New ANTS Profiler™ integrates with Visual Studio, placing better performance a mouse click away
CAMBRIDGE, U.K., March 15, 2007 - Red Gate Software has released a new version of ANTS Profiler that is fully integrated with Visual Studio, making it easier and faster than ever before to optimize performance for applications written in any of the languages available on the .NET framework.
With ANTS Profiler 3, developers do not need to leave Visual Studio 2003 or 2005 to pinpoint performance bottlenecks within their applications. A click of a button launches ANTS Profiler within seconds, with the executable path already set. Context sensitivity lets users set up what method, class or namespace they want to profile, without having to remember its' name.
Freedom of choice
ANTS Profiler 3 provides both fast and detailed modes of profiling. The fast mode runs more than 10 times faster than the detailed mode, providing a quick overview of how long it takes for each method to execute. The detailed, or line-level, mode shows how long each line of code takes to execute. This enables developers to identify the exact lines of code that are causing performance bottlenecks.
A new API within ANTS Profiler 3 also provides greater flexibility, allowing users to disable the profiler within their code, take snapshots, and reset the profiler exactly where they want within their application.
"ANTS Profiler 3 works the way a developer wants to work," says Richard Mitchell, Red Gate's Lead Developer for ANTS Profiler 3. "Visual Studio integration makes it easy to launch the profiler any time and anywhere, and different modes of profiling and levels of control give developers the freedom to get the job done in the most efficient way."
ROI in minutes
"The new ANTS Profiler paid for itself in the first 10 minutes after downloading and installing," says David Takahashi of Pitney Bowes Group 1 Software. "I had a performance problem, but I didn't know where it was. The first run of ANTS Profiler showed me exactly where it was; subsequent runs showed me where I could focus my performance-boosting work. This is an invaluable tool to have in your programming tool chest."
Advanced support, immediate availability
ANTS Profiler 3 provides additional support for the following:
- 64-bit systems
- IIS7 on Windows Vista
- .NET 3.0 applications based on Windows Communication Framework, Windows Presentation Framework, and Windows Workflow
- ASP.NET development web servers
A fully functional version of ANTS Profiler 3 is available immediately as a free, 14-day trial download, and for direct purchase, from this website.
