Red Gate launched the Ants Performance Profiler 7.0 product today. This application is simply amazing! SharePoint 2010 support! Decompilation without PDB using Reflector’s engine! Azure and EC2 Support! Seriously, if you need a profiler for your .NET applications this one takes the cake.
They have some great videos online to show you how the product works and the team is very interactive if you have questions or concerns. There is also a 14 day trial so you can give it a go. The license fee is only $395, which is amazing if you think about the time it could save you on finding out why your app is not performing well.
Here some details I received from the product team:
Version 7.0 includes integrated decompilation: when profiling methods and assemblies with no source code file, you can generate source code right from the profiler interface. You can then browse and navigate this automatically generated source as if it was your own. If you have an assembly’s PDB file but no source, integrated decompilation even lets you view line-level timings for each method, pinpointing the exact cause of performance bottlenecks. Integrated decompilation is powered by .NET Reflector, but you don’t need Reflector installed to use the functionality.
Also new in ANTS Performance Profiler 7.0:
· Full support for SharePoint 2010 – No need to manually configure profiling for the latest version of SharePoint
· Full support for IIS Express
· Azure and Amazon EC2 support, enabling you to profile in the cloud
