Turning on the Developer Dashboard in SharePoint 2010

The developer dashboard is a great new feature that developers can use to aid them in tuning performance on a page.  This new functionality adds information to the bottom of any page in SharePoint that displays performance information and what SQL queries were executed to display the page.  To my knowledge, there is currently no way in the UI to turn this on, so you can do this with a quick x64 console application.  This is soon to become a quite popular code snippet I am sure.

SPPerformanceMonitor performanceMonitor = SPFarm.Local.PerformanceMonitor;

performanceMonitor.DeveloperDashboardLevel = SPPerformanceMonitoringLevel.On;

All you need is those two lines of code.  When you are done with it, simply set the monitoring level to Off.

I wonder if this can be done using the new Client Object Model. If so, that would presumable be a simple but effective bit of javascript.

That's a very good point.  I need to check the client OM and see if those objects are available.

Find the detail notes on the developer dashboard in my point of view, this also may help.
