I was one of the voters for the auto-scaling application block (wasabi) and was evaluating for one of my projects requirement. I have a few queries whose response if received would be very helpful for the inclusion of this application block in our projects.
1. After the installation of the package using NuGet, when I tried to edit the application config of the host (for the wasabi) using the Enterprise library configuration console (installed the latest one from visual studio gallery) and trying to same, always
was getting the following error message (even if I mentioned false for the “Track requests” and “use blob execution lease”):
“The application could not save the configuration information to the configuration file. Please try to save the configuration to a different file.
Error message : Required attribute 'advancedOptions' not found.”
Are the fields under the “advanced options” section mandatory?
2. Can I use the wasabi for tracking and scaling an application running in dev-fabric i.e. the local azure compute emulator? Actually currently we are facing some issue in using our azure account so was trying to use the block for watching an application
running locally in the azure compute emulator. Actually I have this concern because while defining the service model xml I found that the details like subscriptionid, certificatethumbprint , etc to be mentioned in the subscription element are mandatory. If
it is possible to test the wasabi to scaling an application locally then please let me know how to achieve the same, may be through some code/config snippets or any online article or blog.
3. I have installed and made reference to the application block using NuGet. But the issue is every time I need to use the application block in my different projects I have to be online and install the concerned package again and again. Because the installation
of package happens locally to the project to which it is referred. And sometime because of folder structure created by the block, the file/dll name becomes too large.
Waiting for your response.
Thanks in advance,
