a .NET profiler for the compact framework


Thank god there’s now a .NET Compact Framework profiler available – we can now start to optimize our compact framework applications – and the best of the story: this one works well and is completely free.

Key features:

  • The EQATEC Profiler is a code profiler, not a memory profiler.
    So it’s all about making your app run faster, not about tracking
    objects and memory.The report will tell you exactly how many times each method was
    called and how long it took. You can then speedup
    your application by optimizing just the most expensive methods.
  • The profiler and viewer are very easy to use. The viewer
    in particular has been designed to make digging into the
    report easy and useful.Instead of
    “percent of total execution time”-bars and filters and stuff that look fancy,
    but are often useless in practice, we’ve made it easy for you to see and navigate to
    what really
    matters: the most expensive methods and their context.
  • The overhead depends on the instrumentation-level and
    the application itself, but typically
    your app will only run 20-40% slower and become 30-50% bigger. This low overhead means you’re usually able to run your app just like
    normal, even for timing-critical code.
  • “-and free means crap, right?”
    Well, not always. You know, some users have actually taken time to write us saying that we ought to charge them for this kind of
    quality tool. Really, its true!
    However, for now we’ve decided not to.
