Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 119689
Profiling launch configuration can proceed without specifying C/C++ launch configuration
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:05:05 EDT
Description of problem: When defining a new Oprofile launch
configuration, you can proceed without specifying a corresponding
C/C++ launch configuration.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Define a new Profiling launch configuration
2. Don't specify a corresponding C/C++ launch configuration
Actual results: You are allowed to continue (and even run oprofile)
without specifying a C/C++ launch configuration.
Expected results: The user shouldn't be allowed to continue without
specifying a C/C++ launch configuration. The dialog should probably
do setFinish(false) or whatever it is if the C/C++ launch config entry
box is empty or invalid (invalid == the C/C++ launch config entered
doesn't actually exist).
Actually this is the intended behavior. A system-wide profiler does
not necessarily need anything special to run it. What if I want some
sort of system performance baseline to compare what my application
does to the system?
