Visual Studio Profiling Tools can collect performance data for JavaScript code that executes in an ASP.NET Web application, an arbitrary Web page, or JavaScript application by using the instrumentation profiling method.

NoteNote

You can profile JavaScript code only on Internet Explorer 8.

You can use the Profiling Wizard to create a performance session. Specify the instrumentation method and then specify the JavaScript profiling option on the Instrumentation page of the properties dialog box for the performance session.

When you specify JavaScript profiling, both the JavaScript code that executes in the browser and the ASP.NET code that executes on the server are profiled.

  • For an ASP.NET Web application, both the JavaScript code that executes in the browser and the ASP.NET code that executes on the server are profiled.

  • For an arbitrary Web page, the JavaScript code that executes in the browser is profiled.
