Visualization Settings Toolbar
Enables you to adjust the manner of displaying events in the
Mainbar chart and
Main Bar Chart
Visualizes performance in the frame or selected events over time, if metrics are available for the target system.
Frame Navigation Bar Chart
Enables you to navigate along the frame and select events that are shown on the
Visualization Settings ToolbarUse the
Advanced Profiling Modebutton
Enables a hotspot analysis that discovers performance bottlenecks in individual events and allows you to group the events by the causes of bottlenecks and by pipeline states. This button becomes active, if the system supports the full list of Intel performance counters.
When you click the
Advanced Profiling Modebutton, data representation changes in all Graphics Frame Analyzer components:
Advanced Profilingmode, calls can be grouped by:
Advanced Profilingmode is enabled, the
Full Frameparameter in the
Frame Statisticspane shows the aggregate duration of events, ignoring parallel execution.
Enables you to choose the available metrics for the X axis to visualize specific aspects of performance in the frame.
Enables you to choose the available metrics for the Y axis to visualize specific aspects of performance in the frame.
Group bydrop-down button
Groups the events visualized on the bar charts by:
Chart Regionsdrop-down button
Enables a markup on the top of the
Mainbar chart to highlight the same groups that are available in the
Group Bydrop-down list.
Color Bydrop-down button
Colors bars on the
Mainbar chart according to the types of events or bottlenecks. The button is available only if the system supports the full list of Intel performance counters.
Imports the saved metrics data onto the chart for comparison with the current metrics values. You can only import metrics data for the same frame file with the same set of metrics selected. If you import one or more CSV files into the bar chart, the X-axis is reset to a constant metric.
Saves metrics data in the CSV format.
Hover over the rectangles above the chart to view the *.csv file names and associate the color code in the bar chart with the imported files. To remove the imported metrics data from the chart, click the corresponding rectangle.
Show Color Legendbutton
Explains the color legend used in the
Mainbar chart for events and bottlenecks. Legend for bottlenecks is available only if the system supports the full list of Intel performance counters. By default, the bars on the
Mainbar chart are colored by event types.
