pair arguments in any order as
SaveStates— Save model states to file
By default, the profiler does not save the states of the model. Enabling this parameter configures the profiler to save the states to a MAT-file.
SaveSimscapeStates— Save Simscape™ states to file
Enable this parameter to save Simscape states to a MAT-file.
SaveJacobian— Save model Jacobian
Option to log the solver Jacobian matrices to memory. This option is useful for simulations that use implicit solvers. For a comparison of solvers, see Compare Solvers.
StartTime— Profiler start time
Time, in seconds, of the simulation that the profiler starts analyzing the model. This is not the same as the start time of the simulation.
StopTime— Profiler stop time
Time, in seconds, of the simulation to which the profiler should profile the model. By default, the analysis continues until the end of the simulation. Changing this parameter does not change the stop time of the model which you specify in the Model Configuration Parameters.
A value less than the configured stop time of the model stops the
profiling and simulation at
BufferSize— Memory impact of logging
Maximum number of events that are logged. If the number of logged
events reaches this value and memory is available, increase
BufferSize. If memory is limited, consider
lowering the value.
TimeOut— Maximum time to wait for solver to resume
Time, in seconds, to wait before the profiler stops running. This option is useful in situations where the simulation is unable to proceed. The profiler waits for the specified time and quits if no progress has been made.
OpenSP— Open the Solver Profiler dialog box
Option to open the Solver Profiler dialog box after profiling has completed.
DataFullFile— Path and name of saved results
By default, the profiling results are saved in a MAT-file named
model_@_dd_Month_yyyy_hh_mm_ss.mat in the current
working folder. You can specify a different file name by which to save
the results in the current working folder. To save the file in a
different location, specify the full path of the file, including the

Path and name of the MAT-file where the results of the
profiling operation are stored as MAT file. By default, they are
stored in the current working folder with a file name having the

A high-level summary of the results of the profiling operation, returned as a structure. The summary provides an overview of the performance of the simulation and health of the model.

|Number of solver exceptions||nonnegative scalar||Total number of solver exceptions encountered during a simulation. These exceptions are events where the solver is unable to solve the model states to the specified accuracy. As a result, the solver runs adjusted trials which increase computational cost.|
