APPR provides following features for performance profiling of OpenOffice:

  • Automation of OpenOffice usages
    • Startup
    • LoadFile
    • PlaySlides
  • Integration of 3rd-party performance profling utilities
  • Data corelation and visualization
  • Extensable framework to add support for new usages and/or 3rd-party utilities

Detailed information about how to use APPR can be found in user guide document (./docs/APPR-User-Guide.odt) in the tarball.
