Revisiting ANTS Performance Profiler 7.4
Last year, I did a small review on the ANTS Performance Profiler 6.3, now that it’s a year later and a major version number higher, I thought I’d revisit the review and revise my last post. This post will take the same examples as the original post and update them to show what’s new in version 7.4 of the profiler. Background A performance profiler’s main job is to keep track of how much time is typically spent in each unit of code. This helps when we have a program that is not running at the performance ......

Review: A Quick Look at Reflector
I, like many, was disappointed when I heard that Reflector 7 was not free, and perhaps that’s why I waited so long to try it and just kept using my version 6 (which continues to be free). But though I resisted for so long, I longed for the better features that were being developed, and began to wonder if I should upgrade. Thus, I began to look into the features being offered in Reflector 7.5 to see what was new. Multiple Editions Reflector 7.5 comes in three flavors, each building on the features ......

Review – InRule: A Business Rules Management System for .NET
I don’t usually do a product profile unless I either really like the product and use it myself, or I’m genuinely curious about the product and what it can do for me. While I haven’t used InRule before, it does fit the latter of those criteria because of my interest in similar products I have used in the past. A Quick Intro to my Life in Rules… Flash back to my college years (when 5.25” floppies were king) and you’d see a young guy in an Artificial Intelligence class learning about a Knowledge Based ......

ANTS Performance Profiler
I’ve always liked Red Gate products. Reflector is a great tool for decompiling assemblies to see how something was constructed, and the ANTS Memory Profiler is an excellent tool for discovering sources of memory issues in your applications. So when I had a chance to really examine the latest ANTS Performance Profiler (6.3), I jumped at the opportunity to see how well it works. Background A performance profiler’s main job is to keep track of how much time is typically spent in each unit of code. This ......

ANTS Memory Profiler 7.0
I had always been a fan of ANTS products (Reflector is absolutely invaluable, and their performance profiler is great as well – very easy to use!), so I was curious to see what the ANTS Memory Profiler could show me. You can check out more information about the profiler at Red Gate's web site at www.red-gate.com/products/d... Background While a performance profiler will track how much time is typically spent in each unit of code, a memory profiler gives you much ......
