Performance profiling is initiated by running the profctl utility on the target system, using the -start option. This utility (see "Security" for more details) considers the components to be profiled as arguments.
If the_actor was part of the system image:
% rsh trumpet arun profctl -start -b the_actor
Otherwise, if the_actor was loaded dynamically:
% rsh trumpet arun profctl -start -a the_actor aid
where aid is the numeric identifier of the actor (as returned by the arun or aps commands).
Several components may be specified to the profctl utility. See "Security" for more details.
Run the application.
