The Group by Creation Stack Trace view shows the stack trace responsible for creating the selected object set. Use this view to answer the question "What function creates the object?"
This view could also be extremely helpful in determining functions that perform excessive allocations.


Same function can be called from different parts of an app; therefore, the function can appear multiple times in the list of calls.

The stack trace can be shown in three ways:

  • Call Tree - a list of calls shown starting from the first call in the stack.
  • Call Tree as Icicle Chart - a graphical representation of the call tree.
  • Back Traces - a list of calls shown starting from the last call in the stack.
To sort the allocation call stack, click a particular link in the list of views.
