SharePoint 2013 developer dashboard receives a complete makeover

The developer dashboard has received a complete makeover in 2013. In 2010, this was something appended to the end of the page, in 2013 it gives you a wealth of new information.

The first thing you will notice is that it pops up in a new window rather than being added to the page output. A separate web service is responsible for feeding the page with information; as you make additional request to the server, they appear in the list of requests. For several types of information you can drill in further to reveal the stack trace and for SQL you can get the execution plan being used. This information can be incredibly valuable when analyzing performance and other issues in SharePoint.

Since it’s still Beta software, not everything is complete, but here are some screen shots indicating what type of information you can expect to find.

    Thanks. I hadn’t checked out the new developer dashboard yet. Does it change much with RTM?

  2. RTM looks very much the same.
