  1. Download and install dotTrace Performance 4.5.1 profiler from http://www.jetbrains.com/profiler/download
  2. Start dotTrace and choose 'Profile'
  3. Select 'Standalone application' in the 'Application kind' list
  4. Point dotTrace to Visual Studio executable (devenv.exe)
  5. Make sure the following options are set:
    1. Progiling Profiling type: Tracing
    2. Meter kind: Wall time (performance counter)
    3. Start profiling immediately: on (if you're experiencing performance problems on Visual Studio startup or during solution loading) or off otherwise
  6. Press 'Run'
  7. If there's a performance problem during startup
    1. Wait while Visual Studio starts, open your solution
    2. Wait until the solution is loaded and ReSharper finishes loading caches
    3. Press 'Get Snapshot' button on the 'Control Profiling' window
  8. Otherwise
    1. Wait while Visual Studio starts, open your solution
    2. Press 'Start Profiling' button on the 'Control Profiling' window
    3. Perform actions which are slow with ReSharper (typing, switching between documents, building etc)
    4. Press 'Get Snapshot' button on the 'Control Profiling' window
  9. Save the resulting snapshot
  10. Compress the resulting snapshot using Zip
  11. Upload the snapshot to ftp://ftp.intellij.net/.uploads/. If upon uploading you're unable to see the snapshot in the remote folder, this is normal: this is the way privileges are set up for the FTP folder.
  12. Create a new issue in ReSharper issue tracker. In the issue, provide a short description of the performance problems you're experiencing, and specify the name of your snapshot.
