Threads Tree

Item Description
Main_Thread Main thread stands out against other threads, so it is marked with special icon.
Thread_with_Message Threads that do message pumping are marked with this special icon.
Finalizer_Thread This icon is used for the finalizer thread.
High_Own_Time This icon shows whether most of the execution time is spent in this function call or in its children. In other words, the icon informs you that the function has high own time.
Critical_Path This icon informs you that the execution time of a function and all its children are rather high, so this execution path is critical.
End_of_Critical_Path

This icon shows the end of a call chain.

Studying_Profiling_Results__Adding_Annotations__Annotation This icon is displayed near annotated functions. For more information about annotated functions, see Adding Annotations.
Working_with_Profiling_Results__Line-by-line_Profiling__Injected This icon is displayed near functions profiled line by line. For more information about line-by-line profiling, see Closing in on a Function with Line-by-Line Profiling.
Working_with_Profiling_Results__Line-by-line_Profiling__Injected_Planned This icon is displayed near functions that will be profiled line by line. For more information about line-by-line profiling, see Closing in on a Function with Line-by-Line Profiling.
ico_bar This icon informs you that the current function not only calls other functions, but also does some work. It visually represents the contribution to parent's node execution time.
ico_recursive This icon is displayed near recursive calls that can be folded. For more information, see Folding Recursive Calls.
ico_recursive_collapse This icon is displayed near folded recursive calls.
callchain_unfolded This icon is displayed near filtered calls that can be folded. For more information see, Folding Filtered Calls.
callchain_folded This icon is displayed near folded filtered calls.
Filtered_Function A snapshot node is grayed out if the corresponding function is matched by one of the configured filters. For more information, see Creating and Applying Filters.
