Switching the Profiler Storage

In Symfony versions prior to 3.0, profiles could be stored in files, databases, services like Redis and Memcache, etc. Starting from Symfony 3.0, the only storage mechanism with built-in support is the filesystem.

By default the profile stores the collected data in the %kernel.cache_dir%/profiler/ directory. If you want to use another location to store the profiles, define the dsn option of the framework.profiler:

  • YAML
  • XML
  • PHP
# app/config/config.yml
        dsn: 'file:/tmp/symfony/profiler'

You can also create your own profile storage service implementing the :class:2cf433c2796fce3901437a12d5869cd6db5ad987 and overriding the profiler.storage service.
