4.5.2. Choosing image files

The Image field tells the ARM Profiler which ARM executable file you want to profile. Enter the directory location of the ARM executable file directly in the field or use the Browse... button to manually search your directories for the target file. To add multiple images, click on the plus sign below the Image field and enter another image file. This can be repeated to define a list of image files to execute.

The image options drop-down menu

The image options drop-down menu enables you to choose between the following three image options:

  • Load Image- Choose this option and the ARM Profiler loads the complete image on the RTSM. When using an RTSM to profile, you can only load one image.

  • Symbols Only- Choose this option and the ARM Profiler uses symbols from the image’s binary for profiling, but does not load the image to the RTSM. Use this option when defining multiple image files.

  • Loaded by OS - Choose this option if the operating system loads your application dynamically.


The ARM Profiler does not connect to targets configured for big endian operation.
