11.9 Enabling Android atrace annotations
Streamline supports atrace annotations on Android targets that are running Linux kernel versions 3.10 and later.
It supports the following application-generated macros:
Streamline converts these into hierarchical flame chart style string
Streamline converts these into non-hierarchical string annotations.
Streamline converts these into counters.
In addition, Streamline supports Android
ATRACE_TAG_* macros. Any atrace

events but none are displayed, click on the Warnings tag in the Counter

is available in the following locations:
