Exporting Results

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

AQTime includes several ways to export data: you can export data that is shown in individual AQTime panels or you can export the entire result sets.

Exporting Entire Result Sets

Exporting Data to and Importing Them From Binary Files

Using items of the Explorer panel context menu, you can save profiling results to a binary file with the .aqr extension and load them from this file any time later. To save results, right-click the desired result set in the panel and then choose Save to File from the context menu. Load From File will retrieve results saved to a binary file this way.

You can also export results to .aqr files while working with AQTime via COM. See IaqAQtimeResults Object.

Exporting to XML Files

Export of results in the .xml format is supported if AQTime is launched from the command line. Use the /ExportRes command-line argument for this. For example:

"C:\Work\SmartBear\AQTime\Bin\AQTime.exe" "C:\My App\MyApp.aqt" /r /et:xml,"D:\Profiling Results\Index.xml"

For a detailed overview of the XML output produced by AQTime, see Structure of XML Results. This may be necessary if you want to process the resultant XML files to meet your specific needs.

Exporting Data to a Database

To export a result set to a database, right-click it in the Explorer pane and choose Export to Database from the context menu. In the ensuing dialog, specify the database connection settings and click OK. For detailed information, see Exporting Profiling Results to Database.

Note that you can also export results to a database by working with AQTime via COM. See Exporting Results to Database via COM.


Exporting Data of Individual Panels

Report, Details, Disassembler and Event View Panels

From the Report panel profiling results can be copied to the clipboard or exported to a file in any of the following formats: Microsoft Excel, tab-delimited text, HTML or XML (viewable in all modern browsers or in any browser based on the Microsoft WebBrowser control).

To save results:

  • Select the rows you want to export (you can use Shift and Ctrl for multi-selection. See Selecting Several Records in a Panel).

  • Right-click somewhere in the panel and choose Save Selection from the context menu. This will open the dialog where you can specify the file format and the file name. After you did these, close the dialog by pressing Save.

To save all results (regardless of the selected rows) use the Save All context menu item.

To copy results to the clipboard, select the desired rows and then choose Copy from the context menu. 

When you save or copy the profiling results from the Report panel, column headers are always included in their current order on the panel. When exporting the results of the Performance profiler to XML, AQTime exports both Report and Details results.

This is what concerns the Report panel. Besides export of results in the Report panel, you can also export the contents of the Details, Event View and Disassembler panels to the Excel’s XLS (Details), XML (Event View and Disassembler), HTML and tab-delimited text files. To do this, multi-select the desired lines in the corresponding panel and then choose Save Selection from the panel's context menu. To save all lines rather than selected only, choose the Save All menu item.

Call Tree Panel

To store the results displayed in the Call Tree panel, right-click within the panel to invoke the context menu and then choose Save All. This will bring up the dialog where you can specify the name, path and type of the file. The following file formats can be used: XML, HTML and tab-delimited text.
