Open code execution profiling report and specify display of time measurements (MATLAB code generation)



report(myExecutionProfile) opens the code execution profiling report using default display options.


report(myExecutionProfile, name-value pair) opens the report with display options specified by the name-value character vector pairs.

To create a report that displays time in microseconds (10-6 seconds) with a precision of three decimal places, select options by using name-value pairs.

report(myExecutionProfile, ...
    'Units','Seconds', ...
    'ScaleFactor','1e-06', ...

To create a report that compares execution-time performance against a baseline, use the baseline option.

report(myExecutionProfile, ...
    'baseline', executionProfileBaseline)

Input Arguments

collapse all

The myExecutionProfile is a workspace variable that you create by using the getCoderExecutionProfile function.

Example: myExecutionProfile

Name-Value Arguments

Specify optional pairs of arguments as Name1=Value1,...,NameN=ValueN, where Name is the argument name and Value is the corresponding value. Name-value arguments must appear after other arguments, but the order of the pairs does not matter.

Before R2021a, use commas to separate each name and value, and enclose Name in quotes.

Example: 'Units','Seconds'

Time measurements displayed in seconds or timer ticks.

Example: 'Units','Seconds'

To display measurements in microseconds, use a scale factor name-value pair 'ScaleFactor', '1e-6'. The value must be a character vector representation of a number that is a power of 10. For example, '1', '1e-6', or '1e-9'. Default value is '1e-9'. To specify the scale factor, you must also specify 'Units', 'Seconds'.

Example: 'ScaleFactor','1e-9'

Use the decimal convention utilized by the ANSI® C function sprintf, for example, '%1.2f'. Default is '%0.0f'. To specify the numeric format, you must also specify 'Units', 'Seconds'.

Example: 'NumericFormat','%0.0f'

The executionProfileBaseline is the workspace variable that contains baseline execution-time metrics.

Example: 'baseline',executionProfileBaseline
