6.6. The call chains report

The call chains report is laid out in a table format like the other reports discussed in this chapter, but here the data is presented hierarchically. The call chains report is intended to show you the exact code hierarchy as captured during execution. If a function is called in multiple places in the hierarchy, each instance appears as an individual 'link' in the call chains report. The call chains report's set of column headers is similar to those in the functions report:

For a description of each of these column headers, see Table report column headers.

In the call chains report, the data is broken down by instance, so that you can get a clear view of how different functions performed at every place they occur in the call chain.

Double-clicking on a row in the call chains report opens up that function in the call summary, a graphical view of a function's callee and caller relationships, overlaid with statistics.
