Profiling Revit Plug-in

288 Views, 2 Replies

Does anyone know a tool that can be used for performance profiling of a Revit plug-in? Every tool I've checked can not profile an add-on loaded in the Revit process.


Most of CLR profilers crash or don't get any informations when i try to profile the Revit.exe process.

AMD Code Analyst and Very Sleepy give only the functions address not also the functions name even if the path to the PDB files is set correctly.


Any sugestions?

What version of Visual Studio (2010, right?) do you have?  I'm asking because I have Professional that has no profiling tools, and if you have a version above Pro with the tools and those tools can't be used for add-ins.


Thanks, Chuck

Unfortunately, we too have heard that managed code profilers do not work with Revit 2010 onwards. 


Sorry for the bad news.
