FxCop is a code analysis tool that checks .NET managed code assemblies for conformance to the Microsoft .NET Framework Design Guidelines. It uses reflection, MSIL parsing, and callgraph analysis to inspect assemblies for more than 200 defects in the following areas: naming conventions, library design, localization, security, and performance (see Rule Topics). FxCop includes both GUI and command line versions of the tool, as well as an SDK to create your own rules.
