Stream Analysis

Stream analysis is an intermediate stage of the frame analysis for Metal* applications. Use stream analysis to detect frames with potential bottlenecks based on frame duration.
A typical stream analysis workflow is as follows:
1.
To capture a specific stream, you can:
  • From the Graphics Monitor context menu, open the Graphics Monitor launcher screen, and then select an application for analysis.
  • Choose the
    Stream
    mode.
  • Click
    Start
    to start the application with the System Analyzer HUD overlay. Stream capturing starts upon the application startup.
  • To stop stream capturing, click the
    Stop
    button in the
    Graphics Monitor Launcher
    screen, or close the application.
2.
Load the stream file
Launch the Graphics Frame Analyzer to select the stream for analysis. You can analyze a stream locally, or connect to a remote target system where the Graphics Monitor is running to analyze your stream in the network mode.
3.
Analyze the captured stream
Explore the performance impact of specific frames in the stream at different stages of the rendering pipeline:
