Studying Function Timings

A function can cause performance problems in two possible ways: either it takes too much time to execute or it is called too often. When you find a suspicious function, you can determine which kind of the problem it poses by viewing function properties in the Properties dialog box.

To view properties of a function

  1. Select a function in a view.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • On the menu bar, choose View | Properties.
    • Right-click the function, then click Properties on the context menu.
    • Press Ctrl Q.
  3. The Properties dialog box opens.

The Properties dialog box provides a summary of function statistics with respect to the selected function call, to all calls in the current tab and in the whole snapshot.

The number of columns may vary depending on where you have launched the Properties dialog box.
