Profiling WCF service using net.tcp binding

Post by jbernard » Thu Sep 13, 2012 7:02 pm

I am trying to profile an IIS-hosted WCF service which supports both a http and a net.tcp binding.
The profiling session works fine when the client connects to the service using http but the client fails to connect using net.tcp://localhost/...

Does .NET Memory Profiler support profiling web services using the net.tcp connections?

If you run your service under .NET Memory Profiler it should function as normal, albeit a bit slower. The possibility to use a TCP binding should not be affected.

We will create a test project using a WCF TCP binding and see if we can reproduce the problem. However, if you have a test project reproducing the error (which you can share with us), that would make it easier for us to locate the problem. You can contact us at if you can provide us with a repro.

What settings are you using when your profile your service? Is the unmanaged resources tracker enabled?
