Finding memory leaks with ANTS Memory Profiler


I was out looking for some sample scripts for tinyget and ran across this ANTS Memory Profiler review where Scott Seely has tested it out on some of my debugging labs.

I haven’t had the time and/or opportunity to test it out myself but since many people have asked me if I had used it or what I thought of it I thought I’d just point you to someone who has instead:)

Have fun,

Tess

    Hi,

    I’ve had a major memory leak problem a while ago and used a lot of different profiles I could find for .net apps and thanks to ANTS I was able to Identify and fix the leaks.

    Then I only used it to get memory snapshot after forcing the GC to see what can’t be removed and what was holding it.

    The other useful function I used was to profile code to spot unnecessary calls and to spot bottlenecks.  To identify early where speed can become an issue.

    This is worth checking out.

    Cheers,

    Jan

    ANTS Memory Profiler is a good tool.

    Even if they require a license – there is a workaround and you can use it even after the free trial period.
