12.2 Setting up the profiler

Before a profiling session can start, several parameters must be set, using the function set-up-profiler. If the profiler is invoked before any call to set-up-profiler, it calls set-up-profiler implicitly without any arguments. In many cases that is what you want anyway, and in these cases you do not need to call set-up-profiler, but in some cases you will want to change something.

There are four main areas to consider: the symbols to be profiled, the time interval between samples, the kind of profiling required, and the format of the output.
