Profile Static Method
Profiling of static methods is based on the ReSharper's run configurations feature. It gives you an ability to create a number of predefined configurations with different run parameters for your startup project, an arbitrary executable, or even any static method. As dotTrace shares the ReSharper platform, it is able to profile any run configuration including the ones for static methods.
To profile a static method
Open your solution in Visual Studio.
Open the file containing the static method you want to profile.
Open the action list for the method by placing cursor on the method and pressing Alt + Enter.
In the list, select.
Note that this session will use the profiling type that is currently selected in the Performance Profiler window.
In the Profile Startup Project window, configure profiling settings as described in Configure Profiling Session.
The profiled method will be run under a special JetLauncher process. After the method finishes working, the process will offer you to press any key. This will end the process and take a snapshot.
