Message Profile

The Message Profile Chart categorizes messages by groupings in a matrix and shows the value of several attributes in each cell.

By default the matrix is square with the sending processes as row labels and the receiving processes as column labels. It shows in cell (i, j) the total time spent in transferring messages from sender i to receiver j.

This chart also includes per row and per column statistics, which give the sum, the average and the standard deviation for the respective row or column.
