Alternatively, Call tree tab is useful to quickly identify the bottleneck of an application run by inspecting the highest percentage of time spend in each thread of the application.

Compressed mode

Execution Analysis contains an option that allow the collection of profiling data in compressed mode, aka aggregated mode. Compressed mode provides a quick starting point to analysis the data if volume of data is a concern. Note that compressed mode does not provide graphical support nor call tree support. However, tabular method invocation detail is available in compressed mode selection.

Compressed mode can be enabled by selecting the option in the Execution Analysis dialog.
