Stand alone dotTrace VS integrated in Rider


Are there any differences between dotTrace installed separately (stand alone version) and the one installed as a plugin in Rider?

Do I need to install/use stand alone dotTrace version for performance profiling in Rider?

Yes, there are some differences between these versions. Some part of functionality is implemented in standalone dotTrace only, for example - it is much more convenient to view Timeline snapshots in standalone Timeline Viewer compared to Rider.

You can use dotTrace plugin for Rider without standalone dotTrace, but if you use Rider on Windows, we recommend using both these versions simultaneously: you can take snapshots with Rider plugin and then open them in standalone dotTrace viewers (via context menu in Rider).
