    Sometimes it's nice to use a unit test as a simple way to do some basic profiling while your fleshing out the initial implementation of something. Visual Studio offers the ability to profile for a test method by right clicking and choosing the aptly named "Create Peformance Session..." menu item. Is there any plan to support something similar in JustTrace?

    Is this possible to do with JustTrace in the most current version? I have a unit test that verifies a set of calculation-intensive business rules, and it would be nice to be able to run a profile on this (since I do not yet have any "real" app calling the business logic).

    Regards,
    Thomas

    Hello Thomas,

    It is unfortunate to say, but we still do not support profiling unit tests execution.

    The feature was planned for release in JustTrace 2013 Q1. However due to some unplanned matters its implementation will follow one of the next major releases after the Q1.

    I hope the information helps. Do not hesitate to contact us further, if you need any help concerning JustTrace.

    All the best,

    That's OK - thank you for getting back to this thread.
    Looking forward to this (admittedly, nice-to-have) feature.

    Hi Drew,

    We have great news! We still haven't implemented it! But that's not the great news (I mean, what's so great about that?).

    What is great is that we have our "Profile next application" feature (see here). Using this feature you could easily attach the profiler to any executable that is just about to be started. For example, if you're using MSTest for testing, then all you need to do is "Profile next application" with a file name of "QTAgent" (for VS2012 without test settings use "vstest.executionengine"). This will make JustTrace attach to the unit test runner and eventually give you a performance profile of the test run. The only ingredient here is knowing the name of the test runner's process. If you run into trouble with that, then don't hesitate to contact us again.

    This will, in principle, give you unit test profiling, both performance and memory.

    The other piece of good news is that we're actively working on integrating JustTrace with JustCode's unit test runner. You will be able to profile tests right from the JustCode test runner at most by Q3 SP1's release.

    Have a nice day!
