Quickly spotting bottlenecks in your .NET application: priceless

There are some performances money can buy. For everything else, there’s dotTrace 4.0 Performance.


Jokes aside, here’s what dotTrace 4.0 Performance, currently in Beta, brings to the table.

Support for:

  • Visual Studio 2005, 2008, and 2010
  • .NET Compact Framework 3.5
  • .NET Framework 1.0 to 4.0
  • Silverlight 4

New profiling modes:

  • Remote profiling: connect to a remote machine to profile a standalone or web application, or a Windows service.
  • Line-by-line profiling: view detailed timing information for every statement in methods that have source code available.

What-if scenarios:

  • Ever thought, “What if I optimize this function by 40%?”? Now dotTrace knows the answer! It can recalculate a snapshot without reprofiling your application, so you can instantly estimate potential performance gains.

New edition scheme:
