dotTrace 2017.1 Help

Configuring Profiling Session


After you select the profiling target, you can proceed to configuring a profiling session. Depending on how you run dotTrace, the profiling session options will be shown either in a separate window or on the right panel of the Home window. The options are divided into two groups:

These are options that depend on the application type. For example, if you profile a standalone app, you must provide a path to the app's executable. If you profile an ASP site, then you must specify the app's URL, and so on.

These options define how dotTrace should collect data during the profiling session. Typically, all you need to choose here is a profiling type: what profiling method to use (performance or timeline) and what data should be collected more accurately (in case of performance profiling): a number of calls or calls time.
