Marks View

The Marks view displays the results of profiling marks that were inserted into the application. Profiling marks label significant events in the profiling run. For more information about marks, see Data Collection Control Window.

The default marks that are pre-populated in the report label the start of the program and the end of the program.

Windows counters data from automatically generated marks is also presented in this view. For more information, see How to: Collect Windows Counter Data.

To create a filter between two marks, select the marks, and then right click and click Add Filter by Marks or Add Filter by Timestamp.

  • Mark ID
    Unique Identifier of the profiling mark.

  • MarkName
    The name of profiling mark.

  • Timestamp
    Time from the beginning of profiling to the time that the mark is encountered.

  • Windows performance counter data
