Profiling XSLT Stylesheets


The XSLT Profiler is available only in Stylus Studio XML Enterprise Suite.

In addition to debugging tools for XSLT, Stylus Studio provides the XSLT Profiler, a tool that helps you evaluate the efficiency of your XSLT. By default, the performance metrics gathered by the XSLT Profiler are displayed in a preformatted report, like the one shown Figure 258:

Figure 258. XSLT Profiler Report

The report format is controlled by the default XSLT stylesheet, profile.xsl, in the \Stylus Studio\bin directory. You can customize this stylesheet as required. You can save XSLT Profiler reports as HTML.



XSLT and XQuery Profiler reports use the same XSLT stylesheet.

In addition to generating the standard XSLT Profiler report, you can save the raw data generated by the Profiler and use this data to create your own reports. See Enabling the Profiler for more information about this procedure.
