Red Gate releases new ANTS Performance Profiler 6
New .NET profiler stakes fresh ground with ability to analyze performance for live websites, SQL profiling, and Silverlight support
CAMBRIDGE, UK, June 24, 2010 - Red Gate fulfilled a wish of many .NET developers today with the release of ANTS Performance Profiler 6: the new .NET profiler features attach to process, giving developers a way to profile the performance of a live website with little or no overhead to affect results.
The ability to attach ANTS Performance Profiler 6 to a live production ASP .NET website enables developers to profile performance without going offline, saving time and ensuring that profiling data reflects real-world user experience. It's just one major addition to what Red Gate believes is the most complete .NET performance profiler ever. Other new features in ANTS Performance Profiler 6 include:
- Profiling of SQL and I/O performance, providing a complete picture of application performance.
- Automated profiling via the command line, integrating profiling into the application build process.
- Near-zero overhead mode, giving users a choice of profiling with fast sampling or detailed instrumentation.
- Silverlight performance profiling for the increasing number of developers gravitating toward this popular Microsoft technology.
- Support for .NET 4 and its new features.
Finding the bottleneck wherever it is
Jeremy Jarrell of Matrix Solutions says that ANTS Performance Profiler 6 gives him a faster, more comprehensive view of performance problems.
"The number one rule of profiling is that the bottleneck is never where you think it is," says Jarrell. "What makes ANTS Performance Profiler 6 so incredibly valuable to us is that it aggregates all of our common performance bottlenecks web server application code, disk I/O and database into a single view. Another huge win is that the SQL Server section of ANTS automatically shows us the longest-running stored procedures."
Huge leap? You decide
"We think that ANTS Performance Profiler 6 is a huge leap," says Bart Read, Red Gate product manager. "But we're obviously biased: go in with a heavy dose of skepticism or with great expectations, but by all means try it for yourself."
