2 Getting started with perfetto[edit]

Perfetto instructions can be generated using the recording tool[2].

  • Create record settings required
  • Copy generated instructions
  • Execute the copied instructions on a opened terminal with the device connected through USB, having ADB installed.

At the end of the trace execution, you can get back the trace:

 adb pull /data/misc/perfetto-traces/trace

From this stage you can directly open the trace through the web viewer[3].
