The number of problem occurrences available for display in this pane depends on how you configure the analysis. For future analysis runs:

  • Deselect the Remove duplicates checkbox on the Analysis Type window to report all occurrences of a detected problem. Deselecting is:

    • Useful when you need to fully visualize all threads and problem occurrences in relation to time

    • Low cost in terms of performance; however, the number of detected problem occurrences could be significantly higher and may require more system resources for storage and processing

  • Select the Remove duplicates checkbox to report only a representative occurrence of each detected problem.
