Using the Application Profiling Wizard

You can use the Application Profiling Wizard in Sybase Central to perform a diagnostic tracing session for profiling applications. The wizard gathers data on how your applications are interacting with the database and provides you access to the data and with indexing recommendations, if relevant.


You must have the DIAGNOSTICS system role, and the MANAGE PROFILING, SERVER OPERATOR, and SELECT ANY TABLE system privileges.

Contexte et remarques

The Application Profiling Wizard cannot be used to create a tracing session for a database running on Windows Mobile. You must use the Database Tracing Wizard.

When you use the Application Profiling Wizard in Sybase Central, the wizard automatically creates a tracing database with the same name you specify in the wizard for the analysis file.

For more information about the indexing recommendations returned from the Application Profiling Wizard, see Index Consultant recommendations.

  1. In Sybase Central, use the SQL Anywhere 16 plug-in to connect to the database.

  2. Click Mode » Application Profiling.

    If the Application Profiling Wizard does not appear, click Application Profiling » Open Application Profiling Wizard.

  3. Follow the instructions in the Application Profiling Wizard.

    The wizard:

    • creates a local database to hold diagnostic tracing information

    • starts the network server

    • starts a tracing session

    • prompts you to run the application you would like to profile


The wizard returns its results and allows you to review the data it gathered during the tracing session.
