Starting a profiling session

Starting a MobiLink Profiler session begins the collection of data and saves the data to a profiling database.


Start your consolidated database and MobiLink server, if they are not already running.

  1. From the MobiLink Profiler, click File » Begin Profiling Session. This starts the collection of data.

  2. A MobiLink Profiler connection starts like a synchronization connection to the MobiLink server. For all MobiLink Profiler sessions, the script version is set to for_ML_Monitor_only.

    The Connect To MobiLink Server window should be completed as follows:

    • User   Type the name of the MobiLink user for the connection. A user name must be supplied, but if you started the MobiLink server with -zu+, then it does not matter which MobiLink user you supply because unrecognized MobiLink user names are added automatically to the ml_user table upon synchronization.

    • Password   Type a password for the connection. This must be the correct password for the MobiLink user you specify. Leave this field blank if the MobiLink user does not have a password.

    • Host   The network name or IP address of the computer where the MobiLink server is running. By default, the host is the computer where the MobiLink Profiler is running. You can use localhost if the MobiLink server is running on the same computer as the MobiLink Profiler.

    • Protocol   This should be set to the same network protocol that the MobiLink server is using for synchronization requests.

    • Port   This should be set to the same network port that the MobiLink server is using for synchronization requests.

    • Encryption   If you chose HTTPS or TLS for the protocol, this box is enabled. Choose an encryption type from the dropdown list.

      To use HTTPS and TLS, you must have MobiLink client-side data stream encryption installed on the computer running the MobiLink Profiler. For more information about security, see MobiLink client/server communications encryption.

      Voir Separately licensed components.

    • Trusted Certificate File   If you chose HTTPS or TLS for the protocol, specify the name of the trusted certificate file to be used for secure connections to the MobiLink server. For Windows platforms, the trusted certificate store is used if a trusted certificate file is not supplied. Non-Windows platforms require that a trusted certificate file be specified for a secure connection.

    • Additional Protocol Options   Specify optional network parameters in this field. The allowed values depend on the connection stream type. Multiple parameters should be separated by a semicolon.

      All valid MobiLink client network protocol options are supported, except for those already set in this window, such as host, port and trusted certificate.

      See MobiLink client network protocol options.

  3. Start synchronizing.

  4. Click the Pause button to pause automatic scrolling of the Chart and Utilization graph information.


The MobiLink Profiler starts collecting data and the profiling data appears as it is collected.
