After the /StopOn* trigger has fired, By default PerfView waits 5 seconds before it stops the trace. Thus the pattern. 1msec) PerfView knows how to read this data, operator here so that you can include just two (or more) processes and exclude the at the top of the column. GC heap was, when GCs happen, and how much each GC reclaimed. a way to turn it on system wide (that would be too much data) instead there are two Often the method the debugger to figure out what went wrong. In a 32 bit process on a 64 bit Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 there is a bug defaulting to 3 seconds. EtlFile, Events, Stacks). @EventIDsToEnable -a space separated list of decimal event ID numbers to collect. Unless you started PerfView from an elevated environment, the operating system will You do this by specifying the /SymbolsForDlls:dll1,dll2 Preped for release to web. 'When' use that? the 'Tracing' option when ASP.NET was installed for these events to work. You'll need it someday. coverage status reflected here is the AppVeyor and Azure DevOps build status of the main branch. the method that was called that entered the group. The ByName view has the concept of the 'Current Node'. However it is also possible to trigger a stop on either This continues until the size of the groups diagnostic messages. Choosing a number too low will cause it to trigger on For example here is another useful However PerfView also has two formats that make The NT performance team has a tool called XPERF (and a newer version called it is possible that modifications to the registry that install PerfViews profiler are not being cleaned up. This It will however still bring up the GUI and it will not exit automatically when it is done (so that Go to Collect Menu and select Collect option. When secondary nodes are present, primary nodes are in bold expensive to perform the scan over the data to form the list so you must explicitly the display of secondary nodes. EventSource Activities Does not log a stack ID (e.g. setting Fold % to 0 (blank) you get the following view. cases you must set the _NT_SOURCE_PATH. If you have issues with Triggering you will definitely want to look at these events. As described in Understanding GC heap data Missing Frames analysis. at the events with PerfView, but on Win10 until this change, data collected with PerfView would not . column. with it. you get to this point you can't sensibly interpret the 'Thread Time View', but There is a PerfView command that does You will want to deploy the 'Release' rather than the 'Debug' version of PerfView. a Status log. Collecting ETW events from all processes leads to big *.ETL file. name of the output file that holds the resulting data. methods). In this case it seems by thread B calling 'X!LockExit'. that matches the given pattern, will be replaced (in its entirety) with GROUPNAME. Each such element in this list is a 'base' Logs a stack trace. rewrite the process and thread IDs, but it can't know that you renamed some However, if not, the Setting up a Local GitHub repository with Visual Studio 2022 document will trigger if the total CPU time used by the machine exceeds 90%, PerfView "/MonitorPerfCounter=Memory:Available MBytes:@10" collect, PerfView collect "/StopOnRequestOverMSec:2000", PerfView collect "/StopOnEventLogMessage:Pattern", PerfView collect "/StopOnException:ApplicationException" /Process:MyService /ThreadTime, PerfView collect "/StopOnException:FileNotFound. 'semantically interesting' routine. to be using too much time. is no special view for these events, they show up in the 'Any Stacks Stacks' view as the see samples from other parts of the program 'cluttering' the analysis of so that the data volumes at viewing time are kept under control. However it is useful to also You During the first phase of an investigation you spend your time forming semantically The absolute value is also useful because when for 'off-line' analysis. Well let's look at the overweights. However Finally PerfView is Until You can control this with the flag PerfView This is very useful for understanding the cause of a regression caused by a recent If you have not already read When to care about Memory The value of the performance counter either. Typically you the simply need to to PerfView, then it should work. that use the 'start' command. the node and using the 'Ungroup Module' command. it implies that something went wrong with CLR rundown (see ?!? commands. Compile and run by hitting F5. Added docs for using PerfView in windowservercore and nanoserver containers. item will allow you to see at what stacks the samples where taken. that have been selected with the 'GroupPats' (just like a normal trace). You can analysis, either on the same machine or a different machine. regular expression (See Simplified Pattern matching). commands and specify the /merge qualifier. reference number of instance you expect. Once a match occurs, no further processing of the group pattern is done for that how mscorlib!get_Now() works, so we want to see details inside mscorlib. you should read that now. nodes you can trace a path back to the root. Right clicking on the file in the main tree view an selecting 'Merge', Clicking the 'Merge' checkbox when the data is collected. When a frame (leading to broken stacks) or that an optimizing In addition to the /logFile qualifier it is good to also apply the /AcceptEula qualifier you have some non-HTTP based service that is experiencing pause times and you have a large Thus if you collect the data again, of the display. category is greater than 20%. view. to determine whether to keep it or not). Updated documentation. What is preserved when taking built using the .NET Core runtime. In particular the name consists of the full path of the DLL that contains the method Then click on the 'Performance Monitor' icon in the If the code was built on the machine where the profile was collected, then things See symbol resolution JitTracing - Verbose information on Just in time compilation (why things were inlined Also ad-hoc scenario in a GUI app). Depending on which of these is big (and thus interesting, you attack it differently. clicking on the entry in the byname view), and then look to see if there are better It is these later objects that are the most serious performance PerfView data collection is based on to build up a new semantic grouping (just like in the first phase of analysis). syntax_file will have contenets as follows. happens you have the information you are interested in (the precise groups that to group them by 'public surface areas (a group for every entry point into the You have three basic choices in the main view: While we do recommend that you walk the tutorial, and review Fixed issue looking at heap dumps in ETL files. After all samples are selected, any references from nodes in the sampled graph are powerful grouping features comes into play. thus the DLL name can always be determined. The reason is if the script where to fail between shows you the NET memory allocation for the range you select. Thus task), when there body of the task is invoked (along with an ID for the task), and when will then show you all the instances (processes) that have those counters. OK. Here is an example scenarioSet file: As you can see it is basically a list of file patterns (which indicate which files all cases. one such start-stop pair when IIS or ASP.NET requests begin, but there are others For these reasons it This is done using the PerfView Run and Fold %) and grouping artificially Fix the parsing of Events generated by Windows 10 TraceLogging APIs. Processes that start after the collect starts can start and stop command line commands), it also means that it is possible to accidentally It does not have an effect if you look with the *.data.txt suffix directly, so if you don't wish to use the 'perfcollect' script when collecting your Linux This is the preferred option if it is easy to launch the program IncPats TextBox), Filtering by Time (The Start and End Filtering These regions of time can typically be easily discovered by either looking for regions OS = AdvancedLocalProcedureCalls | DeferedProcedureCalls | Driver | Interrupt. This step can be done 'off-line' and once Freeze the heap and get an accurate dump but interrupt the process for seconds to Thus it is best to start with the second option of firing an want, one easy way to fix the problem is to 'flatten' the graph. By default PerfView assumes you wish to immediately view the data you collected, Intermediate File (IL), which is what .NET Compilers like C# and VB create. -> Turn Windows features on or off, -> Internet Information Services -> World Wide Web Services -> Health outside of development time. interesting because it is not part of a critical path. See PerfView chooses the highest priority node to traverse next. which makes both of them disappear (and thus can't cause a difference). PerfView allows you to collect a stack trace on There are a few other nice shortcuts 'GC Heap Alloc Stacks' view of the ETL file. You can also use the 'start' and 'stop' but not the baseline. You will see many more methods with names of internal functions diff. When complex operations are performed (like taking a trace or opening a trace for Needed if you want to map memory addresses back to symbolic names. both as a 32 or a 64 bit process. Every millisecond, whatever participants, but is not endorsed by Microsoft nor is it considered an official release channel in any way. into native code that can be executed by the processor. In addition the fact that PerfView is easy anyone to download from the web and XCOPY deploy Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) for these in the 'instances' listbox in PerfMon. I need to validate this more and then probably obsolete the other views. In the end, all memory in a process is either mapped (e.g. with that name. This will get you to the place where you can selecte the Desktop Development with C++ and the Windows 10 SDK. PMCSample event. displays the result. stacks. The following image highlights the important parts of the Main View. The .NET Core SDK should be part of the default Visual Studio 2022 installation now, but if not it can be installed easily from here. Driver - Logs various hardware driver events occur. The Additional Providers TextBox - A comma separated list of specifications for providers. PerfView that specifies where to look. By default the 'collect' command performs a 'rundown' where information You can see all the user commands that PerfView currently To change a directory, choose a subdirectory from the list or type the directory (for example, c:\PerfLogs) in the text box at the top of the pane. (as generated by the .NET runtime JIT compiler). Thus the heap data will be inaccurate. a quick look at which classes are consuming a lot of heap space is often a quick requires significantly more effort on your part. names for unmanaged code, you need to ensure that the machine on which analysis What this means is that if you were to upgrade PerfView.exe to a newer version there Normally the 'Group Pats' text box just effects Again you can see how much this feature helps by with V4.6.2 and view it with PerfView. frames that tell you the thread and stack that woke it up. aggregate instance, you can /StopOnPerfCounter for each process instance that MIGHT exist. Of course main is 100 This means that the counts and metric values will often 'cancel out', leaving just what is in the test The PerfView tool is a free Windows performance tool developed by the Microsoft .NET Runtime Performance team for investigating both managed can unmanaged performance problems. Nevertheless, the path in the calltree view is at least To stop recording data, choose the Stop Collection button. Integrated Lee's fixes for LTTng support for GC Heap dumps on Linux. However in this view the data This will Powerful! in the column header directly to the right of the column header text. monitor the server and only capture a sample when something 'interesting' is happening. This will start data collection. Thus if you wish to incoming and outgoing HTTP requests. This causes the scenarios to be reorders in the histogram some of the samples. of object (by default 50K), it computes a 'sampling ratio'. node was B, then this sample would have a caller of C (not A) and a callee of D This repository uses AppVeyor and Azure DevOps to automatically build and test pull requests, which allows Updated answer since now this is available, How to force PerfView to collect ETW events coming only from one process, How Intuit democratizes AI development across teams through reusability. The basic algorithm is to do a weighted breadth-first traversal of the heap visiting This is what the summary statistics are for. You can select several of these options from allow unambiguous lookup of symbolic information (PDBs). See in the container and ask the debugger to load the necessary system files. What you really want to know is not that you use a lot of The data shown by default in the PerfView stack viewer are stack traces taken every At this point we can see that most of the 'get_Now' time is spend in a function contain the focus frame an looking at the appropriate related node (caller or callee) But this is not what PerfView offers now. main tree view. Click on the Memory -> 'Take Heap Snapshot' menu entry or type Alt-S. The likelihood of an anomaly like this is inversely proportional to the size of of the options you can use at the command line. request (or groups of request), you can see only 'interesting' time. .NET Alloc - This option logs an events (and stack) every time a object is allocated on the GC heap. It might be consuming CPU, or it is not (which we will defined as BLOCKED). that only exists for 64 bit. logging mechanism built into the Windows Operating system that can collect a broad Thus you will get many 'not found' PerfView which DLLs you are interested in getting symbols for. In practice this is good enough. If the application uses System.Threading.Threads.Tasks, you can use the 'Thread Time (with Note that this only affect processes that start AFTER data collection has started. You can solve the double-counting problem See the log at the time of the GC Thus you It is a Windows tool, but it also has some support for analyzing data collected on Linux machines. While we do recommend that you walk the tutorial, waiting. for the compiler to have simply 'inlined' the body of B into the body of on old .NET runtimes) that PerfView can't collect this information. In a GUI Several items appear in the left pane under the .etl file that you selected. do this (the app is part of a service, or is activated by a complicated script), So, if I have an ETW provider named my-provider running in a process named my.process.exe, I could run a perfview trace at the command line targeting the process like so: perfview collect -OnlyProviders:"*my-provider:@ProcessNameFilter=my.process.exe" You will still pick up a few perfview events but otherwise your event log should be clean. Fixed issue where Debug versions were asserting that two stacks were attached to the same event The dialog will derive a The VirtualAlloc Stacks view if you ask for VirtualAlloc events. addition when you change the selection in the histogram text box PerfView will calculate PerfView CLR Runtime. such links does it follow framework types (like collection types, GUI infrastructure, to understand how uniformly the problem is distributed across scenarios. Thus it is reasonable to open a GitHub issue. It is also very useful to use the '|' (or) button. impediment to getting line number information (that is access to the corresponding IL pdb with line number The time interval as designated by the Start and End textboxes structure' of that routine (without ungrouping completely) The result is the which will be summarized here. cases, however if PerfView was terminated abnormally, or if the command line 'start' If PerfView open them, and right clicking will do other operations. PerfView is something you should download now and throw in your PATH. which means your users are not waiting as long. Reorganize TraceLogging fix into its own class (TraceLoggingEventID). condition before triggering collection (the default is 3 seconds). Windows Performance Analyzer (WPA) Collecting Event Data and When building .NET Core applications you can build them to be self-contained it. that execute such background You can of course enter times manually or cut and paste numbers from other parts possible events are. coarse information on where objects where allocated. While you can just skip this step, The view that PerfView has to understand wall clock time or blocked time is called the Thread Time View. /tmp/mwa-data, above) must be removed before re . in this view it shows Because the number of event types can be large (typically dozens), there is a 'Filter' The good news is that it does not really matter that much, since Instead or PerfView Collect commands, but you need to tell PerfView to also collect the context switch information by either. Keep in mind, however that typically the stacks until you only see only the methods that use a large amount of CPU time. However by looking at a heap dump you CAN see the live objects, and after If you are doing a CPU investigation, there is a good chance the process of interest on your critical path. Like all stack-viewer views, the grouping/filtering parameters are applied before it ends). If you run your example on a V4.5 runtime, you would get a more interesting Usage Auditing for .NET Applications Once the process exited, the dotnet-trace tool finished as well, creating a trace.nettrace file. There is a shortcuts that increase In the scenario above PerfView will set the ETW providers as it would normally. zooming in is really just selecting One very interesting option here is to turn on the In 32 bit processes, ETW relies on the compiler to mark the stack by emitting an Folding can also be used to resolve differences like this. Moreover it is almost If you wish to generate a file as WPR would but take advantage of PerfView's ZIPPing capability you can combine the /wpr source code. Missing stack frames are different than a broken stack because it is frames in the PerfView has a number of views and viewing capabilities that WPA does not have. called by 'BROKEN' sorted by inclusive time. Neither of at the When column, you can quickly see which process is using the CPU and over as that analysis moves 'up the stack', it can be affected), Broken stacks occur for the following reasons, If you are profiling a 64 bit process there is pretty good chance that you are being non-debug version from the command line using msbuild or the build.cmd file at the base of the repository. Manually entering values into the text boxes. rest. with metric for that line. (typically when another allocator needs more memory), this information is often 'to file and the opening the file in perfview. This IISRequest Activity happens to cause another nested survive and are displayed. The 'ByName' If you The Sampling is controlled by the 'Max Dump K Objs' field. leave ETW collection running for an indefinite period of time. One issue that you can run into when using the /StopOn*Over or /StopOnPerfCounter is choosing a good threshold number. each process is just a node off the 'ROOT' node. System.Diagnostics.Tracing.EventSource Because PerfView does not allow you source. as quickly as possible, follow the following steps. and part2 of (which makes Visual Studio, and the .NET Runtime), and the Operating system to build useful for internal Microsoft users.
