Manage Grid Views

Explore the mechanisms provided by the Intel® VTune™ Profiler to manage the data format, sort and filter data in the grid views.

These features are available in all grid views that display collected performance data:

To Do This

Do This

Sort the table by values in a particular column

Click any column header . You can only sort by one column, however, a previous sorting may be kept for rows with the same values on the current sorting.

Synchronize the selected data

Select a program unit of your interest in a grid or Timeline pane and the VTune Profiler highlights the same unit in other panes/windows.

Re-group the displayed data

Select the required granularity from the Grouping drop-down menu. The available groups depend on the analysis type.

Expand/Collapse data in the column

Click the expand/collapse buttons in the data columns to expand the column by utilization such as poor, or OK utilization, and by threads within the utilization definition.

Expand/Collapse row data

Click the expand/collapse buttons to show/hide the next level of grouping or call stack elements.

Change the data representation format

Right-click the data column and select Show Data As > and select from the different data format options. The data format you configure is used in all the windows.

Select rows

Shift-click to select two or more consecutive rows. Ctrl-click to select two or more rows that are not consecutive.

Filter the content of the window

  • Use the drop-down controls in the Filter toolbar to filter data by the contribution of a selected program unit. The percentage contribution depends on the filtering metric selected by clicking the Filter icon. In the example below, the analyze_locks process contributes 53.4% of the Clockticks event count (default filtering metric for the hardware event-based analysis) to the overall application Clockticks event count, so filtering the collected data by this module causes the viewpoint to show 53.4 % of the overall Clockticks data.

  • Use the Filter In/Out by Selection options of the context menu. VTune Profiler filters in/out the data based on the Total time of the selected item(s).

Filtering the data in one window applies the same filter to all the windows of that viewpoint.

If you applied filters available on the Filter bar to the data already filtered with the Filter In/Out by Selection context menu options, all filters are combined and applied simultaneously.

View source/ assembly code

Select a program unit you need and double-click. If the source file is not found, the assembly pane is displayed.
