I finally got the entire project running and got the metrics I needed in order to do my presentation next week. I managed to take 15.6 million records and push them into the cache, performed 6.3 million key lookups, and 800k region lookups with tags in just under one hour. All on my laptop!!! This same workload was captured from an hours worth of processing from 64 application servers with 5 database servers. So far, I’m very much impressed. More details of this to follow when I can produce examples for public consumption.
I ran across this nifty Codeplex project the other day which puts a nice graphical interface onto the AppFabric Distributed Cache PowerShell scripts. Now instead of opening up a PS window to get everything started, I simply launch this tool and it starts up the cache for me. It allows you to manage items at the Cluster, Host, Name, and even down to the Region.
