The profiler wizard lets you analyze the result of a profiling session. It helps you optimize your system by pointing out the features where your system spends most of its time.

Before using the profiler wizard you must have generated a Run-time information record. A Run-time information record is generated by a profiler when a program is executed under its control. Most of the time, the Run-time information record is generated by the profiler integrated into EiffelStudio. See How to profile a system for more information about how to generate a Run-time information record with the integrated profiler.

Note: You can also use a Run-time information record generated by an external profiler such as GNU's gprof, Pure Atricia's Quantify, Visual C++ profiler, etc.

The diagram below summarizes the execution steps of the profiler wizard.
