Before OProfile can be run in legacy mode, it must be configured as shown in xref:OProfile.adoc#s1-oprofile-configuring[Configuring OProfile Using Legacy Mode]. These settings are then applied when starting OProfile (xref:OProfile.adoc#s1-oprofile-starting[Starting and Stopping OProfile Using Legacy Mode]).
Be extremely careful when setting sampling rates. Sampling too frequently can overload the system, causing the system to appear frozen or causing the system to actually freeze.
Be aware of the following limitations when using OProfile:
Back up the executable and the sample files
Analyzing the Data
After successful setup, you can apply the standard profiling and analyzing tools described in previous sections
After changing any of the options, save them by clicking the btn:[Save and quit] button. The preferences are written to `/root/.oprofile/daemonrc`, and the application exits. Exiting the application does not stop OProfile from sampling.
A directory exists in `/dev/oprofile/` for each counter. For example, if there are 2 counters, the directories `/dev/oprofile/0/` and `/dev/oprofile/1/` exist.
