Using Perforator to Analyze Rendering Behavior
Perforator is a WPF performance profiling tool for analyzing rendering behavior. Perforator displays a set of values that allow you to analyze very specific rendering behavior in parts of your application. In this case, Perforator shows a rendering frame rate of 60 frames per second for the PhotoDemo sample application.
