Named threads are very useful if you want to use the thread filter to display data.


Filtering threads with real names make it much easier to watch events than using a thread id, especially as thread ids are quite likely be different between sessions.

extern "C" 
void mvSetThreadName(DWORD              threadID,   // id identifying a thread (CreateThread, CreateProcess, beginthread(), beginthreadex(), GetCurrentThreadId()...)
                     const TCHAR*    name);
