Starting Insight

1 minute read

To start Insight:

  1. Based on your system:

    • Linux: Type einsight at the command prompt, optionally including the build annotation filename.

      % einsight [build-annotation-file]
    • MacOS: Select einsight from the Applications folder.

    • Windows: Select Start→CloudBees Build Acceleration Insight→CloudBees Build Acceleration Insight.


      Type einsight at the command prompt. Optionally, you can specify the target annotation file.

      % einsight [build-annotation-file]
  2. If you did not specify a build annotation file on the command line, click the folder icon on the toolbar or click File>Load annotation.

    If you want to use Insight with an ebitbake build, you must first create a pseudo-annotation file for that build. For instructions, see the “Analyzing a Build Using Insight” section in the KBEA-00171 - Using eMake to Accelerate BitBake Builds Using ElectricAccelerator 11.0.1 KB article. You load a ebitbake pseudo-annotation file into Insight just as you do with any other annotation file.

  3. Navigate to the annotation file of a completed build that you want to analyze and click Open.

    Your build is now displayed.
