App profiling

An app is considered to have poor performance if it responds slowly, freezes/crashes, or consumes a lot of power.

To avoid the performance problems, make use of the profiling listed on this page to track where your app is making inefficient use of resources, such as the CPU, memory, battery, and network. App profiling provides graphical charts to monitor app performance or the inefficient use of device resources.

You can access these charts in the app profiling tab on the test session details page of App Automate dashboard.

Note: The App profiling feature is only available for Android tests. It is enabled by default.

CPU usage

Optimizing your app’s CPU usage has many advantages, such as providing a faster and smoother user experience and preserving device battery life. Track the CPU usage(%) by your app on the real devices

cpu

Memory consumption

Identify memory leaks or memory churn that can lead to app freezes, and even app crashes. Track the memory usage(MB) by your app on the real device

memory

Battery usage

Battery consumption shows you where and how processes are drawing current from the battery.Track the battery consumption(%) by your app on the real device

Network usage

View the network activity on a timeline, showing data sent/received. This lets you examine how and when your app transfers data, and optimize the underlying code appropriately. Track the network usage(kbps) by your app on the real device
