Abl Profiler On Linux

Discussion in 'Development' started by catch.saravana, Apr 10, 2017.

  1. Progress Version: 11.6
    OS: Linux CentOS7

    I am aware that we have a tab on PDSOE dedicated for Profiler but would like to know how to use the same in Linux. Can you please point me to some documentation for the same?

    The profiler <> "ridiculous tool to present simple data in an overly complex GUI".

    You can profile a Linux session just the same as a Windows session -- by using the -profile startup parameter or by using the PROFILER session handle.

    Analyzing the output files can be accomplished by making them available to the overly complicated PDSOE GUI... or you can run a very simple report that will tell you the only thing you really need to know. Which is: what are my top N lines of code in terms of execution time?

    dbappraise.dbappraise.com/ppt/profiler.pptx
    dbappraise.dbappraise.com/profiler.tar

    I'll have updated version of these ready in a month or so...
     
  4. Awesome @TomBascom! Just couple of line of code changes and the report showed the issue in the very first line.

    In the ppt slide# 27 - I guess it should be {profiler/on.i "batch001"} & {profiler/off.i "batch001"}.

    Much easier than messing around with that crazy GUI gunk...

  6. Thanks for the ppt Tom, very interesting! I'd like to use it in order to profile pdfInclude, but I never found the time to do it properly. Hopefully this will help me :)
