Capturing some profiling data

In this section of the guide, we will start a capture session, run a program, and end the capture session. Obtaining a capture confirms that data collection is working.

Follow these steps:

  1. Select the name and location of the capture file using the red circle. Click OK. You will be promoted for a location and filename to save the capture as shown in this screenshot:

  2. Click the red stop sign icon ends the capture.

Without any source code or software images, the Call Paths, Functions, and Code tabs do not provide much information. Instead, these tabs show process names and process ID values with some blank screens and unknown code messages. This will improve when Streamline has the software images and source. In Profiling an example application, we will download an example application to profile, and learn how to insert markers in the code for Streamline to visualize.
