Under the ORM Hood: Revealing the SQL

Your application code may look neat and clean, and you are using a sound Object-relational Mapper, but when you put the pedal to the metal, you’re not getting the performance. The time has come to lift the hood and see what SQL is being generated by the ORM, and what part of your code is causing the […]

The Fast Guide to Application Profiling

In this sample chapter from his recently released book (co-Authored with Paul Glavich) Chris Farrell gives us a fast overview of performance profiling, memory profiling, profiling tools, and in fact everything we need to know when it comes to profiling our applications. This is a great first step, and The Complete Guide to .NET Performance […]

Optimizing Memory Usage in a .NET Application with ANTS Memory Profiler

Most people have encountered an OutOfMemory problem at some point or other, and these people know that tracking down the source of the problem is often a time-consuming and frustrating task. Florian Standhartinger gives us a walkthrough of how he used the ANTS Memory Profiler to help make an otherwise painful task that little bit […]

Understanding Performance Profiling Targets

In this sample chapter from his upcoming book (co-authored with Chris Farrell), Paul Glavich explains performance metrics and walks us through the steps needed to establish meaningful performance targets. He covers many metrics such as "time to first byte" and explains why you should add some contingency into your estimated performance requirements. Identifying Performance Targets […]

Using a Profiler to Speed Application Performance

  Use a profiler to measure before you optimise. If ever you doubt this advice, then you should read this fascinating account of how an application was given a five-fold speed increase just by finding out exactly where the performance problems were and then tackling them in detail. “ We now get through the full […]

Optimising a High-Performance Computing Tool

Model Checking Many computer systems nowadays have their ‘correctness’ checked using sample testing, but this isn’t enough where failure can lead to catastrophe. Model Checking techniques are far better because they explore all scenarios and verify whether responses meet expectations in each instance. Now there is a publicly available .NET Model Checker that introduces a […]

The Why and How of .NET ProfilingThe Why and How of .NET Profiling

Amirthalingam Prasanna gives a simple and practical guide about why you need to profile your .NET applications and how you would go about doing it. Profiling your .NET code Profiling gathers information about an executing application, allowing you to determine those improvements that are required in your application. Profiling is overlooked or not performed on […]
