Android Profiler using Android Studio – Used For Xamarin Too

Always there is a necessity to work on performance issue, and when it comes to mobile device its very demanding.

Also when working with xamarin developer still thinks they are still in the android echo system, but the code gets transmitted to  Android ot iOS echo system & monitoring the performance & the bottlenecks becomes much harder to investigate.

Visual studio provides an inbuilt profiler but with a catch it comes only with enterprise license.  but most of us came to xamarin thinking its open source now & free tier service & support echo system is available in the market.

So android studio comes to rescue, so we can load the signed apk generated from the xamarin build & load into the android studio profiler and view the performance metrics on each activity & specific action.


in the next blog, I will try to explain the details of monitoring and performance consideration.
