Callgraph Perspectives

The Callgraph view's toolbar allows you to select a perspective and perform other functions.

Radial View

The Radial View displays all functions branching out from main(), with each function represented as a node. A purple node means that the program terminates at the function. A green node signifies that the function call has nested functions, whereas gray nodes signify otherwise. Double-clicking on a node will show its parent (colored pink) and children. The lines connecting different nodes also display how many times main() called each function.

The left window of the Radial View lists all of the functions shown in the view. This window also allows you to view nested functions, if any. A green bullet point means the program either starts or terminates at that function.

Tree View

The Tree View is similar to the Radial View, except that it only displays all descendants of a selected node ( Radial View only displays functions one call depth away from a selected node). The top left of Tree View also includes a thumbnail viewer to help you navigate through different call depths of the function tree.

Level View

Level View displays all function calls and any nested function calls branching out from a selected node. However, Level View groups all functions of the same call depth together, giving a clearer visualization of a program's function call execution sequences.

Level View also lets you navigate through different call depths using the thumbnail viewer's More nodes above and More nodes below buttons.

Aggregate View

The Aggregate View depicts all functions as boxes; the size of each box represents a function's execution time relative to the total running time of the program. Darker-colored boxes represent functions that are called more times relative to others; for example, in the following figure, the CallThisThirtyTimes function is called the most number of times (150).
