Any decent C# profilers out there?


Question

I need a C# profiler.

Although I'm not averse to paying for one, something which is free or at least with a trial version would be ideal since it takes time to raise a purchase order.

Any recommendations?

I used Ants profiler on a large c# project a year and a half ago. It really performed very nicely for what it cost, and even outperformed a few of the more expensive competitors.

It calculates cost on with almost a line by line resolution.

The EQATEC profiler is very good and is completely free. It's easy to setup and use, and doesn't seem to add too much of an overhead to the application. I've just started using it today and have already found a couple of bottlenecks I wouldn't have spotted otherwise.

dotTrace from JetBrains is widely used.

Patrick Smacchia's awesome NDepend is excellent for providing static analysis.

I maintain a comprehensive list of profilers for .NET on SharpToolbox.com.

You'll find there the tools suggested here and more, each with a short description of what it proposes.

We use Ants profiler where I work. It gives very detailed information in a simple manner.
