Code Tracing Tree
The Code Tracing Tree is accessed from Monitor
| Tracing and selecting a trace ID from the list.
The Tree tab displays the call tree for a selected event or trace file.
- Show Memory Usage - Show
or hide the Memory Usage column. Hovering over an item in this column
will display a tool tip containing a comparison of memory usage.
- Highlight most time consuming
path - shows the path that took the most time to run.
Selecting this option makes the Next Child in path button appear:
Next Child in Path - Clicking
this button makes the blue indicator line and the display scroll and
jump to the next child in the tree.
- Errors - An indicator for
the amount of errors the code threw. Clicking on the up/down arrows
will move the cursor to the error messages accordingly in the trace
data and then it will return to the beginning.
- Search - a case insensitive
search component for finding elements in the trace information. Entering
a search item and clicking will move
the blue indicator to the first instance in the trace information,
each time you click on (or the return
key) the indicator will move to the next instance
The Tree includes the following columns:
- Traced Functions: The name
of the caught object in the trace file. This could be an argument,
return value, function error, header etc.
- Memory Consumed by function (bytes):
The memory used by this item
- Running Time: A graphical
representation of memory usage pointing out the before/after function
runtime values of the total memory usage and the difference between
them. This allows you to see the before value, the memory consumption
after the function was run and the difference i.e. the amount of memory
the function added by running.
- (% of total): The percentage
of the total script's runtime.
- (ms): The time it took
for the function to run in milliseconds (including children).
- Called from (line): The
line of code where the event happened (in the file stated in filename).
- At any time you can hover over a component to see a tooltip that
describes the component and in certain cases additional information.
In the Tree tab:
- Bold items indicate calls that took the most time to execute and
this continues inside the call itself – indicating the slowest calls.
This indicates the application’s critical path.
- Double clicking on any item will jump to the relevant function
in the Statistics tab.
