We wanted to see what happens inside our build, so we developed the build monitor, a whole new way to experience your development. The IncrediBuild build monitor replaces your old text output with a sleek intuitive graphic UI. Forget about tediously digging into long textual outputs. Don’t look for errors, bottlenecks and dependencies, see them right in front of you.
Go from piles of hard to
Into a graphically accurate
representation of your build.
Turn Back Time and Replay Your Build Process.
Rewind a recording of your build and see how it performed and how things transpired. Share your build execution so that other team members can replay it too and further analyze its results
Switch between 4 different display types
The Build Monitor enables you to view your build progress and output through four different display types. Switch between displays to get the full picture of your build in the most convenient way for you.
Sit back and relax as your build files transform into colorful bars. Each color represents the status of the relevant file so you can see which were built without a problem and which weren’t.
See the entire build’s output text, similar to what would have been generated by Microsoft Visual Studio C++ builds.
Clearly distinguish between each project’s/configuration’s standard output from the executed tools, including warning and error messages.
Get a high-level overview of all the information and statistics on the current build in one place.
Easily identify gaps, errors and bottlenecks
No more looking for a needle in an output stack for you. Easily improve your build quality by quickly detecting tasks with long durations, errors, warnings, bottlenecks, dependencies, gaps and more at a glance of an eye.
Customize your own build graph
Choose the parameters you care about and turn them into a visual graph. Keep visual track of more than a dozen of relevant KPI like CPU Usage, tasks ready to be executed, memory usage, I/O and much more.
Seamlessly Integrated into the Visual Studio experience
IncrediBuild is already integrated into Visual Studio. Enjoy the build monitor’s visualization capabilities directly from the comfort of Visual Studio.
ZOOM IN AND OUT
Go down to the tiniest detail in your build like each task’s status or see the output per project and the compile status per project. Go back to your build history to examine old build executions.
A UNIFIED WAY TO GATHER
It doesn’t matter what type of execution you’re running on which platform. The build monitor provides a unified way to gather and compare data regardless where it originates from.
Individual task details
Hover over a bar to see the task’s command line. Double clicking the task will take you directly to the relevant textual output.
Easily search for specific data such as project name, file names, and custom steps.
Detect sequential executions and turn them into highly parallel ones.
Learn how to use IncrediBuild's build monitor to visualize your build like never before and optimize it with ease.
