ÜberProf new featureProgrammatic Integration

time to read 2 min | 215 words

Well… I am still working done the list of stuff people request for the profiler (NH Prof, HProf, L2S Prof & EF Prof) , and one of the things that popped into the head of the list was wanting to have programmatic access to the profiler output. We aren’t talking about just the XML reports that are available, but to be able to get the data in a way that is easy to work with.

Well, here it is:


There is a new DLL in the profiler distribution, HibernatingRhinos.Profiler.Integration, where you can find the CaptureProfilerOutput class. That class will let you start the profiler, capture whatever happens in the middle, and finally stop and return you an instance of a report, containing all the data about what actually happened.

This is perfect if you want to use the profiler as part of your integration tests library. As an aside, you can also use the new DLL to programmatically parse (by using XML Serialization) the XML reports that you generate as part of your build, so you get very easy way to build rules around that report.
