Anyone who have had to write software to send high volumes of emails, upload and unknown number of files to a server, perform distributed calculations, update stock tickers or even create some sort of load balancing service would know the difficulty in making it fast and reliable or even getting it work. They would know the difficulty in using cryptic components that are hard to understand and provide complex interfaces when all you want is to focus on getting the job done instead of tussling with their complexities. Pipeline.NET is a high performance .NET component that fills this gap by providing a reliable and easy to use API.

Frequently asked questions

  1. Exactly what does it do?

    Pipeline.NET allows the scheduling of an unlimited number of tasks while limiting the number of tasks that are running at any one time.

  2. What is the benefit of this?

    Having an easy way to fire and forget your tasks is definitely a huge plus but executing an unlimited number of tasks simultaneously may be counter-productive to
    performance. While running tasks that are not time sensitive this may not be a problem
    however if you wish real-time performance then it is best to limit the number of tasks

    to the numbers of processor cores available.

  3. Is it easy to configure?

    To get started using the PipelineScheduler simply create a new instance using all the default parameters which are automatically
    customised for the device that’s running the software. new PipelineScheduler();. See all the
    configuration parameters.

  4. Can I change the scheduling algorithm?

    Pipeline.NET is built with a pluggable scheduling algorithm
    architecture allowing custom algorithms to be used very easily. Pipeline.NET comes with
    both First Come First Serve (FCFS) and Priority scheduling with FCFS used
    as the default.

  5. How does it work?

  6. What .NET applications will it work with?

    Pipeline.NET can be used in all variants of .NET applications as long as
    they are using the .NET Framework 3.5 or above including web applications and
    XML & WCF services, windows services, WPF & WinForm applications, etc.

    See mobile compatibility report.

  7. Does it work in the background?

    Pipeline.NET runs all tasks on background threads but provides
    the configuration option to choose either ThreadPool or non-ThreadPool

  8. Is their any API documentation?

    Yes. The API documentation can be found here.


  9. Are there “get started” examples?

    All the API documentation provide examples on how to
    use the component. See the first example here.
