SharePoint 2013 comes with a new and improved developer dashboard that allows you to easily monitor:

  • Thread execution time
  • Call stack information and query text for each SQL Server query generated by the page
  • Call stack information for each WCF call
  • URL and job timer information
  • Execution start time
  • SPMonitoredScope statistics

In SharePoint 2013, the developer dashboard is easily accessible from the toolbar.


Don’t see the icon? That is because SharePoint 2013 does not enable the Developer dashboard by default. To enable the developer dashboard, run the following in the SharePoint 2013 Management Shell from your SharePoint development environment:

$content = ([Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPWebService]::ContentService)

$appsetting = $content.DeveloperDashboardSettings

$appsetting.DisplayLevel = [Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPDeveloperDashboardLevel]::On
