Get execution times in timer ticks for profiled section of code



ExecutionTimes = NthSectionProfile.ExecutionTimeInTicks returns a vector of execution times, measured in timer ticks, for the profiled section of code. Each element of ExecutionTimes contains the difference between the timer reading at the start and the end of the section. The data type of the arrays is the same as the data type of the timer used on the target, which allows you to infer the maximum range of the timer measurements.

If you set the CodeProfilingSaveOptions parameter to 'SummaryOnly', NthSectionProfile.ExecutionTimeInTicks returns an empty array. To change that parameter, open the Configuration Parameters dialog box by pressing Ctrl+E, open the Verification pane under Code Generation, and change the Save options parameter to All data.

You can calculate the execution time in seconds using the formula ExecutionTimeInSecs=ExecutionTimeInTicks/TimerTicksPerSecond

To get a vector of execution times, measured in timer ticks, for the profiled section of code, use the ExecutionTimeInTicks property of the NthSectionProfile object.

ExecutionTimes = NthSectionProfile.ExecutionTimeInTicks;

Input Arguments

The NthSectionProfile is a coder.profile.ExecutionTimeSection object generated by the coder.profile.ExecutionTime property Sections.

Example: NthSectionProfile

Output Arguments
