Interpreting profiling data

When you launch an application built for profiling from the IDE or you import the profiling results from an application that previously ran, the QNX Analysis Perspective displays the profiling data. This perspective lets you view time measurements at various program scopes, compare measurements between different profiling sessions, and control data refreshing for active sessions.

The Profiler Sessions view displays all sessions for applications run with profiling instrumentation. The other views in the perspective show profiling details based on the selection in that first view.

This view: Shows:
Profiler Sessions view Application Profiler sessions
Execution Time view Function runtimes and call counts for specific threads and functions
Debug view Debugging information for all program components
Annotated source editor Time spent by your program in specific areas of code
Properties view Session or item properties
