How long should we “test”/”exercise” our application for RapidFort to have a comprehensive profile of the software before Optimizing/hardening our application?
It depends on how many features your application has and how long it will take to exercise those features. Note that RapidFort doesn’t require a comprehensive QA test approach to test every line of code. Please do pay special attention to cron jobs such as reports that are generated once every few days/weeks. You will need to either manually force such cron jobs to execute during profiling stage or extend the profiling stage so that RapidFort can fully profile the runtime behavior of your application
