When application performance is impacted, capture the client profile logs by following these steps:

1. Display Developer Tools by pressing ctrl+shift+i in the Symphony Desktop Application (SDA) or F12 in Google Chrome.

2. Navigate to the Performance menu (Figure 1):

5. Select Stop to end the recording when evidence of slow performance has been captured.

Note: It may take several moments to complete the stop as the collected data is collated.

6. Select the down arrow to save the captured client profile logs (Figure 4):
