Complete a survey to help us make our profilers better

JetBrains is now conducting a study to learn more about your preferences in profiling and we are asking you to share what you think.

If you complete the survey, you will have a chance to win one of ten $100 certificates, or one of 10 free personal licenses, or free personal license upgrades for your choice of ReSharper, dotCover or dotTrace.

Please let us know how we can improve our profiling tools by completing this survey (it will take from 10 to 15 minutes).

This study begins July, 31. We will announce the survey results on September 9, 2013. If you are one of the winners, we will send your prize to the email address you provided. We’ll also announce the results in our blog and on Twitter.

    Survey => completed.

    Work dropped the $800 or so on ANTS Performance Profiler Professional purely for its ability to profile ADO .NET calls and show the SQL and timings.

    Context: I’ve inherited an application that makes poor use of an ORM and frequently falls victim to the N+1 selects issue (when it’s not abusing LINQ to generate needlessly complex queries).

    The database profiling tracks down these sorts of performance virtually instantly, and it gives me the exact line the problem is at (if I look at the stack trace) 7 times out of 10.

    Sometimes it doesn’t do this so well, and at other times it feels the profiler is too simplistic for profiling performance issues that aren’t “hey look this function call/database query takes 40 seconds to complete”.

    If JetBrains could make a comprehensive profiler that can also show me bad queries (and for MSSQL: if you could figure out a way to get the execution plan too that would be great), capable of finding the offending C# code 9/10 times … I think you’d have a sale.

    Thanks a lot for a detailed comment! In case we decide to support SQL profiling, we’ll take your use case into consideration.
