Threads Tree

ItemDescription
Main threadMain thread stands out against other threads, so it is marked with special icon.
Thread with messageThreads that do message pumping are marked with this special icon.
Themed icon jet brains profiler ui resources measure controller stop drop screenThis icon is used for the finalizer thread.
High own timeThis 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 pathThis 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 annotationThis icon is displayed near annotated functions. For more information about annotated functions, see Add Annotations.
Working with profiling results line by line profiling injectedThis icon is displayed near functions profiled line by line. For more information about line-by-line profiling, see 5. (Optional) Configuring filters for the line-by-line profiling.
Working with profiling results line by line profiling injected plannedThis icon is displayed near functions that will be profiled line by line. For more information about line-by-line profiling, see 5. (Optional) Configuring filters for the 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 recursiveThis icon is displayed near recursive calls that can be folded. For more information, see Fold Recursive Calls.
Ico recursive collapseThis icon is displayed near folded recursive calls.
Callchain unfoldedThis icon is displayed near filtered calls that can be folded. For more information see Fold Filtered Calls.
Callchain foldedThis icon is displayed near folded filtered calls.
Filtered functionA snapshot node is grayed out if the corresponding function is matched by one of the configured filters. For more information, see Apply Filters.
Hotspot iconThis icon shows hot spot calls.
