The ProfileSettings class provides a way to programmatically access and modify the profiles element of the healthMonitoring section of a configuration file.

Event profiles determine how events are collected by ASP.NET and raised to providers.

This example demonstrates how to specify values declaratively for several attributes of the profiles section, which can also be accessed as members of the ProfileSettings class.

The following configuration file excerpt shows how to declaratively specify values for several properties of the profiles section.
