Application profiling tools typically analyze the performance of an application in isolation. These tools provide timings for functions and sometimes on a per-line-of-code basis. This is useful, of course, but sometimes the analysis needs to look at a broader perspective. Embedded systems are usually complex, multi-process and, now, multi-processor.

Join Bill Graham and Elena Laskavaia as they explore the different forms of application analysis and introduce QNX's new application profiler capabilities that allow for application and system aware analysis.

This seminar will discuss different techniques for analyzing applications and show how QNX displays the results graphically in an Eclipse-based IDE. Attendees will learn about different approaches to:

  • profiling
  • data analysis
  • visualization of resultant profiles

Estimated length: 1 hour, including Q & A.

Who should attend: This seminar is best suited for software developers and engineers in the embedded industry.

Prerequisites: There are no prerequisites for this session.
