Process View - Profiler Contention Data

The Process view displays contention data for the processes and threads that were executed during the profiling run.

When symbols are available, processes are listed by name. When symbols are not available, processes are listed by their memory address in hexadecimal format. Threads are listed as children of the process that created them.

The following table explains the values of the columns in the Process view table.

Blocked Time %

Contentions

The number of times that the functions of the process or thread were blocked from executing.

Contentions %

The percentage of all contentions in the profiling run that were contentions of the process or thread.

End Time

The number of milliseconds or processor cycles from the start of profiling to the end of the process or thread.

ID

The system-generated identifier of the process or thread.

Life Time

The number of milliseconds or processor cycles from the start of the process or thread to either the end of the process or thread or the end of profiling.
