Monte Carlo profiling is a statistical technique used to determine which functions are being called on your run-time image and how often.

You can use the results from this technique to find functions that are good candidates for optimization because optimizing the most frequently used functions likely has the greatest overall impact on performance. For more information, see Monte Carlo Profiling.

The following steps describe how to enable Monte Carlo profiling for your run-time image using the Platform Builder IDE.
