ASP.NET Troubleshooting and Debugging

ASP.NET includes features to help you diagnose problems that might arise in your Web application. These include:

  • A debugger that you can use to step through a page or component as it is running.

  • Techniques for avoiding errors and capturing information when they do occur.

  • Tracing page requests and gathering information about each step of page processing.

  • Raising and responding to health monitoring events, which can log information about performance and error conditions.

The topics in this section describe each of these troubleshooting features.
