Applications running slowly, but not sure why? What if you had a tool that could point out specifically which methods in your application were slowing it down? ANTS Performance Profiler is a code profiler for .NET, ASP.NET, and ASP.NET MVC applications. It helps you debug your application quickly by giving you a complete picture of your application’s performance. Through an iterative process of identifying your application’s critical path, refactoring methods along that path, then identifying the new critical path, you can fine-tune your application for greater performance.
