About ANTS Performance Profiler
Published 11 June 2013
ANTS Performance Profiler lets you profile the code of applications written in any of the .NET Framework languages, including Visual Basic .NET, C#, and Managed C++. It can help identify inefficient parts of your application, by recording the time spent in each line of your code as you run your application.
You can use ANTS Performance Profiler to profile Windows Store apps, .NET desktop applications, ASP.NET web applications hosted in Internet Information Services (IIS) or the ASP.NET Development Server, .NET Windows services, COM+ server applications, Silverlight 4 or later applications, and XBAPs. You can also profile applications that host the .NET Runtime, for example Visual Studio .NET plug-ins.
What's new in version 8.5?
