl Dataflow (ISourceBlock) - Part 3 the previous post discus the concept ITargetBlock which is the TDF consumer contract. this post will focus on the source block which is the producer contract. as mention in previous post, sources and targets engage in a protocol for transferring messages between them. Source Block: the source block main responsibility is to produce (or manipulate) data which will be consume by the target. as we learn in previous post the target may consume the data either directly (push) or indirectly (pull)....

Tpl Dataflow – Part 1

Tuesday, August 2, 2011

Tpl Dataflow - Part 1 this post is the first of post series which will focus on the new Tpl Dataflow library (TDF).   TDF goal is to address high-throughput / low-latency flow scenario of complex computing / IO intensive / immense traffic.   The library is using a few basic buffering and message base pattern in order to enable basic block which can be compose together into full scale scenario. each building block construct as agent which have internal buffer and execution management....
