C# 7 and .NET Core 2.0 High Performance

By: Ovais Mehboob Ahmed Khan

Overview of this book

While writing an application, performance is paramount. Performance tuning for realworld applications often involves activities geared toward fnding bottlenecks; however, this cannot solve the dreaded problem of slower code. If you want to improve the speed of your code and optimize an application's performance, then this book is for you. C# 7 and .NET Core 2.0 High Performance begins with an introduction to the new features of what?explaining how they help in improving an application's performance. Learn to identify the bottlenecks in writing programs and highlight common performance pitfalls, and learn strategies to detect and resolve these issues early. You will explore multithreading and asynchronous programming with .NET Core and learn the importance and effcient use of data structures. This is followed with memory management techniques and design guidelines to increase an application’s performance. Gradually, the book will show you the importance of microservices architecture for building highly performant applications and implementing resiliency and security in .NET Core. After reading this book, you will learn how to structure and build scalable, optimized, and robust applications in C#7 and .NET.

Monitoring Application Performance Using Tools

Monitoring application performance is a general process in big organizations to continuously monitor and improve the application experience for their customers. This is an important factor that revolves around different tools and techniques to measure the application performance and make decisions quickly.

In this chapter, we will learn some key indicators that are recommended to monitor the .NET Core application as well as explore App Metrics to get the real-time analytics and telemetry information about the key indicators.

In this chapter, we will look at the following topics:

  • Key metrics to monitor application performance
  • Tools and techniques to measure application performance, which includes:
    • Exploring App Metrics
    • Setting up App Metrics used with ASP.NET Core applications
    • Setting up Grafana and using the App Metrics...
