Visual Execution Profiler

The Visual Execution Profiler enables you to quickly report on:

  • The most frequently called functions in a running application
  • Tasks in an application that are taking more time than expected
  • Which functions are taking the most time in an application

The Profiler only works with MS Native Windows applications, but can be used under WINE (Linux and Mac) to debug standard Windows applications deployed in a WINE environment

The Profiler can generate a report that shows how these functions are called in relation to the application; the following image shows how one function is taking most of the overall time recorded, and how that is broken up into some of the functions that it calls

  • The Profiler, or sampler, is available in the Enterprise Architect Professional, Corporate, Business and Software Engineering, System Engineering and Ultimate editions
