Instruction Pointers (IPs) View - Sampling Data

 

The IPs view of sampling data lists performance data for the assembly instructions that were directly executing when the samples were collected in the profiling run.

Enhanced security features in Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 required significant changes in the way the Visual Studio profiler collects data on these platforms. Windows Store apps also require new collection techniques. See Performance Tools on Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 applications.

ColumnDescription
Process IDThe process ID (PID) of the profiling run.
Process NameThe name of the process.
Module NameThe name of the module that contains the instruction.
Module PathThe path of the module that contains the instruction.
Source FileThe source file that contains the instruction.
Function NameThe name of the function that contains the instruction.
Function Line NumberThe line number of the start of this function in the source file.
Function AddressThe starting memory address of the function in the loaded binary.
Source Line BeginThe starting line number in the source file at which this sample was collected.
Source Line EndThe ending line number in the source file at which this sample was collected.
Source Character BeginThe offset of the starting character in the source file line at which this sample was collected.
Source Character EndThe offset of the ending character in the source file line at which this sample was collected.
Instruction AddressThe address of the instruction in the loaded binary.
