Profiling Session

◷ Reading Time: 4 minutes

The profiling option in FlexRule Designer helps our support team to investigate an issue. In certain cases such as execution performance-related issues, we may use profiling to record and save a session.

Steps to Record a Profiling Session

Open your Project in FlexRule Designer

The profiling Session option is available in the Designer. Therefore, as the first step, open your project in FlexRule Designer.

1. Go to Home on the menu bar.

3. Select About tab.

Turn on Profiling Session

Turn on Profiling Session and you will be asked to provide a file name to save the session.

You can provide any preferred name. It will be saved as a .dtp file.

Once you give a name, click Save.

Then you will see that the Profiling Session is on. From this moment onward, every action you perform on FlexRule Designer will be recorded as a .dtp file.

Perform the Tasks to Record

Once you turn on the profiling session, go back to the project by clicking on the back arrow.

Then, carry on with the tasks that you need to record as a session. You can perform any task in FlexRule Designer that is required to be analyzed later. This may include debugging, running, creating a document, etc.

Turn off Profiling Session

Once you finish the actions that you need to record, turn off the profiling session.

There are two options:

  1. By navigating to Home –> About.

2. By clicking on Stop at the top.

Send the Recorded Session to the FlexRule Support Team

Once you stop recording the profiling session, multiple .dtp files will be zipped as one file and will be saved at the location you provided previously.

This is the file that the FlexRule support team requires to investigate reported issues further.

Please do not send the profiling session zip file in email/ support portal tickets due to its size.

This zip file of certain profiling sessions can be very large.
If so, you can use Google Drive/ Dropbox or any other file sharing service to upload the file and send us the link to download the file.
