.csv files from vsperfreport.exe

Just this morning someone on an internal microsoft list pointed me to a promising looking (and free) .csv parsing tool - http://www.logparser.com/  It claims the ability to run SQL queries against CSV files.  http://www.microsoft.com/technet/community/scriptcenter/logs/logparser/default.mspx 

This could be handy for looking at the .csv files that are generated by vsperfreport, especially if you need to do this stuff programmatically.  And not to let CSV steal all of XML's thunder, vsperfreport can generate XML instead if you prefer parsing that.

  1. You can use ODBC.NET to read in CSV files as well. It seems fast enough, and stable enough for what I’ve worked with, and it doesn’t need a separate install.
