The Performance Engineering team at Esri is excited to release a new build of PerfQAnalyzer (PQA), build 172. This build further exposes the Workspace and FeatureClass using EditCommand script command; allowing the user to gather performance metrics for opening a database and feature class. To test this, compile the installed MyCommand sample and copy the MyCommand.dll output assembly to your <My Documents>\ArcGIS\ScriptCommands folder. Start the PQA and load the script named ‘Workpace, FeatureClass Broadcast Test.scr’ located in the sample folder. Edit the script, pointing to a valid Workspace and FeatureClass, then execute the script.
Additional information regarding this build pertains to licensing. The standalone version of the PQA now works with any ArcGIS Desktop basic or editing license; previous PQA builds required an editing license. The ArcMap version add-in version of the PQA does not check out a license, ArcMap checks out a license, this has been the licensing model since the original release of PQA. Lastly, as of this build (172), the PerfQA Analyzer for ArcGIS 10.3 requires .NET 4.5; all earlier versions of the use .NET 4.0.
