debugging a long running process?

Hey gang,

I've noticed that occasionally, my app will start using a lot of cpu - 30-50%. This lasts for about 10 mins or so, then the app is either terminated, crashes, or recovers on its own.

I've noticed this using device monitor.

This happens kind of randomly and intermittently. My app could run for days without issues, then this may happen.

Since I can't keep my phone connected to the ide for days at a time, are there any good ways to debug a problem like this?

I'm starting to instrument everything with a QTimer and dumping that to a log to see if I can isolate what's happening, just wondering if there are any better ways to do this?

If you wanna log some main points in your app, log it into Hub. Smiley Happy

You need to profile your app...




Run a profiled build of your app, run through all its functionality and then analyse the profile information.


If it only happens every now and then then always run the profile enabled build and next time it happens analyse the results.


Do you have any idea when it happens, i.e. in a network load, intensive graphics session, do you use threading or shared resources? These things can usually be logically assessed and the areas narrowed down with just understanding of your own code and looking at the areas mentioned.
