Profiling Applications With AQTime

Applies to AQTime 8.81, last modified on January 18, 2022

AQTime allows application developers to measure the performance, memory and resource allocations and other characteristics of applications and helps identify and eliminate bottlenecks.

The profiling process includes several steps. You typically begin with creating an AQTime project and defining the application modules, classes and functions you want to profile. You can choose from a variety of profilers and select the level of details collected by the profiler. The profiling can be started in parallel with your application, or you can attach the profiler to an already running process. After you stop the profiling, AQTime displays the aggregated information in several views that help visualize performance and other issues.
