I gave a public speaking on software product ANTS Profiler 3. The good folks over at Red-Gate http://www.red-gate.com gave me a demo license to demo there product. I must say that I had never heard of red-gate beforehand. I did not know that such tools were available for Dot NET. This tool is very unique in its ability to reduce testing times on Dot NET created application. The application identifies performance bottlenecks in any application on the dot NET framework. The application installs on Visual Studio as a plug-in. The application records the frequency and time it takes for each line of code to be executed, as you are using your application. The application then provides detailed results that will reveal the slowest lines of code and methods, allowing you to quickly identify performance bottlenecks and optimize your code/application accordingly.
Who should use ANTS Profiler?
Developers should use ANTS Profiler throughout the development process, so that they can be sure code is optimized
and will behave as expected. Technical testers also use ANTS Profiler to pin bugs down to a specific line of
code, or to determine scope for optimization.
Visual Studio integration
ANTS Profiler can be accessed directly from VS 2003/2005, allowing you to start profiling your code quicker, by simply clicking on the ANTS
menu item. ANTS Profiler is then launched automatically with the executable already set.
When should I use ANTS Profiler?
Use ANTS Profiler when your application is running slowly, when you think performance can be improved, or if you need
to understand how memory is being used by your application. If your application does not perform as expected, use ANTS
Profiler to help you understand how, and when, each piece of code is being called. Code can almost always be improved
through the use of ANTS Profiler.
ANTS Profiler can run on developer machines or web servers.
