dotTrace 2022.3 Help

Call Stack

Typically, the final goal of any performance analysis is determining a particular method that causes performance issues. To help you perform this task, dotTrace Viewer offers the Call Stack window. This is the default dotTrace Viewer window – the first window you see after you get or open a snapshot.

The Call Stack window displays stack data in two ways:

  • Hotspots  – Plain list of methods from all selected threads sorted by execution time. The subsystems bar below the list visualizes the data from the Subsystems filter.

  • Call Tree  – Methods execution paths. Tree nodes are top-level methods executed by certain threads.
