Process Monitor Profiling Support

·

If you’re looking for a very simple profiler that will give you a general idea how CPU utilization is distributed in your system, look no further than the latest version of Process Monitor.

Under Tools | Profiling Events, you can enable stack trace collection every second or every 100ms for all running processes.

Here’s an example call stack from a devenv.exe thread captured in the profiling mode:

And here is an aggregating view for all the activity in the log (under Tools | Stack Summary):
