This looks like a really nice tool. Maybe I can find the time to get it set up on my system?
- ETW Central
Over the last few years I’ve written over forty blog posts that discuss ETW/xperf profiling. I’ve done this because it’s one of the best profilers I’ve ever used, and it’s been woefully undersold and under documented by Microsoft. My goal has been to let people know about this tool, make it easier for developers and users to record ETW traces, and to make it as easy as possible for developers to analyze ETW traces.
- Xperf Basics: Recording a Trace (the ultimate easy way)
If your Windows computer is running slowly – if a program takes a long time to launch, if a game has a poor frame rate, or if an idle application uses too much CPU time – the best way to investigate is to record an Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) trace. An ETW trace records a wealth of information (CPU sampling, context switches, disk I/O, custom data, and much more) that allows most performance problems to be understood by a trained expert. If you’re not a trained expert then you can still record an ETW trace, and then share it with somebody who is.

This is a tool that records ETW traces, works around ETW performance bugs, allows configuration of trace recording options, works as a trace management UI, and more.
