Actions Modified




When used with collect action, report is supplied with source code folded like a snapshot. Once set, this option triggers a flag in project configuration that prevents deleting cache with each analysis run unless you manually disable it.


Create a read-only snapshot. Include performance data, sources, and binaries. Save the snapshot to the tmp directory. Name the snapshot myAdvisorProjSnapshot.advixeexpz.

advisor --snapshot --project-dir=./advi_results --pack --cache-sources --cache-binaries -- ./bin/myApplication

Run a Survey analysis and keep source cache.

advisor --collect=survey --cache-sources --project-dir=./advi_results -- ./bin/myApplication
