Analysis Tab

Updated: October 20, 2013

Applies To: Windows 8, Windows 8.1

The Analysis tab is the central workspace of Windows® Performance Analyzer (WPA). To analyze a recording, you can drag graph thumbnails from the Graph Explorer window onto this tab. At the left side of each graph is a legend that labels the lines or bars on the graph and an associated data table. The data table shows the graph data in tabular form.

The following illustration shows the Analysis tab with two graphs open.

On the right side of the graph title bar are three layout icons. To view the graph and table, click the left-most icon. To view the data table with a thumbnail view of the graph, click the middle icon. To view the graph alone, click the right-most icon.

At the bottom of the Analysis tab is a timeline that applies to all graphs on the tab. If you zoom in to a time interval on one graph, WPA synchronizes all graphs, the timeline, and the data tables. You can zoom in on a time interval repeatedly to view fine detail. For more information about zooming, see Zoom In on a Time Interval.

To search for text in the data tables or to filter the data that is displayed in the graphs and tables, right-click the data table. For more information, see Customize a Data Table and Search or Filter Data.

To increase the size of the Analysis tab, you can drag the surrounding panes into separate windows or close them altogether. For more information, see Change the View Layout.

You can open a new Analysis tab without losing the one that you already have open. For more information, see Change the View Layout.

Layout options are available on the right edge of the Issue Details title bar. To view only the Issue Details, click the Maximize icon. Additionally, you can use Display table only. To increase the size of the Analysis tab, you can drag the surrounding panes into separate windows or close them altogether. For more information, see Change the View Layout.

When the search options in the Issues Window change, the same list of issues is presented in the Issue Details window. Your search will also change the zoom level of all the graphs on the tab to reflect the time intervals that are impacted by the Issues that are displayed.

To search for specific issues, or to filter by a particular Issue category, see Issues Window.

For more information about the contents of each detected issue, see Windows Assessment Toolkit Technical Reference.
