Walkthroughs: Using VSTS Test and Profilers to Find Performance Issues
Tess Ferrandez recently wrote a couple of articles that extend her popular series of debugging labs to focus on measuring and improving performance.
- In 'Using VSTS Test and Profilers to troubleshoot performance issues (low cpu hang)', Tess introduces a performance problem into an ASP.NET application and uses the Visual Studio Profiler with a Load Test to track down the problem.
- In 'Using VSTS Test and Profilers to troubleshoot a High CPU in GC issue', Tess tracks down a string concatenation issue that is causing high CPU usage due to garbage collection.
The walkthroughs include sample code, lots of screenshots and analysis.
