Use performance rules to quickly identify issues: Profiling Tools performance rules identify common issues and help you easily navigate to the source code that contains the issue. Detailed help topics can often suggest a solution.
Understand report view details: Profiling Tools report views provide aggregated performance data for the processes, threads, modules, and functions of a profiling run. The data that appears depends on the profiling method that was used to collect the data.
Configure, sort, and filter report views: You can specify and order the data columns to display in a report, sort the report rows, and filter the data to include only a time segment that you specify.
