Why upgrade to dotMemory 4.1? For at least 6 reasons:

1: Disable/Enable collection allocations on the fly.
To profile certain functionality of your app without slowing down all of its other areas, try disabling allocations collection directly from the real-time profiling control view. For your convenience allocations collection period is marked by red line on a timeline.

2: Get more data on GC roots.
Starting from this update, dotMemory shows you the name of the field through which a static object is referenced. Later we plan to publish a good read on GC roots basics, so stay tuned.

3: Detect more common issues in a single click.
To help you focus on what really needs your attention, we’ve added a new automatic inspection that finds String duplicates and shows the related memory waste. Two more recently added automatic inspections, both related to WPF, were announced earlier in v4.0.10.

4: Copy, save and share profiling results.
Simply press Ctrl+C to copy current analysis results to the clipboard. Selection and copying of multiple rows is supported for all “Type List” views, all nicely formatted and ready to be compared or shared.

5: Enjoy new restyled UI icons. Our notion of profiling is that it should be clear, productive and even beautiful. That’s why this update features new great-looking UI icons for your viewing pleasure.

6: Name your analysis. Easily order and manage multiple memory investigations by providing your analysis tabs with custom names. Never again get lost in loads of various unnamed analyses.

    Hi guys,
    how can I profile unit-tests (NUnit)?

    I tried to run tests with nunit-console and use API to collect allocations – everything runs fine, but no memory dumps are collected.
