Getting Started To use this new functionality, the first thing you need to do is build a Telerik OpenAccess ORM domain model. Once the domain...

    November 20, 2011 Share
    In Q2 2011 we introduced the Profiling and Tuning advisor, which makes it easier than ever for developers using OpenAccess ORM to see what is going on behind the scenes.  In this release we are happy to expand on the profiler by introducing improved UI features, and a new Metrics view.  The new view makes it easy for developers, and system administrators, to keep an eye on the health of an application.  It displays metrics like committed transactions, rollbacks, connection pool health, and second level cache health.  All of these metrics can be displayed with almost no performance impact on the application due...
