Charts in Intel® Trace Analyzer are graphical or alphanumerical diagrams that are parameterized with a time interval, a process grouping and a function grouping (see Aggregation) and an optional filter. Together they define the structure in which data is presented and the amount of data to be displayed.
The Charts supported by Intel Trace Analyzer are divided into:
Timelines: Event Timeline, Qualitative Timeline, Quantitative Timeline and Counter Timeline.
Profiles: Function Profile, Message Profile and Collective Operations Profile.
Charts are grouped into Views. These Views provide ways to choose the time interval, the process grouping and optional filters that all Charts in the View use. For more details on Views, see Views.
While the former show trace data in graphical form over a horizontal axis representing runtime, the latter show statistical data. All these Charts are found under Views Menu > Charts. Opening a file in Intel Trace Analyzer displays a View containing the Function Profile Chart (showing the Flat Profile tab) for the opened file.
The following sections describe each Chart in detail. For each Chart there is a subsection about Mouse Hovering, the context menu, the settings dialog box, the effects of filtering and tagging and the effects of aggregation, if it is applicable.
