Code performance analysis - Profiler?

Recommended Posts

I'm writing a program in C# using Visual Studio 2008, and think I'm getting to the stage where I need to do some performance analysis on my code - look for bottlenecks and so forth. Can you recommend any suitable (preferably free) software that would be suitable for the task? An I right in thinking this kind of tool is known as a profiler? Thanks in advance.

A profiler may better suited for your needs but a good start in identifying where bottlenecks may be is to simply calculate the time elapsed during the execution of some portion of code if you haven't done so already.

Here's an example in VB but the concept is exactly the same.

I'm releasing the next proper version of SlimTune within 24 hours, probably much less. Try it out tomorrow and let me know how it goes.
