Profile MAUI Application

MAUI applications are cross-platform solutions built using the .NET Multi-platform App UI (MAUI) framework, designed to enable developers to create applications for Android, iOS, Windows, and macOS using a single shared codebase.

Currently, dotMemory supports:

  • Windows – WinUI applications targeting .NET 7.0 and later.

  1. Run dotMemory as a standalone application. The dotMemory Home window will open.

  2. Add a run configuration – the configuration that tells dotMemory how to run the profiled application:

    1. Under Choose what you want to profile, New Process Run, click Add run configuration Add run configuration.

    2. In the New Run Configuration wizard, choose MAUI and click Next.

    3. Specify application options:

      • In Packages, choose the application you want to profile. If the application you're looking for is missing, click Refresh to update the list.

      • In Set environment variables specify the required environment variables. Each variable must be specified on a new line.

      • Path to the application bundle (.app).

      • Command-line Arguments for the application (if required).

      • A full path to the application Working directory (by default, it is the same directory where the executable is located).

      • Set environment variables lets you run the profiled application with specific environment variables. Each variable must be specified on a new line.

    4. Click Save.

  3. Make sure the created run configuration is selected in the New Process Run list.

  4. Under Choose how you want to profile it, specify profiling options:

  5. Click Start. This will start the profiling session.

  6. Go through a particular workflow in your application (if you want to check it on potential memory issues) or reproduce a particular memory issue. Collect memory snapshots using the Get Snapshot button. Learn more about how to control the profiling session

  7. After you collect the data, either close the profiled application or detach the profiler using the Detach button.

  8. Analyze the collected snapshots.
