Children Pane (Routines Category)

Applies to AQTime 8.81, last modified on January 18, 2022

When the Routines category is active in the Explorer panel, the Call Tree panel shows profiling results for individual routines. The Children pane of the Call Tree panel displays a tree of calls starting with the given routine. The pane contains several columns that do not depend on the active counter and there is also a set of columns that depend on the counter that was used during profiling.

Below is a description of the available columns (the Call Tree and Details panels have the same set of columns):

Columns that do not depend on the active counter

Columns specific to the Elapsed Time, User Time and User+Kernel Time counters

Columns specific to the CPU Cache Misses counter

Columns specific to the CPU Mispredicted Branches counter

Columns specific to the Hard Memory Page Faults, Soft Memory Page Faults and All Memory Page Faults counters

Columns specific to the Split Load Replays, Split Store Replays and Blocked StoreForwards Replays counters

Columns specific to the 64K Aliasing Conflicts counter

Columns specific to the Context Switches counter


  • Though the columns in the Parents and Children panes have the same names that the Report columns have, the meaning of these values differ from the meaning of the Report panel values.

  • The Parents and Children tables may contain the <Root>, <JIT compiler> and <Garbage collector> routines. For more information on them, see Pseudo-Routines in Profiling Results.

  • You can arrange the Lines, Parents and Children tables in the Details panel as you wish. To do this, select Allow docking in Details from the context menu and then dock or undock the pages as you would dock or undock other AQTime panels. See Docking.

  • The columns that display percent values in the Children table (% Time, % with Children, % Misses, % Branches and others) depend on the Include routine body in Details item of the Report panel's toolbar. When this item is pressed, AQTime displays a row with the routine body results in the Children table. This changes the number of rows in the table, which, in turn, changes the percent columns’ values.
