.. Meeting Topic: Performance Profiling .NET Applications

.. Speaker: Peter Varhol, Product Manager, DevPartner Studio,

Performance profiling allows you to identify which sections of your code are
taking a long time to execute. This presentation will discuss performance
profiling in general, providing information on when and why to profile .NET
code. It will focus on the ICorProfilerInfo and ICorProfilerCallback
interfaces provided by Microsoft to profile .NET applications, with some
discussion on what features are needed in a .NET profiler. Last, it will
include a demonstration of a commercial profiler, available from Compuware
Corporation, that provides performance information on both .NET and native
code in the same session.
