Pause and resume a profiling session

Occasionally, having too much data is the same as having no data at all. You can take control of when to enable profiling during the execution of an application using the Pause and Resume icons in the toolbar.

Take a snapshot of a profile session

This feature lets you freeze the current state of the Application Profiler data while the actual session data keeps changing. The snapshot data remains frozen and can later be compared with the final results, or other snapshots of the same session. However, in the Execution Time view, this action also automatically switches to a comparison mode to dynamically show the updated difference between the current state and the snapshot.

To take a snapshot:

  1. In the Profiler Sessions view, select a running profile and click the icon from the toolbar Take Snapshot of the running session.

Create a sample profile session

A sample profile session will provide you with sample data to quickly evaluate features of the application profiler.

To create a sample profile session:

  1. In the Profiler Sessions view, select a running profile and click the icon Create Sample session from the toolbar.

Export a profiler session

In the Momentics IDE for BlackBerry, you can export your profile data information from the Profile Sessions view. When exporting your profiling analysis information, the Momentics IDE lets you export the results in the format you specified during export.

To export a profiler session:

  1. In the Profiler Session view, select a profiler session and right-click.
  2. Select Export.

    Screen showing exporting application profiler session data.

  3. Select the session(s) that you want to export.
  4. In the Output File field, specify the name and location for the output file.
  5. In the Output area, select the output type: .csv or .xml.
  6. Click Finish.

Later, you can import data (see Create a profiler session by importing profiler data).
