Working with lac users in Sitecore


Recently we were working on a Project which includes lac of users. Our application includes Login/Logout Mechanism – which is the base for any Ecommerce Application. Yes it is an Ecommerce Application.


Initially while developing a Project we were having few records around 2000. So Sitecore was performing pretty well. But as we went Live with 300000 records. Sitecore went down. It took roughly 4+ Minutes to GetAllUsers. And 5 Minutes to process all the records, compare Custom Property which was needed in our case. So it was taking around 10 Minutes to Login. It was very critical time for us to get the things done as soon as possible. With the help of Sitecore – We came to know that only best approach in this case is to go with SQL Query. And Yes – Stored Procedure did our Job. We created a Stored Procedure that does the processing which we were doing via Code. So that reduced time to less than 6 Seconds – Hurray! (Refer: for more details on this.)
Sitecore internally uses the Membership Object of Asp.Net.

My First Sitecore Module – Google Product Feed

Accurately describing items using these attributes allows users to search and find your items more easily.
