Default Settings for Analyzer

The default settings for Analyzer are controlled through .er.rc defaults files. The Analyzer processes directives from several of these files, in the following order:

Some settings are accumulated from all .er.rc files, including pathmap and addpath. For other settings, the last .er.rc file read takes precedence. The .er.rc settings in the current directory take precedence over the .er.rc settings in your home directory, which take precedence over the .er.rc settings in the system-wide version of the file.

Saving Performance Analyzer Settings

In the Performance Analyzer, you can create and update an .er.rc file by clicking the Save button in the Set Data Presentation dialog, which you can open from the View menu. Saving the settings from the Set Data Presentation dialog box not only affects subsequent invocations of the Analyzer, but also the er_print utility and er_src utility because the utilities all use the .er.rc file to determine default settings.

Settings in the .er.rc File

The .er.rc files can contain settings for the following:

For details about the commands you can use in the .er.rc files, see Commands That Set Defaults and Commands That Set Defaults Only For the Performance Analyzer.
