No, Alanis, THIS is ironic previous: Performance optimizations: Rinse, Repeat, Repeat, Repeat next: The best bug reports are pull requests This is what I got when I was trying to figure out an OutOfMemoryException in RavenDB Comments 01/26/2011 04:41 PM by Koen I'd think you need a full reboot :o) 01/26/2011 04:42 PM by Erik No, Ayende, THAT is ReSharper. :) 01/26/2011 04:45 PM by Davy Brion no, the real irony here is the Ants Memory Profiler ad that i'm seeing on the right-side of this page right now :) 01/26/2011 05:40 PM by Bryan Murphy The new ants UI is great, but the program is slow and buggy as hell. I get much better results from JetBrains product. 01/26/2011 05:53 PM by Joshua Flanagan That is EXACTLY what my experience was the one time I tried to use JetBrains' memory profiler to figure out an OutOfMemory issue. I thought it was funny - and useless. The performance profiler works great, though. 01/26/2011 07:08 PM by Ryan Roberts Had similar experience a few years ago using the jetbrains memory profiler. Have a look at yourkit .net profile, it handles things much better. 01/26/2011 07:45 PM by smart guy Why do people try to fix OutOfMemoryException? Isn't it obvious that they only need to add some more memory. 01/26/2011 07:57 PM by smart guy Also, the name 'OutOfMemoryException' is a bit misleading. You can get the exception even if you have available memory. A better name would be CouldNotAllocateMemoryException. 01/26/2011 08:08 PM by Fujiy Smart guy, more memory dont resolve the problem. First because you can say this to Your client Anyway it won't work, this exception mean that don't exists continuous memory space at virtual memory 01/26/2011 09:38 PM by Frank Quednau The Jetbrains memory profiler has been immensely useful to me to clean out all the garbage of dangling references off static events, funny garbage collector handles, misbehaving 3rd party UI and OOMs due to running out of GDI objects and what not in a Winforms App. Irony or not, it can be a pretty useful tool. 01/26/2011 09:46 PM by NC @Erik - What's it have to do with resharper? 01/27/2011 07:58 AM by Icer @Fujiy: Never heard of ironic? I think smart guy is just trying to be funny. :) BTW: I think ANTS Profiler and Jetbrains Profiler are both excellent products. Both helped me a lot. 01/27/2011 10:29 AM by Erik @NC - I looked at the stack trace and saw ReSharper, which sync'd with my experiences with tool. I should have generalized to say 'JetBrains' instead. I was only kidding anyway. I love JetBrains tools when they aren't starved for RAM. 01/27/2011 03:12 PM by Dmitry Ornatsky Seen this as well. Too bad they don't have an x64 version. 01/27/2011 03:14 PM by NC @Erik - OHHH I only saw JetBrains, didn't see resharper in it. 01/27/2011 03:22 PM by Dmitry Ornatsky Oh, wait, looks like they DO have x64 version now. This should help. 01/31/2011 09:01 AM by Kevin Babcock That's why you should switch to Telerik JustCode. I've been using it since the early betas and love it WAY more than ReSharper or CodeRush. :) Comments have been closed on this topic.
