Processes mode

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.
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.


The 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.
