Enabling Profiler

Before you can generate a Profiler report for an application, you must enable Profiler in the properties of a project.

To enable Profiler for a project:

  1. In the IDE, navigate to your project's properties.
  2. Click the COBOL tab, and check Enable profiler.
  3. Click OK.
Note: If you are collecting Profiler statistics, you must not compile your application with both Enable profiler and Enable code coverage checked. Compiling with Enable code coverage adds instrumentation information to your build outputs which is designed for use by the Code Coverage utility. This extra information could affect the results of your Profiler run.

If you have both options enabled, to collect Profiler statistics you need to disable Enable code coverage first, recompile your application and then start your application using Debug > Run with Micro Focus Profiler.
