Collecting Application Statistics for ASP.NET Web Applications Using the Profiler Sampling Method from the Command Line
This section describes the procedures and options for collecting performance statistics for an ASP.NET Web application by using the VSPerfASPNETCmd and VSPerfCmd command-line tool and the sampling profiling method.
Although the VSPerfCmd tool gives you complete access to Profiling Tools functionality, including pausing and resuming profiling, and collecting additional data from processor and Windows performance counters, you should use use the VSPerfASPNETCmd command line tool when you do not need this functionality. The VSPerfASPNETCmd command line tool is the preferred method when your are profiling ASP.NET Web sites using the stand-alone profiler. Compared with the VSPerfCmd command line tool, no environment variables need to be set, and rebooting the computer is not required. For more information, see Rapid Web Site Profiling with VSPerfASPNETCmd.
