The Design of Software (CLOSED)

A public forum for discussing the design of software, from the user interface to the code architecture. Now closed.

The "Design of Software" discussion group has been merged with the main Joel on Software discussion group.

The archives will remain online indefinitely.

Automated bits...

Was reading the FogBUGZ forum yesterday and it seems that the file heartbeat.asp (or something similar) runs ever 15 seconds or so.


is the page added to task scheduler? or is the page just left open and it contains a META-REFRESH?

any ideas?

FogBugz comes with a small Windows service that hits that URL on a regular basis. It's not every 15 seconds... it's a sort of complicated calculation based on whether there's more work to be done, designed so that all the work gets done as quickly as possible without ever using more than 50% of the CPU resources.
