Web Performance & Load Tests

Could not access the load test results repository: The load test results repository is out of space. Allocate more space to the repository (if possible), or delete results of the older load test runs.

by XDK 8. May 2013 09:46

Problem

The load test rig database was configured on SQL Server 2008 express edition which can hold maximum database size of 4 gb

Workaround

Note: Always test the blog script on your test environment before executing on production environment

This problem can be overcame by removing historical results

-- Start Script

-- This script deletes all load test run older than two weeks
-- To change the timeframe, change the number of days from 14 to the desired number
 
USE LoadTest
DECLARE @LoadTestRunId int
DECLARE OldLoadTestsCursor CURSOR FOR
    SELECT LoadTestRunId FROM LoadTestRun WHERE datediff(dd, StartTime, getdate()) > 14
 
OPEN OldLoadTestsCursor
FETCH NEXT FROM OldLoadTestsCursor INTO @LoadTestRunId
 
WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS = 0
BEGIN
    EXEC Prc_DeleteLoadTestRun @LoadTestRunId
    FETCH NEXT FROM OldLoadTestsCursor INTO @LoadTestRunId
END
 
CLOSE OldLoadTestsCursor
DEALLOCATE OldLoadTestsCursor

-- End Script

Solution

Configure the rig to other editions of SQL server.

TF262600: This SharePoint site was created using a site definition that requires data from Team Foundation Server. However, the site is not currently associated with data for a team project

by XDK 4. February 2013 14:55

Errors:

TF262600: This SharePoint site was created using a site definition that requires data from Team Foundation Server. However, the site is not currently associated with data for a team project. To ensure that this site functions correctly, you must configure a team project to refer data for that project to this site. For more information, see this topic on the Microsoft Web site: How to: Add a Team Project Portal.

This site doesn't have a default Team Project. You can explicitly select a specific Team Project.
This web part is not configured properly. Click here to configure web part in tool pane.

Explanation

This issue was caused by missing permissions for the [TEAM FOUNDATION]\SharePoint Web Application Services group to the team project. I get into the issue whenever I detach and attach the same collection (side by side) to different TFS App tiers for testing/R&D

Soultion

1) Add and grant READ permission for [TEAM FOUNDATION]\SharePoint Web Application Services group to the affected team projects.

2) use tfsredirect.aspx to refresh the cache

http://SharePointServer/sites/CollectionName/TeamProjectName/
_layouts/TfsRedirect.aspx?tf:type=webaccess&tf:test=1&tf:clearcache=1

Note : This page should not return any errors and the value for TeamFoundation.Temp.LastRefreshDate should include the current date.

3) Repair the connections between TFS and SP

  • Open the Team Foundation Server Administration Console
  • Expand the Application Tier in question (the one hosting the Team Project Collection and Team Project with the problem)
  • Highlight the SharePoint Web Applications node.
  • In the SharePoint Web Applications list, highlight the appropriate connection and then click "Repair Connection"
