Glimpse is a popular, open-source web debugging and diagnostics tool that can be used to gain visibility into the performance of your ASP.Net or ASP.Net MVC applications. You can also integrate Glimpse with Application Insights.
Glimpse provides an intuitive user interface that helps you examine the performance data of an application. Like MiniProfiler, Glimpse adds a widget to your web pages so that you can view performance data as you browse through the web pages of your application. You can read my article on MiniProfiler here.
This article presents a discussion of how we can integrate Glimpse into an ASP.Net Core application.
