Heavy Profiler Impact on Application

Heavy Profiler Impact on Application

I'm working with a fairly heavy application that is able to render at 60-90FPS on average. Whenever running this same application through the graphics monitor for analysis, I notice that overall application performance heavily tanks, dropping to an average of 24-25FPS. This is an OpenVR application with asynchronous and interleaved projection options turned off.

I was wondering if this is at all common, or if there's a set tracing options that are more expensive than others. It appears that this performance drop happens whenever tracing is enabled, even if all of the other metrics are disabled.

Hi Ray, 

Sorry that you are running into this much over head, we have fixes in the works to support this but we would like to have some more in-depth conversations on the data you are wanting to collect which could help us with optimizing this solution. 

I sent you my email address in a private message. Let's start the conversation there. :)

Best,

Seth
