View Result

To view the analysis result, use the following command:

advixe-cl -report survey

This command prints the analysis result into the terminal window.

Create Snapshot

Create a snapshot of the analysis results so that you can compare performance statistics before and after making changes in the target application's code. To create a snapshot run the following command:

advixe-cl --snapshot

The command creates snapshot in the current project directory with auto-generated name.

Re-run the Analysis

After making changes in the source code and recompiling the application, you need to re-run the analysis to see if the application performance changed as you expected. To re-run the analysis,

advixe-cl -collect survey <target>
