#785 – Using the Visual Profiler Tool

Once you install the WPF Performance Suite, you can use the tool to help improve the performance of your application.

In addition to the Perforator tool, the Performance Suite includes the Visual Profiler tool, which is designed to help you profile your application at run-time.  Profiling involves monitoring your application at run-time to look at the performance aspects of individual elements.  This will help you figure out the location of any performance bottlenecks.

To run the Visual Profiler, start the WPF Performance Suite and click on the Visual Profiler tab.  Start your WPF application and then click Select Process under the Actions menu to select your process.

Once you connect the Visual Profiler to your application, you’ll see a variety of information, including:

  • A visual tree that indicates CPU time spent for layout of an element and its children
  • Measure/Arrange CPU usage for selected element
  • Application CPU usage breakdown
