Qualcomm Snapdragon Profiler


Qualcomm Snapdragon Profiler

Hey All,


    Our friends at Qualcomm have shared their Snapdragon Profiler with us.


The Snapdragon Profiler is profiling software that runs on the Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms. It connects with Android devices powered by Snapdragon processors over USB. Snapdragon Profiler allows developers to analyze CPU, GPU, DSP, memory, power, thermal, and network data, so they can find and fix performance bottlenecks.


The profiler will help to streamline your Focus development and more quickly debug your apps.  Check it out here  - https://developer.qualcomm.com/software/snapdragon-profiler.


NOTE: Make sure that your Focus/device can connect via ADB (Android Debug Bridge). 



Re: Qualcomm Snapdragon Profiler

In case other devs had trouble with the Snapshot Capture feature not working. Make sure to have the line 

android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />

in your AndroidManifest.xml. (Or enable the external storage option in Unity player settings if you're using Unity, this will put this line in the manifest for you).

Then go to the app settings in the Vive Focus settings and enable the Storage permission. <- This part is what got me.
