From what I&#39;ve seen, the call graph results only indicated how long it took to execute not when it was executed.

Been exported as an UML this will present only a part of all possible calls and another profiling run may well end with a different diagram.<br /> Any good reason for the functionality you are asking for?

Profiling results provide you with the information about actual execution flow that happened during the given profiling session. This flow can be examined via the Call Tree results panel.<br /> <br /> There is a special Sequence Diagram Link profiler in AQtime that creates a UML-style diagram in either Visio or Word. This diagram shows all possible execution flows starting from the specified point and not all possible flow may be executed during runtime.<br /> I&nbsp;would recommend to read AQtime documentation for this profiler to be aware about its specifics / limitations. http://smartbear.com/forums/f59/t88768/RE-Generating-a-UML-sequence-diagram 4/17/2014 4:15:38 AM Alexei Karas ec26c009-771e-4911-906a-b9b88b795d97 RE: How do I compare execution flow between two sources? Hi Adrian,<br /> <br /> &gt; Could you please expand on what you mean by &quot;... and compare results using database reporting means&quot;? &nbsp;What exactly do you mean by that?<br /> <br /> I meant that you can query database to get profiling results or some summary figures as per your needs, or you can process data using, for example OLAP cubes, etc.<br /> <br /> &gt; Two AQtime instances can be opened on one machine as I&#39;ve done it.<br /> Good to know, thanks. In this case you can open profiling results on the same machine and compare them visually (manual visual comparison :) ).<br /> http://smartbear.com/forums/f59/t88688/RE-How-do-I-compare-execution-flow-between-two 4/17/2014 4:07:10 AM Alexei Karas 2cf1e061-fdd4-4f26-84f5-09a71df8684f QSort vs Bucket Sort video I was looking at the video shown here:<br /> <br /> http://support.smartbear.com/screencasts/aqtime/comparing-profiler-results/<br /> <br /> And I noticed that there seems to be an erroneous conclusion stated. &nbsp;According to the narrator, qsort was faster than bucket sort because Program::Main() took longer in the qsort version. &nbsp;However, that doesn&#39;t compare the speed of the sort algo. &nbsp;It compares the running time of the Main() function.<br /> <br /> According to the Form1::Sort() function results, it would appear that the bucket sort is faster. &nbsp;(See screenshot attached or go to the video to see original).<br /> <br /> Or am I reading/understanding something incorrectly?<br /> <br /> <br /> A http://smartbear.com/forums/f59/t88770/QSort-vs-Bucket-Sort-video 4/16/2014 3:07:05 PM Adrian Hawryluk 6a91a1fc-21ac-472a-ba87-1ca6c6ae0f91 Generating a UML sequence diagram Is it possible to generate a sequence diagram from the profiling results of AQtime?<br /> <br /> This would be VERY convieniant.<br /> <br /> Thanks,<br /> <br /> <br /> A http://smartbear.com/forums/f59/t88768/Generating-a-UML-sequence-diagram 4/16/2014 2:08:05 PM Adrian Hawryluk 815e779c-6300-4b73-ba50-1c5b82dd9a4c
