Visual Studio Analyzer

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Visual Studio Analyzer is a performance analysis tool you can use to examine and debug distributed applications. As your application runs, Visual Studio Analyzer can record data about its performance and execution. You can then view this data in tables, charts, and diagrams. With the data collection and display capabilities in Visual Studio Analyzer, you can find out whether any performance bottlenecks impact your application, how the components in your application interact, and how your application impacts the overall system.
