Throughout the AQtime Help system, we will use the generic term profiling describing the use of any of AQtime profilers. Usually, but not always, a complete profiling operation involves the following steps:
- Compiling your application with debug information
- Opening your application in AQtime
- Controlling what to profile and when to profile
- Selecting the profiler to run
- Running the selected profiler and analyzing the results
For more information on each step, read the Getting Started topics listed below. Note that the Getting Started topics describe general profiling approach. You may need to perform some additional operations depending on your application type. For instance, if you profile an ASP.NET application, you may need to select the appropriate profiling mode. For more information, see the How To section of this help file (Table of Contents window --> How To)see the How To section of AQtime's help file (Table of Contents window --> SmartBear's AQtime --> How To) see the How To section of AQtime's help file (Table of Contents window --> SmartBear's AQtime --> How To).
