Focus your effort to make Unity c# compatible with .net profiling tools

Profiling & Optimization

-

-

There are so many professional profiling tools for c# out there and no one is compatible with Unity. As professional developer working on big projects I need to be able to take advantage of these tools.

Tools like dotTrace and dotMemory are essential since Unity profiling system is not enough to investigate the game bottlenecks.

If the Unity future is about IL2CPP instead, it would be still necessary to be able to work with professional tools like Glowcode.

    This is now getting all my votes; i severely miss being able to rely on ANTS for precise line-by-line analysis. Without it, optimization is a slow guessing game.

    Has anyone talked to someone from inside Unity's scripting team about this?

    Without access to il2cpp or professional tools, large standalone projects can be brought to a halt by just a handful of hanging references. We need access to tools for standalone projects that can show us what is going on in our heap allocations!

    I imagine that most Unity developers don't really know about those tools because, if they did, this request would be a top voted one. Hell, before Unity 5 most didn't even had access to the profiler!

    I wonder if we created a few posts about some of those tools and made some noise on social media we could get a few more votes or would we just get "I code on sublime because everything else slows me down" replies.

    By the way, are you (the OP) sebas77 on github? I read you site (sebaslab.com) and got some interesting ideas from your writing. Especially from your treatment of tasks. Thanks for your contributions!
