The
Counter Timeline Settings
provide
Preferences
and
Counters
controls.
Preferences
Use these controls to adjust the display settings and the Counter Timeline scaling.
Intel® Trace Analyzer
In the  
Display
group, configure the Counter Timeline with the following controls:
Setting
Impact
Time Scale
Display the time scale along the x-axis
Vertical Scale
Display the time scale along the y-axis. By default, this option is enabled so that you can see the scale.
Legend
Show the legend in the right margin of the timeline. It is also enabled by default.
Adjust graphics to legend height
Make the size of the diagram large enough to show all legend items
Single Diagram
/
Many
 
Diagrams
combo-box
Select either a single diagram for all selected counters and target group children or a separate diagram for each target group child
 
Vertical Scaling
offers selection between the
Automatic Scaling (per Diagram)
,
Automatic Scaling (Global)
and the
Manual
 
Scaling
of the y-axis. To specify explicitly the minimum and maximum scale values, choose
Manual
 
Scaling
. When visually comparing two or more Charts in the same or distinct Views, specify the same bounds for all charts.
Counters
There are seven entries for each trace file counter. The top level entry for each counter shows the counter Name, its Unit, the target Process Group, and Attributes. The name and the unit are arbitrary, free-format strings defined in the trace file.
Intel® Trace Analyzer
The column
Process Group
contains the counter target group. A counter that has different values for each process has the target group All_Processes, while a counter that has a distinct value for each SMP node belongs to the target group All_Nodes.
The column
Attributes
can contain either the Integer or Double attribute, indicating the counter type. And
Valid
 
BEFORE Point
,
Valid AFTER Point
,
Valid AT
 
Point
or
Curve
attributes to indicate the counter scope. For example, curve indicates that it is meaningful to interpolate values between two given counter values. The attribute
Show Rate
indicates that it is preferable to display the derivation to time instead of the plain counter values.
Under the top-level counter entry, there are six entries for the minimum, average and maximum values and for the minimum, average and maximum rates, which you can switch on and off independently. If you just check the top-level box with the name of the counter, either the average value or average rate is chosen depending on the counter attributes.

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors.
