Description Jaroslav Tulach 2008-11-14 14:11:41 UTC
A button in toolbar to start, stop profiling. After turning on, the system starts to capture thread dumps from the 
running IDE. The user can work with the IDE, emulating the action which he knows is slow and then turn the self 
profiling off. At the moment the system generates standard NetBeans Profiler snapshot, shows it to the user and allows 
him to analyze it or attache it to issuezilla.

Also consider that the toolbar button can't be pressed when a modal dialog is opened. Make sure it also works with some
keyboard shortcut...
Comment 2 J Bachorik 2009-02-04 12:38:00 UTC
fixed -

The action gets Alt-Shift-Y shortcut. For modal dialogs there is a possibility to add 
"-J-Dorg.netbeans.modules.profiler.actions.SelfSamplerAction.sniff=true" when starting the IDE to be able to invoke the
action using AltGr (the right alt key) - however, this option should be used with caution as it doesn't respect the
IDE-wide shortcut configuration.
