Defining Profile

The third and final stage of profile creation involves defining the profile, in terms of assigning it a name and description. To do this, on the Finish stage of the Add Profile page, perform these tasks:
  1. Enter a name for the profile in the Profile name field.
  2. Describe the profile in the Description field.
    Note: The description can include the purpose of profile creation.
  3. Set the Runtime Settings to improve the performance of the profiling process along with the default profiling options:
    Enter the value for Column threads per table, this option divides column processing into threads. These threads run concurrently in a single job. The default value is 1.

    For a single table or file, this value can be equal to the number of logical cores of the system. Whereas, for multiple tables or files, this value should be such that on multiplying it with number of tables, the result should be less than or equal to the number of cores available.

  4. For any kind of correction or update, you can go to the previous stage by clicking on the top right corner of the page.
  5. To save the profile and run is later, click Save.
    The profile is created and added to the Profiles page.
  6. To save and run the profile, click Save and Run.
    The profile is created and added to the Profiles page and the process of analysis begins on it. You can view details, such as status of the profile run on the Profiles page.
    Note: If you have limited access to server directories, your profile will not run. For the profile to run, give Directory Access to the path where you have installed spectrum.
