Is it possible to capture snapshots when profiling in PDSOE?

This question is not answered

Is it possible to create snapshots, so it will be possible to profile only a specific functionality at a time? Or at least a differencing tool to compare two .prof files.

  • I would typically wrap small portions of the code (or copy/paste snippets) into a test program.  Then I run the test program with profiling enabled.

    The only real challenge is when a complex set of parameters or a large dataset is used as an input to one portion of the profiled code which is of interest.

    In that case, I often save the dataset out to a file with WRITE-XML.  And my test program will read it back in again as a first step before doing the work that I want to have profiled.

  • Hi Joseph, at present in PDSOE there is no provision to compare two profiler sessions or create snapshots. There is a tool (Profiler Control tool) in Progress forum (https://community.progress.com/community_groups/openedge_general/w/openedgegeneral/1980.profiler-control-tool ). Is this something you are looking for?

    Thanks,
