Performance Analyzer is a graphical data-analysis tool that analyzes performance data collected by the Collector. The Collector starts when you profile an application from Performance Analyzer, use the collect command, or use the collector commands in dbx. The Collector gathers performance information to create an experiment during the execution of a process, as described in Chapter 3, Collecting Performance Data.
Performance Analyzer reads in such experiments, analyzes the data, and displays the data in tabular and graphical displays.
