Tales from the Development Crypt: dotTrace Paradigm Shift

Everybody knows that profilers throw OutOfMemoryException‘s during multihour sessions with fatty applications. It’s just as certain as death, taxes and beer, isn’t it?

Well, the new version of dotTrace will apparently go its own way: profiler core now prefers InsufficientDiskSpaceException‘s.

Yes, you got it right — we’ve improved dotTrace to handle tens and even hundreds of gigabytes of monitored data without running out of memory. Now only your hard drive is the limit!

    I got DotTrace 3.1 last build (357) and I keep getting the Out of memory exception…Due to this I cannot work with the profiler…
    When this improvement will be available???? It is very urgent for me…
