Profiler Not Starting

Postby meppel » Fri Sep 30, 2011 1:23 pm


I'm working on getting the profiler working. I have an ASP.NET MVC project that is hosted on a Windows Server 2008 box with IIS 7. The website is working great and can be browsed either locally or over the network.

The problem is when I try to hook up the profiler to the IIS site it hangs. What happens is that you can see a new process for W3WP.exe start, IE8 opens and then it sits with the status of "Website Found. Waiting for reply".

I've taken a look through my event viewer but there is nothing logged that would indicate a problem. Also the profiler tool is not throwing any exceptions.

Where should I be looking to troubleshoot this problem?

My guess is that Profiler is just making w3wp.exe really, really slow.

You may want to try a faster profiling mode (methods only) or disable overhead compensation.

Thanks for the reply. I moved the speed right to the fastest and it worked.
