I need to profile my code, but can't find one for .NET 2.0. My code is in C# and I'm using VS.NET 2005. Any recommendations? Thanks. -Nick

Not quite. I need to find out where time is spent. The CLR Profiler is meant for memory, not for time.

You could checkout GlowCode:

I have never used it for C# but it is quite alright for unmanaged c++.

Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition has fairly solid sampling and instrumented profiling built right into it, although you do pay a premium for it. Only other solution I've tried and can really recommend would be Compuware's DevPartner, which also costs a pretty penny. As the poster above mentioned, I've seen Glowcode mentioned a few times and people always seem to have good things to say about it.

I just took a gander at the Glowcode managed 2.0 profiler, it looks like a turd to me. For the same amount of money I'd go with Red Gate's ANTS Profiler, it's significantly better. I also think that the profiler in the Team Suite edition of VS2005 is fairly lacking. I stick with ANTS most of the time. I've heard the DevPartner profiler is pretty good, but I've not used it. If you want free, there looks to be a new version of NProf available (http://www.mertner.com/confluence/display/NProf/Home) but it's in a pretty sad state. Of course for allocation profiling I still use trusty old CLR Profiler.
