Concurrency Visualizer: A Case Study

Boby George and Pooja Nagpal – testers on the Parallel Computing Platform team responsible for the parallel programming support in .NET 4- built a parallel spell checker algorithm and used the Concurrency Visualizer to analyze and improve the performance and scalability of their implementation.

Optimizing Parallel Applications Using Concurrency Visualizer: A Case Study demonstrates how the CPU Utilization view, Threads view, and Cores view can help identify and analyze the scalability bottlenecks in your code.
