It's a common problem—you're getting close to the point at which you're supposed to deploy your new ASP.NET application in to production and somehow it just doesn’t seem very fast. Perhaps you've already deployed your application in to production and now you're getting complaints from customers that it's just plain crazy-slow or that there are intermittent errors.

Yikes! You've got performance problems. Thankfully, Visual Studio has some great features to help out of this bind.

In this session, Ben will start out with a running Web application with performance problems and show you how to find and fix these performance problems using Web Performance Tests, Load Tests, Unit Tests, Performance Explorer, custom performance counters, and code profiling. Along the way, Ben will discuss what you need to run your load tests in the cloud using Visual Studio Online or on-premise with a Load Test Rig.

You will learn:

  • About the performance testing tools in the Visual Studio world
  • How do you use the tools to recreate and find the problem(s) in an underperforming app
  • How you use the VS code profiling tools to find problems
