You can customize the Unity Profiler to capture and visualize specific performance data in your application. This performance data provides information about key performance characteristics, which you can use for optimization or for making tooling decisions.
You can use the Profiler Module Editor to add custom modules without hand-writing any code. The Profiler Module Editor is Unity’s built-in UI for Profiler customization. For more information, see Profiler Module Editor.
For more control, you can also use code to customize the Profiler in the following ways:
To customize the profiler using code, you need to install the Unity Profiling Core package.
You can use profiler markers to visualize resource-intensive blocks of code in the Profiler window.
Profiler Markers allow you to view method calls that Unity does not profile by default. You can then display these method calls in the CPU Profiler module without the need to use Deep Profiling. For more information, see the ProfilerMarker API guide.
