Export Profiler Report Data in Visual Studio 2010

You can export Visual Studio 2010 Profiler reports ( .VSP ) either in a CSV or an XML file format.  There are multiple options from where you can start exporting the reports data.  You can also use filter option before export the data.

To launch Export Report Data Dialog, in Performance explorer, select the report and select “Export Report Data” from the context menu.


Not only from Performance Explorer , you can launch the Export report dialog either from “Report summary view window” or from “Tool bar” of different report view as shown in below images.


All of the above option will  launch “Export Report” dialog window.



Now, as per your requirement you can select the export view ( Call Tree, Modules, Processes etc. )  from the list of option available. Then provide the report prefix name and select the location. Finally select report format ( either CSV or XML ).


Click on “Export” . This will create different CSV files ( As you have selected CSV format ) for each and every view. 


To view those files, navigate to the exported report location .

Another simple way to export the profiler reports,  you can just do simple copy and  past of the data from visual studio profiler reports.


Hope this helps !

Cheers !
