Windows Performance Toolkit: CPU Analysis

Affiliation: UIUC


Type: Streaming Resource

Description: The CPU is the brain of the computer. Sometimes it gets overtaxed. As a Windows developer, it's important to make your applications execute as fast as possible while minimizing the consumption of system resources. Analyzing the CPU usage of your application with the Windows Performance Toolkit can help you understand its inner workings and optimize its performance. Here Thomas Pantels uses two tools in Windows Performance Toolkit—Windows Performance Analyzer and Windows Performance Recorder—to profile an application and transform a single-threaded app into a multithreaded version where tasks run in parallel.
