The status bar has three main sections, from left to right:
•the message line
•data collection statistics
Most of the time, you'll just see this:
When you hover your mouse over a toolbar button or a menu item for a short time, a help message appears in the status bar describing the button's action.
The data statistics counts give a guideline indicator of how data is being collected by the stub and sent to Performance Validator.
This collection data has a few counters and a collection status:
•Data items sent from stub that have been processed
•Symbols that have been processed
•Function performance entries in the function timing tree
•Number of line count timing entries
•Status indicating whether collection is currently on or off
The boxes stay gray when the values are static, but will be coloured for a few seconds when the value changes:
The value increased
The value decreased
The status of the flow trace indicates what is currently happening.
•Ready. Waiting to start a run, or a run has finished and is waiting for you to analyze the data.
•Starting. Starting a run (hooks being installed etc).
•Running. Target executable is hooked and running.
•Terminating. Target executable has entered ExitProcess but has not yet finished executing.
•Post Processing. Target executable has finished executing. There is data that still needs to be processed.
This displays No active session when there is no session running, terminating or loaded.
When a session is running, terminated or loaded, this displays the name of the target program followed by a timestamp.
