Updating and Monitoring the Team Foundation Server Data Warehouse
As an exercise as well as to provide me with a tool to use on my desktop to force processing without opening up SQL Management Studio or logging into the box so that I can execute the web service manually, I wrote a simple tray app tool to provide quick and easy access to this functionality of Team Foundation Server.
It's pretty simple. Just set the proper settings in the config file and execute the executable. It will put an icon in your tray that you can right click and tell to process. The colors and tooltips of the icon will change depending on the status of the warehouse.
