Unlike the regular profilers, NAS profilers are initialized with a space, and are expected to do some pre-computation with the space, such that it can quickly computes the performance of a model given a sample within a space. A profiler can return many things, such as latency, throughput, model size, etc. Mostly things that can be computed instantly, or can be computed with a small overhead. For metrics that require training, please use :class:`~nni.nas.evaluator.Evaluator` instead.
