With Glimpse, we can peek into all things server side. We can inspect ASP.NET, ASP.NET MVC, Entity Framework, ADO.NET and much more through plugins. Since many developers are making use of Windows Azure to host their web applications, we are happy to announce a first public preview of two Windows Azure tabs in Glimpse!
The Glimpse.WindowsAzure package will display runtime information for a Cloud Service or Web Site. Glimpse.WindowsAzure.Storage collects and displays information about traffic from and to storage and gives best-practice advice. More information about the information offered through these new tabs can be read on Maarten’s blog.
It would be great if you could give these two packages a try and give us feedback! Here’s how:
- NuGet packages are available from a feed on MyGet, https://www.myget.org/F/glimpse-windowsazure/.
- Sources can be found on GitHub.
- Comments, remarks and suggestions are welcomed through the issue tracker or a pull request.
Note that the Windows Azure tabs are still in a preview phase and rough edges may be in there. We’re still looking at load balanced environments. You can implement Glimpse’s IPersistenceStore but we would like to have a zero-configuration setup in place.
Enjoy the new year!
