Referring my disappointment from the topics on 70-552, I start looking on new test features, provider by Visual Studio 2008. I worked with performance analyzer in VS2005 (which is looked much more like debug tools for .NET CLR developers in MS) and today, after public release of VS2008, I can show you my research.
From the first sight, it looks like nothing changed
But when we're digging deeper, we discover new interesting features.
Look in this. My application decodes jpegs most of the time. And this is very right.
Another great feature, that makes our live easier is Set Root method and Hot Path marking. Now, once, you found the root of your application, you're able to "hide" unnecessary nodes (in most cases, those are system calls) and then mark the critical path (from performance point of view) in your call tree. You also can find all modules and functions, called selected method.
Another feature of new performance analysis tool is ability to compare your test run samples.
Very very cool tool, however it still too complicated for average user to understand what all those numbers mean, even with handy new Noise Reduction filters 🙂
Now you, probably, know what the problem with CarKiosk.exe application. You do not know what is it? Come and see at Developer Academy II at DEV 411.
