    "Fast, unobtrusive, easy to use, does what it claims"

    January 5, 2010  |   By joelkatz

    Pros

    This program is less than 3MB. Installs in a minute, and does exactly what it says it will do.

    Cons

    I found the user-interface a bit awkward for ending tests and then viewing the results. Maybe I'm just not doing things the best way. Also, it doesn't separate time running from time waiting in functions that block very well.

    Summary

    This is so fast and easy to use (except for the one clunkiness issue I mentioned above) that people may actually *use* it even when they don't actually have a problem. That will result in code that's smoother and more robust, and that's a good thing. This is the best profiler I have ever used.

    Are you using the windows thread clock instead of processor time stamp counter? If on windows, the thread clock discounts wait/sleep time. (This may not be available in your version of glowcode)
