Call Tree View - Profiler .NET Memory Sampling Data

The Call Tree view displays the function execution paths that were traversed in the profiled application. The root of the tree is the entry point into the application or the component. Each function node lists all the functions it called and the .NET memory allocation data about those function calls.

The values in the Call Tree view are for the function instances that were called by the parent function in the call tree. Percentage values are calculated by comparing the function instance value to the total number or size of allocations in the profiling run.

The Call Tree view can expand and highlight the execution path of the process or function that created the largest or most memory objects.

  • To display the most active path, right-click the process or function, and then click Expand Hot Path.

Each process in the profiling run is displayed as a root node. To set the starting node of the Call Tree view to a different node, right click the node that you want to set as the start node and select Set Root.

When you set the root node, you eliminate all other entries from the view except for the subtree of the selected node. You can reset the root node back to the node you were viewing; right-click in the Call Tree View window and select Reset Root.

Column

Description

Process ID

The process ID (PID) of the profiling run.

Process Name

The name of the process.

Module Name

The name of the module that contains the function.

Module Path

The path of the module that contains the function.

Source File

The source file that contains the definition for this function.

Function Name

The fully qualified name of the function.

Function Line Number

The line number of the start of this function in the source file.

Function Address

The address of the function.

Level

The depth of the function in the call tree.

Inclusive Allocations

The number of objects allocated by the instances of this function that were called by the parent function in the call tree. This number includes allocations made by functions that were called by this function.

Inclusive Allocations %

The percentage of all objects created in the profiling run that were inclusive allocations of this function.

Exclusive Allocations

The number of objects allocated by the instances of this function that were called by the parent function in the call tree. The number does not include allocations made by functions that were called by this function.

Exclusive Allocations %

The percentage of all objects created in the profiling run that were exclusive allocations of this function.

Inclusive Bytes

The number of bytes in memory that were allocated by the instances of this function that were called by the parent function in the call tree. The number includes allocations made by functions called by this function.

Inclusive Bytes %

The percentage of all bytes of memory allocated in the profiling run that were inclusive allocations of this function.

Exclusive Bytes

The number of bytes in memory that were allocated by the instances of this function that were called by the parent function in the call tree. The number does not include allocations made by functions called by this function.

Exclusive Bytes %

The percentage of all bytes of memory allocated in the profiling run that were exclusive allocations of this function.
