Developer Tools & Platforms Performance [from support.microsoft.com]

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;974348 - great stuff ms.

Note: This article discusses a scenario that may be addressed by Microsoft Advisory Services.

Microsoft Advisory Services is an hourly fee-based, consultative support option that provides proactive support beyond your break-fix product maintenance needs. This is a remote, phone-based support option that includes working with the same technician for assistance with issues like product migration, code review, or new program development. This service is typically used for shorter engagements, and is designed for developers and IT professionals who do not require the traditional onsite consulting or sustained account management services that are available from other Microsoft support options. This article also provides some self-help resources for this scenario.

For additional information on Microsoft Advisory Services, including on how to engage, refer to this Microsoft web page:

Microsoft can provide Performance Tuning services for your software solutions, Microsoft development technologies and platforms such as Common Language Runtime (CLR) framework, Internet Information Server (IIS), developer tools like Visual Studio.NET, and other Microsoft Software Development related tools and solutions. Example includes:
IIS/ASP performance diagnostics and tuning, such as CPU spikes and slow user experience.
CLR performance debugging, profiling, detailed analysis, and architectural best practices.
Team Foundation Server performance issues, such as Work Item Tracking, Source Control, Reporting, and Server Responsiveness.

Below is a list of self-help resources for this scenario. These resources may also be used by Microsoft Support Engineers during an Advisory Services engagement.
