Processes mode provides a set of data similar to what you would get if you entered the
top command in your Linux shell. For every time bin in the Timeline view, it provides you a list of processes along with usage information.
The details panel has the following columns when it is in Processes mode:
- The PID assigned by Linux to the process.
- The name of the process or thread.
- % CPU
- The percentage of the CPU activity this process used for the time bins currently selected by cross-section marker.
- The amount of memory used by the process. Like the % CPU column, this value
is dependent on the current position of the cross-section marker.
NoteThe memory column only appears if the capture used memory counters.
You can sort by any of the columns in Processes mode. Click once for a descending sort and twice for an ascending sort.
