Profiles .NET code performance alongside database calls and shows which HTTP request triggered each piece of code
Red Gate Software has released ANTS Performance Profiler 7.3, the first profiler to tie together code performance, database performance, and HTTP requests.
In a single view, the tool allows ASP.NET developers to relate poor performance in their application to specific lines of code and database requests, and check which of the two is causing the problem.
"Developers usually have to jump between profilers to see everything that's happening in an ASP.NET application," says Elizabeth Ayer, Product Manager at Red Gate.
"ANTS Performance Profiler 7.3 puts a stop to that. You get everything in one place, making it much simpler and quicker to diagnose and fix problems."
Grouping .NET code and database calls by HTTP request provides a picture of everything that happens in the code when a specific activity, such as a search, takes place in an application.
The profiler provides hit counts and timings for each piece of code and database call, so users can see where most time is being spent, and which areas of their application may need optimization.
The ability to see in one view how database queries are called from your .NET code is a unique feature among .NET profilers. ANTS Performance Profiler currently supports local, remote, and cloud-based SQL Server and Oracle databases.
"It's an excellent piece of engineering. I was amazed to see how easily we were able to optimize messaging speed from 1200 messages per second to 5700," says Pushpraj Rahul, a user of the Early Access Program.
"As a long time user, I've integrated the profiler into my entire development process. It has truly helped us write better performing applications from the beginning. The recent release with exposure to SQL statements makes that even more true," says Mitchel Sellers, a Microsoft C# MVP and CEO of IowaComputerGurus.
