Process Aggregation

Use the Process Aggregation Dialog Box to:

  • Select a process group (or function group in general) for process aggregation

  • Create new groups beyond the ones that are provided by default

Open the Process Aggregation dialog box through Advanced > Process Aggregation or using the toolbar button.

Group definitions are stored in the .itarc file in your home directory (in Microsoft* Windows* this directory is C:\Users\%username%\). See Configuration Dialogs for other ways to save, edit and load configuration information.

Intel® Trace Analyzer

To select a process group for aggregation, select the group by using the mouse or the cursor/arrow keys and press Apply or OK.  

Note

The dialog box only accepts a single, non-empty process group that contains each of its functions not more than once.

Right-click an item in the editor to bring up a context menu with several entries:

Another way of editing is to drag a group, a process, or the entire current selection and to drop it into a target group. This can result in groups that contain the same function twice or more. In the group hierarchy, such groups are accepted for storage but not for aggregation. Empty groups are deleted automatically when the dialog box is closed.
