The Black Box records performance
counters related to .NET GC. These
counters indicate the status of GC at
any point in time. Fully synchronized with
all other recorded data (e.g. assembly
invocations, database calls, process
start, and more), a developer can easily
identify GC-related problems.
The Black Box records all necessary
performance counters, messages written
to the Event Log, as well as application
and framework settings (.NET config file
accesses, IIS configuration and browser
settings). Integrated into the Black Box
log, this data allows the support engineer
to pinpoint non-optimized settings that
cause application slow downs.
The Black Box records all Remoting calls
(both on the client and server sides) and
presents their performance in the application
performance dialog, thus allowing a
developer to pinpoint the slow performing
calls. When required, the AppSight user
can drill down to analyze execution of
Remoting calls at the code level.
The Black Box records the interactions
of the application with home grown and
3rd party components, thus allowing
the AppSight user to easily identify
performance bottlenecks that are caused
by external .NET and legacy components.
The Black Box records all end-user
actions and allows a support engineer to
play them back as a movie or text, thus
pinpointing end-user errors and easily
understanding the end-user experience.
