SciTech Software AB Launches .NET Memory Profiler 3.5
SciTech Software has announced the release of .NET Memory Profiler 3.5, a tool for finding memory leaks and optimizing the memory usage in programs written in C#, VB.NET or any other .NET Language.
Memory leaks are a reality, even in a garbage collected environment like .NET. .NET Memory Profiler will automatically analyze the memory usage of an application and provide warnings and tips about memory issues, including potential memory leaks. This makes it possible to avoid performance problems that might not be detected by normal testing. Even a minor memory leak can cause a big problem in a long-running application.
The automatic memory analyzer is introduced in version 3.5. This version also provides significantly improved information related to unmanaged resources, for both 32- and 64-bit applications.
The profiler presents information about classes and unmanaged resources in real-time, both numerically and graphically. This information gives a good overview of the activity and status of the GC heap, but by collecting snapshots of the heap, very detailed information can be presented. Two snapshots can be compared, which is a very convenient and efficient way of detecting memory leaks in a program, especially when used in conjunction with the memory analyzer.
Memory information can also be analyzed by attaching to a running process or importing memory dump files. This significantly simplifies the process of investigating memory problems in production code.
The .NET Memory Profiler API makes it possible to automatically detect memory leaks and control the profiler from within the profiled program. By using the API and providing command line arguments to the profiler, fully automated memory testing can be performed.

.NET Memory profiler requires the .NET Framework to be installed, and runs on Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000 and Windows Server 2003/2008. It is available in two editions: Standard and Professional. The cost of the standard edition is US$ 159, and the cost of the Professional edition is US$ 295. The program can be purchased online at http://memprofiler.com/order.aspx .
