Windows® Performance Recorder (WPR) recording profiles control all aspects of a recording. For each WPR profile, you must select a detail level. The available levels are Light and Verbose. The Light detail level is primarily used for timing recordings. The Verbose detail level provides the detailed information that you need for analysis. Built-in profiles support both Verbose and Light detail levels.
The Verbose level is selected by default in both the WPR user interface (UI) and in the WPR command line.
When you author custom profiles, we recommend that you define both a light version and a verbose version in the same .wprp file. These files can contain up to four profile definitions: one for each combination of detail level and logging mode.
