C++ – Profiling in Visual Studio 2008 PRO

How do I use the profiler in Visual Studio 2008?

I know theres a build option in Config Properties -> Linker -> Advanced -> Profile (/PROFILE), however I can't find anything about actauly using it, only articles I was able to find appear to only apply to older versions of Visual Studio (eg most say to goto Build->Profile to bring up the profile dialog box, yet in 2008 there is no such menu item).

Is this because Visual Studio 2008 does not include a profiler, and if it does where is it and where is the documentation for it?
