This section describes factors affecting VI performance and offers techniques to help you obtain the best performance possible. One tool this section describes is the Profile Performance and Memory window, which displays data about the execution time and memory usage of VIs. This section also describes memory management in the dataflow model that LabVIEW uses and outlines tips for creating VIs that use memory efficiently.

Note  You can use the LabVIEW VI Analyzer Toolkit to check VIs interactively or programmatically for performance, efficiency, and other aspects of LabVIEW programming.

Refer to the labview\examples\Performance directory for examples of managing performance and memory.
