Abstract

The use of profilers is a common approach for locating bottlenecks in software performance. Existing profilers typically generalize memory consumption and CPU usage. This work is dedicated to profiling-based identification of performance problems for specific moments of program execution. By combining conventional profiling with monitoring of user actions (e.g. mouse and keyboard inputs), a more fine-grained analysis of program behavior is possible. The calculation of coverage levels for GUI tests will also be available. The current state of this work describes a proposed solution. Realization of a prototype implementing the approach is currently ongoing.
