I have generated a VSP file from a Silverlight application following these instructions: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/profiler/archive/2010/04/26/vs2010-silverlight-4-profiling.aspx
The resulting file is about 2GB. I tried this several times with always the same results: VS "analyzing report" gets stuck at about 20%.
I'm on 8-core i7, 8GB RAM and SSD. VS is consuming about 13% CPU overall (about 40% on 2 cores). It does not progress however. After 3 hours it's exactly where it was.
I tried the command line VSPerfReport, with the same result. What gives?
Thank you for posting in the MSDN forum.
Not the Silverlight expert, maybe you could share us your project to us, we try to profile it.
Based on your description, the result file is very big, I double that it is related to your app, if it is a huge app, I’m afraid that if will take more time.
Not very sure whether you profile the app in instrumentation mode, it seems that in instrumentation mode the profiler is collecting huge files that take a long time to analyze, see “Q: In instrumentation mode the profiler is collecting huge files that take a long time to analyze. What can I do to get more manageable file sizes?”
If possible, you could try to profile a simple Silverlight app, check whether it would take more time, in addition, sometime it will take long time when we first profile a app, maybe you could try to profile it again and check it. To make sure that other apps impact the profiler. If possible, close the firewall and the anti-virus software and other apps, check it again. Hope it could help.
