Creating an Application Profiler session

When you create an Application Profiler session, you can profile an application to capture performance information after you've created your launch configuration.

Before you start:

To profile in this scenario, follow these steps:
  1. Prepare projects and launch configuration for Application Profiler to run:
  2. Launch the session (click either Run or Debug, depending on your launch configuration).
  3. The IDE changes focus to the Application Profiler perspective.
Now, the Application Profiler session is ready for you to use.
