# Are questions that ask for profiling tools considered on-topic?

This question was originally only asking for performance measurement tools. It has since been modified somewhat to ask for something closer to a review, but neither of the answers address this.

So:

1. Was the question on-topic in its original form?
2. Should the answers be flagged as irrelevant? (Neither is a code review, in my opinion.)

As the moderator who responded to your flag, it was correct. The original question did seem to ask for information on how to profile the application (off topic). However, I saw a good review question - performance is explicitly on topic. So I edited the title to ask for a performance review rather than a "how do I.." question.

I don't think the OP was asking about how to use profiling tools. The question was How do i I find the bottlenecks in my code? My read on it is that the OP wanted help finding his bottlenecks which would in fact be on-topic here.
