Finding memory leaks with ANTS Memory Profiler

Finding memory leaks with ANTS Memory Profiler

  • Comments 6

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.
