The Unity Profiler is a tool you can use to get performance information about your application. You can connect it to devices on your network or devices connected to your machine to test how your application runs on your intended release platform. You can also run it in the Editor to get an overview of resource allocation while you’re developing your application.
The Profiler gathers and displays data on the performance of your application in areas such as the CPU, memory, renderer, and audio. It’s a useful tool to identify areas for performance improvement in your application, and iterate on those areas. You can pinpoint things like how your code, Assets, Scene settings, camera rendering, and build settings affect your application’s performance. It displays the results in a series of charts, so you can visualize where spikes in your application’s performance happen.
To access the Profiler window go to menu: Window > Analysis > Profiler. For a detailed overview of the window, see the Profiler window documentation.
