The Monitor panel is aimed at monitoring real-time memory usage. Currently, the Monitor works only with the Allocation profiler (see Using the Monitor Panel With the Allocation Profiler). When the Allocation profiler is running, the Monitor panel tracks creations and deletions of class instances as well as allocations and deallocations of memory blocks in the profiled application.
To display the Monitor panel, do any of the following:
Select Monitor from the View > AQTime Profile Windows > Other menu.
Select Monitor from the Assistant panel.
|Note:||The Monitor panel displays information only if the panel’s Active option is enabled.|

What Information the Monitor Panel Displays
The Monitor panel includes a flexible system of settings which allows you to make the panel display only the characteristics you need. This speeds up the monitoring process and helps you avoid analyzing large amounts of information which does not serve your specific testing requirements.
By default, the Monitor panel displays two predefined data pages. The left data page lets you monitor two performance parameters - CPU and memory usage. The right one provides you with information about the total number and total size of allocated class instances.
Besides the predefined data pages, you can create your own data pages to monitor desired characteristics during profiling. For each page (including the predefined pages), you can select desired characteristics to monitor (we call them counters) and the view style.
