CA APM s Smart Instrumentation gives us deep visibility into transaction traces, down through the call stack and into the code which is not only critical in helping our application development and delivery teams improve code quality, it also enables our application support teams to diagnose problems faster and reduce mean time to repair of outages, said Chris Proulx, principle systems engineer, Liberty Mutual.
Unlike most profilers, Devart's ORM profiler allows developers to see all the details of the ORM calls: call stack, execution time, generated SQL, and database calls, executed for the LINQ statement.
Other new features include: enhanced autoscripting with Intellisense; open and heterogeneous database support; enhanced debugging features such as tracepoints and the ability to run to a specified function on the call stack, as well as popup windows to enable easy display of variables and property values of PowerBuilder and .
Other topics include memorized forward computation of dynamic slices, call stack coverage for GUI test suite reduction, the relationship between software assertions and faults, and model simulation for test execution capacity estimation.
Full Issue and incident logging details (incl allocation, time/date, description, call stack info etc)
The simulator version of the debugger includes a new Timeline window allowing graphically correlated visualization of the call stack and the interrupt log, both plotted against time.
SQL Sentry Plan Explorer PRO delivers additional user efficiency via Session History Tracking and new functionality regarding Wait Statistics, Full Query Call Stack information and Deadlocks analysis.
Call Stack enables developers to view all function names taken from function lists (since IE reports most of them as anonymous)
Upon doing so, the Karavel team immediately identified a production performance bottleneck, thanks to AppDynamics' ability to auto-discover and display full call stack latency breakdown for problematic business transactions.
Data provided by the JTAGICE3 and other debug probes can also be visualized as graphs presented on a shared timeline in the new Timeline window, where simultaneously the call stack and interrupt activity can be displayed.
They allow graphic visualization of the entire embedded system operation, including code flow, register access, memory movement, call stack, multi-core execution and peripheral access.
The debugger also features a Timeline window displaying a graphical view of the interrupt log and the call stack on a shared timeline.
