More information on stackwalk options RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there details information available on "stackwalk" and stackwalk options?

    For example, after reading through pigscanfly I am inferring that 'profile' option takes samples at random interval and captures stacktrace at that point.

    What about ProfileSetInterval?

    What about rest of the options - for example, does RegCloseKey mean that anytime this function is called during program execution, the stack trace is captured?

    Also, it would be helpful if somewhere it was explained what I am seeing in Summary Table for xperfview. How do I interprete Weight, Weight%, Count columns? What about rest of the columns that seem to be blank almost all the time - TimeStamp, ThreadID, CPU?

    I guess in general it would very helpful if there was detailed documentation or better yet more examples of how to decipher the data.
