Unable to profile WCF on remote IIS

Postby Username » Thu Sep 09, 2010 5:50 am

Hello everyone.

I have WCF service on remote Servers with IIS 6. To debug it I choose ASP.NET web application (IIS) menu and when I set ASP.NET web application (URL) to it gives me a warning "The URL you have specified for your ASP.NET application may be reffering to a remote computer. ANTS MemoryProfiler cannot profile remote ASP.NET applications."
I'm using trial version of ANTS Performance Profiler 6.

How can I profile WCF service on remote IIS ?

Because ANTS Performance and Memory Profilers need access to the local CLR, it's still not possible to profile a website on another computer. If we implemented remote profiling, it would probably still require that the COR_PROFILER COM component be registered on the remote computer anyway, so you could never have true remote profiling capability without installing something on both computers.
