If you are serious about getting the
best performance possible out of a managed app, you need to be using a
profiler. The devs that designed
and wrote the CLR still need to use a profiler to
judge how to improve the performance of a managed app..
Answer questions like how many
ArrayLists am I creating? When is
my peak memory usage?
Here is one profiler… there are
others. I know the guy that wrote
this one and is the same guy that made the GC scale super well on multi-proc
machines. He knows memory
management inside and out…
