Windows Azure MVC 3 with Tools 1.4 (Profiling)

Like I posted in my previous blog post, I also checked the profiling option.


So after I deployed the application and found out it really worked, I went to the Server Explorer. There you can connect to Windows Azure Compute and while clicking down, you can choose for View Profiling Report.


Visual Studio gets busy and in the Windows Azure Activity log a new activity starts. At that point the data for the report is gathered form the Windows Azure tables with the tracing data.


When this is finished you will see the report.


Clicking on the link near the exclamation mark, the report gets richer


Very handy for profiling your application! For real monitoring you need different tools like Cerebrata Azure Diagnostics Manager or SCOM. But this beats the bad performance bugs from your application.
