Web Farm and Web Gardens Support

This document describes how to make web applications that use WebChartControl, work properly in a clustered web environment (also known as Web Farms or Web Gardens).

In short, web farm and web garden technologies allow you to run a web application on several web servers (web farm), or on the same server but in different processes, each process executed using its own processor (web garden). This is specified by the Internet Information Services (IIS) settings of the server host on which you deploy your web application. By using a clustered environment, you can significantly improve the performance of large web applications.

To use these technologies with your web chart, you should define an appropriate mode via the WebChartControl.BinaryStorageMode property. For the descriptions of the available modes, and for more information on using this technology in XtraCharts, refer to the Binary Storage Configuration document in Common ASP.NET Concepts help.
