Description

The PROFILE command is used to invoke Lianja's profiling functionality. Profiling produces input/output, locking and procedure call statistics for a particular application or part of an application. This information can be used for analysis to enable application optimization and general performance tuning. The profiling information can be output to the screen, a file or a printer using the LIST PROFILE and DISPLAY PROFILE commands.

<prgfile>

The <prgfile> is the name of a .prg Lianja/VFP script file.

The SET PROFILE command can also be used to enable, disable and control profiling. Please see the LIST PROFILE command for details of the statistics included in the log. CLEAR PROFILE is used to reset the log.
