<h1>Profiling Your Application</h1>

<p>The Profiler Class will display benchmark results, queries you have run, and $_POST data at the bottom of your pages.
This information can be useful during development in order to help with debugging and optimization.</p>

<h2>Initializing the Class</h2>

<p class="important"><strong>Important:</strong>&nbsp; This class does <kbd>NOT</kbd> need to be initialized. It is loaded automatically by the
<a href="../libraries/output.html">Output Class</a> if profiling is enabled as shown below.</p>

<h2>Enabling the Profiler</h2>

	<p>To enable the profiler place the following function anywhere within your <a href="controllers.html">Controller</a> functions:</p>

	<p>When enabled a report will be generated and inserted at the bottom of your pages.</p>

	<p>To disable the profiler you will use:</p>

<h2>Setting Benchmark Points</h2>

	<p>In order for the Profiler to compile and display your benchmark data you must name your mark points using specific syntax.</p>

	<p>Please read the information on setting Benchmark points in <a href="../libraries/benchmark.html">Benchmark Class</a> page.</p>

<h2>Enabling and Disabling Profiler Sections</h2>

	<p>Each section of Profiler data can be enabled or disabled by setting a corresponding config variable to <var>TRUE</var> or <var>FALSE</var>.  This can be done one of two ways.  First, you can set application wide defaults with the <dfn>application/config/profiler.php</dfn> config file.</p>

	<code>$config['config']&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;= FALSE;<br />
	$config['queries']&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;= FALSE;<br /></code>

	<p>In your controllers, you can override the defaults and config file values by calling the <kbd>set_profiler_sections()</kbd> method of the <a href="../libraries/output.html">Output class</a>:</p>

	<code>$sections = array(<br />
	&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;'config' &nbsp;=> TRUE,<br />
	&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;'queries' => TRUE<br />
	&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;);<br />
	<br />

	<p>Available sections and the array key used to access them are described in the table below.</p>
