Setting Up Performance Analysis
Analyzing the performance of distributed applications with Visual Studio Analyzer begins with one or more connections. In a Visual Studio Analyzer project, you connect to one or more computers that are running the Visual Studio Analyzer server components, and then create a filter that identifies the events you want to collect.
After you have designed a filter and set it as the active filter for the project, you can begin collecting data. As the computers to which you are connected generate events that meet your filter specification, data about those events is written to an event log. When you are finished recording, you can use a Visual Studio Analyzer view to determine how to display the collected data for analysis. You can also apply filters to your views on the data to further refine your analysis.
