Switching the Profiler StorageΒΆ

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:

    # app/config/config.yml
    framework:
        profiler:
            dsn: 'file:/tmp/symfony/profiler'

You can also create your own profile storage service implementing the ProfilerStorageInterface and overriding the profiler.storage service.
