Visual Expert 2023 Released | PowerBuilder Performance Tuning

Visual Expert 2023 features new PowerBuilder Performance Tuning macros and major enhancements including 30% faster code analysis. 

PowerBuilder Performance Optimization

Visual Expert analyzes consolidated traces generated by multiple machines and user sessions during the execution of your PowerBuilder application. 

These performance statistics are combined with an in-depth code analysis to help developers investigate the response times of PowerBuilder objects, methods, functions, events, etc. 

How to Optimize PowerBuilder Code Performance?

Visual Expert 2023 comes with a new [Performance Analysis] feature to find:

Slowest pieces of code 

This macro helps to troubleshoot performance issues by listing the slowest objects, methods, events, etc. The PB developers can easily find objects with the longest execution time and fix bottlenecks.

Cumulated Execution Time  

This macro helps optimize the items that consume the most time during a session on average. The PB developers can also review the objects that may not be slow in execution and yet end up degrading the user experience due to a high frequency.

Most Executed Objects 

This macro helps to save execution time on frequently used features. The PB developers can examine or compare the most executed objects with the cumulative runtime results. They can prioritize the objects to address and enhance the user experience positively.
