The profiler with the accessible, fast UI is now available for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 -- at no additional charge!
Getting access is super easy -- just click the button.
Superluminal is the only sampling profiler that displays the profiling data in a visual UI. Sampling data is displayed on a per-thread timeline, which allows you to see exactly what function is being called when, in what order, and what other functions are being called around it.
High frequency sampling (8 – 40 kHz, depending on platform) allows you to hit the ground running without the need to make any code modifications. Sampling can start right from the start of the application, allowing you to inspect application startup, including DLL loading, the static initialization phase and more.
The source window displays source code along with per line timing and thread state information. To drill down even deeper, a mixed-mode disassembly view lets you view per-instruction timing information. If no source code is available, the disassembly is displayed.
Superluminal is capable of isolating a specific portion of a capture. Investigate unexpected frame spikes, or zoom in to the startup phase of your application.
Understanding the complex interactions between threads in a program can be key in resolving performance issues. These complex interactions are visualized in an intuitive interactive interface that allows you to inspect blocking and unblocking callstacks and easily navigate between them.
Getting access is quick & painless! You’ll first need to verify your PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5 developer status by following the instructions below. Once verified, Superluminal will automatically install the PlayStation support for you.
Of course, if you have any questions, you can always contact us.
