Something I’ve done a lot of over the past few years is performance tuning of time critical code, mainly for high performance client/server messaging libraries.
I want to ask did Microsoft address performance and profiling in their .Net MF standard?
I suppose once could profile (where possible) some class libraries on a desktop PC and assume that adjustments that speed up code on a PC will similarly speed up code running on a Gadget Processor.
I searched the forum here for ‘profiling’ and saw a few posts that seemed to focus on timing measurements.
Not sure what people do here but I have used settled upon the Stopwatch.ElapsedTicks (instance property) or Stopwatch.GetTimestamp() (Static method) as the basis of all high precision time measurements.
But this only works if there is a hardware based high precision timer (See Stopwatch.IsHighResolution for more), so does these Gadgeteer boards provide a HPET?
Using this on desktop/server code allows me to measure TCP/IP message transit times with microsecond level precision it would be great to be able to do similar on these boards.
Is there any actual profiling support/tools for doing this on Gadgeteer devices?
Any info much appreciated.
