ProfilingLimitations today with FlashPlayer and AIR
ProfilingLimitations today with FlashPlayer and AIRVM onlyToday, using the profiler in Flash Builder only exposes VM relatedinformation.Debugger builds onlyThe existing Flash Builder profiler relies on debugger builds(performing slower than release builds).Not stableComplex content can also crash your profilingNo in-context testingBeing able to use release builds allows easy in-context testing.No visualizationThere is no existing tool allowing developers to easily spotissues in their content.No mobile profilingThere is no out of the box solution to profile mobile content(AIR) today.
Adobe ScoutRevolutionize the way you profileFlash content across desktop andmobile devices.Scout exposes granularinformation never exposedbefore to Flash developers.No code instrumentationneeded.Works with the release FlashPlayer and AIR runtime.
