Web Applications Using IIS
Before you start profiling a web application make sure that:
- IIS is installed on your computer.
- Your web application is deployed to IIS.
- Caching in your web browser is disabled. Alternatively, use Ctrl F5 to manually refresh the page that is running the profiled application.
In order to profile an IIS-hosted web application, you should just run the profiler and it will attach itself to Internet Information Services. Note that in order to profile IIS-hosted web applications, dotTrace needs to be run on behalf of Administrator.
Optionally you can specify the following parameters:
URL to invoke the web application.
A browser that should run the application. The default system browser is pre-selected.
