Thanks, I will have a look at it and see if I can figure out how to do that.

Subject: Re: Job Profiling

Hi Sebastian!

There is some profiling code that was used by previous versions of Flink (Stratosphere). The
profiling works, but there is currently nothing that displays the profiling data.

It would be a great addition to integrate displaying the profiling code in the web frontend,
or making it available for download.

Have a look at those classes here:
 - JobManager side :
 - TaskManager sied :

Daniel Warneke authored those, maybe he can chime in and give a few pointers
