WPF Performance Profiling Tools for the Client

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
 
Hi all- Can somebody lead me to a link or explain the difference between some of the leading WPF client side performance profiling tools available?  Our client is leaking memory, and we are trying to find a tool to track it down right now.  Currently, the one I stumbled upon was WPFPerf: http://windowsclient.net/wpf/perf/wpf-perf-tool.aspx   Our company is recommending that we use ANT, and being a GUI developer, I do not know enough to compare / contrast the two products (if one is better than the other for uncovering a client side memory leak / performance issue), or if neither is the best tool for the job, and if there is something better?  Any advice would be great.   Talk soon Chris

.NET CLR Profiling Services: Track Your Managed Components to Boost Application Performance

  

The Microsoft .NET platform provides you with a rich set of services for building profilers and application monitors for applications targeting the Common Language Runtime (CLR). These services expose runtime events that occur during the execution of a .NET application. They can be used to obtain information about managed code being executed under the runtime. This article describes the .NET CLR Profiling Services and shows how to use the services to build a simple profiler that will provide hot spot information for any .NET application. The sample profiler can easily be modified to suit other profiling and monitoring needs.

Performance monitor tools

  
Hi,What is the best tool to continously monitor the performance of the SQL Server, i.e. which queries are the most CPU intensive, which ones are causing most I/O operations etc.. I am not a hardcore DBA and I do not have the time to all the time search for information about which queries are causing the DB-server to run on a very high load. What I would like is to get a report with information about e.g. these are the queries that you should optimize etc..I would really appreciate some recommendations on the best way to continously get information about what is causing the high load on the servers and what can be done to improve the performance.Thanks in advance!Best regardsLars

Can I run Sql server 2000 client tools and SQL server 2005 on teh same machine.

  

Hi

Could you please advise me on this issue.

I have installed sql server 2000 client tools, and complete set up of sql server 2005 on my system.

The enterprise manager on sql 2000, crashes and and window vanishes, when ever i try to create DTS package.

They doubt its becos i am runnning both instance of sql server on the same machine- So its having some compactability issues.?

I am using windows 7 and i3 processor.

Thanks in advance.

Installing SQL server 2005 client tools.

  
I searched on internet and documents, but could not find the steps to install only client utilities for SQL Server 2005. I need something like Query Analyzer and isql to connect to the database.
I selected client tools only after clicking setup.exe, but query analyzer and isql or Microsoft Server Management studio were not installed.
Any help will be useful.


Thanks

Looking for Client Query Analyzer (SQL Server 2008) or Equivalent Reporting Tools

  

I've recently upgraded from SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2008.  My accounting and marketing team is skilled and has been using SQL Query Analyzer for years to run smaller queries and build small Crystal Reports.  Unfortunately Query Analyzer is now bundled into the management studio.  That's a bit too much software for this level of power users.

Is there a client-side query analyzer for SQL Server 2008?  I'd rather use a Microsoft product than a 3rd party tool, but I suppose I could do that too.  Looking for something simple that will:

1.  Show users the database tables and/or views

2.  Run queries

Perhaps query analyzer isn't the way to go and my team needs a different reporting system.  If this is the way MS is heading, could you direct me towards a product or service that allows power users to get the information they need?  They will still need to look at raw data to build Crystal Reports though.

Performance degradation using sql client

  
We have a SQL 2005 database running on a Windows 2003 Server.  We recently added two new data servers and used Windows 2008 Server.  We have tried R2 and non-R2, plus Windows 2003 Server, on these two new servers, and in all cases performance is so slow as to be unacceptable.  Clients access the data via a Windows 2008 Server running Terminal Services and hit a custom application.  We have tried many different configurations using backup servers, test servers, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server et. al. - oddly a very old XP client running the application against a 2003 server performs about 7 times faster than either Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows Server clients running same.  We have attempted to run the client application compiled under VS 2005, VS 2008, and VS 2010 - using .NET 2.0 to 4.0, under every configuration we can come up with.  What's odd is that neither the client nor the server are taxed for resources.  Memory is fine, processor time is fine, network traffic looks normal.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Do I want to use SQL 2008 SP2 or SQL 2008 R2 client tools to develop Reports for SQL 2008 (not R2)

  

Hi,

My situation is this: my company has a mixture of SQL 2005 and some SQL 2008 servers, but no immediate plans for SQL 2008 R2 servers.  We are starting to use VS2010 instead of VS2008 for C# development.  I need to develop RDLC in Visual Studio and RDL to deploy on RS on both 2005 and 2008.

I have SQL 2005 SP3 and SQL 2008 SP2 database engine + report services installed locally to support developing on both environments.  I *prefer* to develop in VS2010, so I think want I want to do is ---> Install the SQL 2008 R2 client tools and use those to develop reports against the SQL 2008 SP2 database.

Does that seem like the best idea?  What's the latest greatest version of client tool development - SQL 2008 R2 or SQL 2008 SP2?  Can I use SQL 2008 R2 client tools to get the "best experience" for working with SQL 2008 SP2 servers?

Thanks!


What will happen with SSMS2005 and BIDS2005 after installing SQL Server 2008 client tools to a works

  

In 2009, after I installed VS 2008, then I installed SQL Server 2005 client tools.  The SQL Server 2005 client-tools setup installed a VS 2005 for my BIDS.  It seemed to me, with VS 2008 installed, installing SQL Server 2008 will install/add BIDS directly into the installed VS 2008.  Am I right? 

My questions are  – what will happen with our old SQL 2000/2005 databases and BIDS2005 packages if I install SQL 2008 client tools at the same workstation with the existing SQL 2005 client tools.  (Installing SSMS 2005
disabled SSEM 2000.) 

Thanks,

Windows 7 SP1 x86, ODBC, and SQL Native Client Performance

  

Good Morning Everyone,

**Reposting to SQL Board. I have this question with Windows 7 Performance as well.**

Since applying SP1 to select Windows 7 Ent machines (testing before mass install), I have found that one of our applications that uses the SQL Native Client for an ODBC connection is awfully slow. It takes 5 minutes for the application to load and come back with initial data load/presentation. I have tried every other SQLCLI install available, including 2005, 2008, and 2008 R2. This was the case when I first tested the application with Windows 7 about 6 months ago until I found driver version 2007.100.2531.0 SQL Server Native Client 10.0, which seemed to resolve the slowness issue. Now, after applying SP1, it has reverted in being slow.

Is there anything I can look for or modify that might be causing this issue? What part of SP1 touched the ODBC or SQL driver?

Regards,

D

Architecture Tools in VSTS 2010

  
Designing new functionality on existing applications can be daunting. There are always differences between the original design and the current implementation.

The new Architecture tools within Visual Studio Team System 2010 help you understand the application you have, design new functionality you need, and validate that your design and your implementation do not deviate.
