Analytics 10 Help, October 2013
Profiles hold all of the settings used to determine how your data should be analyzed. The profile points to data sources that define the location of your web server data.
Each profile is associated with a set of log files from which it draws data and one or more templates, which determine the set of reports that can be rendered from the analyzed data. When you analyze a profile, Webtrends creates a set of report databases.
You create profiles in Webtrends Analytics 9.
