Collecting tier interaction data by using the Visual Studio IDE

Tier interaction profiling provides additional information about the execution times of functions of multi-tiered applications that communicate with databases through ADO.NET services. Data is collected only for synchronous function calls.

Visual Studio editions

Tier interaction profiling data can be collected using Visual Studio Ultimate, Visual Studio Premium, or Visual Studio Professional. However, tier interaction profiling data can be viewed only in Visual Studio Ultimate and Visual Studio Premium.

Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012

To collect tier interaction data on Windows 8 desktop apps and Windows Server 2012 apps, you must use the instrumentation method. You cannot collect tier interaction data for Windows Store apps. See Profiling Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 applications. You can include tier interaction data in all profiling methods on other supported version of Windows.

Performance Wizard

Because of a bug in the Performance Wizard, you must add the tier interaction data collection option to a profiling run from the Performance Explorer. You must also add the project, executable, or website to the Target node of Performance Explorer.

To add tier interaction data to a profiling run by using the performance session property pages

  1. In Performance Explorer, choose Properties from the context menu.

  2. Select Tier Interactions page and then check the Enable tier interaction profiling check box.

  3. In Performance Explorer, select the Targets node, and then specify the project, executable, or web site that you want to profile.
