Threads Tree

ItemDescription
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.
ThemedIcon JetBrainsProfilerUIResourcesMeasureControllerStopDrop Screen 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 Profiler Options.
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 Profiler Options.
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.
hotspot icon This icon shows hot spot calls.
