Export and import a System Profile

You can store a System Profile to an external XML file, for backup purposes, or for later re-use with other AppMon Server.

Known problem

When you export or import a System Profile with a name different from the initial, it is an implicit rename operation that invalidates all resource tasks such as memory, thread, and sampling stored in the System Profile. Remove the tasks and manually re-add them to correct the invalid tasks after you import such a System Profile.
