dotTrace Web Help

Recursive call stacks can be deep and difficult to analyze. If you want to see which functions occupy the most time and how many calls are made, use folding. dotTrace Performance recalculates the tree of recursive calls and presents information by function signatures.

Recursive calls are marked with the ico_recursive icon.

Folded recursive calls are marked with the ico_recursive_collapse icon.

To fold a recursive call
  1. Select a recursive function call in the Thread Tree or Call Tree view.
  2. Click ico_recursive to fold the function call.
To unfold a recursive call
  1. Select a recursive function call in the Thread Tree or Call Tree view.
  2. Click ico_recursive_collapse to unfold the function call.

Alternatively, you can choose View | Toggle Subtree Folding on the menu bar or press Ctrl+Space to fold or unfold recursive calls.

The SetValue function is marked with the ico_recursive icon, so you can click the icon and fold all calls.

The ico_recursive icon is replaced with the ico_recursive_collapse icon and the number of calls is recalculated.
