After posting about profiling Silverlight 4 out of the box, the author of a tool was kind enough to share with me his free .NET profiling tool. It’s free, and it does a lot more than Silverlight. The manual is very straightforward but I wanted to make a quick an easy “light tour” to show you how I profiled the X-Fit app using the tool. In less than 4 minutes I’ll run two different profiles, a trace and a memory scan. The memory scan lets you see individual classes, number of objects, size, etc, so the video doesn’t tap into the full features, but should show how fast and easy it makes profiling.

Sorry, this was quick and dirty over lunch so I didn’t encode it to Silverlight – Jing and ScreenToaster came through (link to new window):
