trace enables you to monitor the application for errors and exception with out VS.NET IDE.
Trace works in both debug as well as release mode. The main advantage of using trace over
debug is to do performance analysis which can not be done by debug. Trace runs on a different
thread thus it does not impact the main code thread.

There is also a fundamental difference in thinking when we want
to use trace and when want to debug. Tracing is a process about getting
information regarding program's execution. On the other hand debugging
is about finding errors in the code.

To enable tracing on an ASP.NET page we need to put the ‘trace’ attribute to true on the page
attribute. In the behind code we can use the trace object to put tracing
