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

January 05, 2010  |  By joelkatz

 |  Version: GlowCode 4.0

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.

"Great tool - produced amazing results"

May 26, 2006  |  By geoffGilbert

 |  Version: GlowCode 4.0

Pros

Thanks to the profiling features (Number of function visits, Average visit time, ...) that GlowCode offers along with its ability to profile individual lines of code I was able to find and repair serious bottlenecks in our software.

Cons

Minor annoyance, some of the windows created by GlowCode are set to "Always on top" which is an inconvenience.

"Easy profiling"

April 03, 2003

 |  Version: GlowCode 4.0

Summary

This is the software I searched for - gprof for Linux or prep, profile, plist for Windows is complicated and worked not the way I wanted. GlowCode is easy to use and show me what I was searching for: performance bottleneck and memory leaks!
