After you profile

After gathering the profiling data, you can change to the Application Profiler perspective, and begin to analyze the data. In the Execution Time view, after profiling a project, the results show as precise function execution time, and a runtime call graph for Function Instrumentation. The results show the time for each function when Call Count profiling is enabled.
