Txt file instead of .TRCXML [message #129443] Mon, 28 April 2008 15:31 Go to next message

Hi,

I am trying to get an execution trace and CPU usage for a simple java
application and dump the result to a text file. Is that a supported
feature?

Also is it not possible to collect more than one kind of information from
the same execution? (for example execution trace and CPU usage)

The problem I am having is first.....
.......... On the profile Dialog
............... Under the monitor tab
...................... I can't select more than one item. (e.g Execution
Time Analysis and Probe insertion)

I would appreciate any help you may have for me or point me to a good
tutorial.

PS: This is a repost I thought may be I will clarify my question.

Thanks,
EB

There are some options in the Viewers to export the data into various
formats. You can import the generated TRCXML file into the workbench
(using the Eclipse Import option) and experiment with this.

Or, you can try to convert the XML file yourself. Not very complex, but
it will take you some time.

This limitation is by design with the new Java 1.5+ profiler.

Hi Asaf,

Thankyou very much for taking the time to answer my questions.

So if I understand you correctly I can only collect one kind of information
at a time? Does it mean I can get the execution trace & CPU usage *at the
same time* if I use older versions of Java? Earlier than 1.5?

Also, I am new to Eclipse and tptp can you please recomend a tutorial that
would help me use tptp 4.4 fully? The ones I have been able to find are for
older versions of tptp and the screen captures do not look like the windows
that I have.

Cheers,

Edna

Almost :)
You need to use the "old" TPTP data collector with a Java 1.5 or earlier
JVM. When you use TPTP (4.4.1) with Java 1.5, the Monitor page (in the
Profiler launch configuration) should show 2 data collectors: Java 1.5+
and Java 1.5-. You can also try this with a Java 1.4 JVM...

But - before doing that, please think whether you *really* need multiple
data collectors for the same run? Does this use-case really makes sense?

There are a few tutorials in the TPTP web site. I am not aware of
anything newer.
