Optimizing Application Performance with Visual Studio 2005
To ensure optimum application performance in terms of throughput and processing speed, performance tuning can play a critical role. However, it could entail risks and unforeseen costs without the right approach. In order to reduce risks and costs, performance tuning should be treated as an integral part of a project life cycle. In most projects, however, it is conducted during the final stages of testing or when customers complain about performance post production deployment.
Performance tuning of .NET 2.0 applications can be achieved using Visual Studio 2005 tools. In this paper, I explore these tools and also provide guidelines on how to use them.
