This table describes the call tree of the program, and was sorted by | |

the total amount of time spent in each function and its children. | |

Each entry in this table consists of several lines. The line with the | |

index number at the left hand margin lists the current function. | |

The lines above it list the functions that called this function, | |

and the lines below it list the functions this one called. | |

This line lists: | |

index A unique number given to each element of the table. | |

Index numbers are sorted numerically. | |

The index number is printed next to every function name so | |

it is easier to look up where the function in the table. | |

% time This is the percentage of the `total' time that was spent | |

in this function and its children. Note that due to | |

different viewpoints, functions excluded by options, etc, | |

these numbers will NOT add up to 100%. | |

self This is the total amount of time spent in this function. | |

children This is the total amount of time propagated into this | |

function by its children. | |

called This is the number of times the function was called. | |

If the function called itself recursively, the number | |

only includes non-recursive calls, and is followed by | |

a `+' and the number of recursive calls. | |

name The name of the current function. The index number is | |

printed after it. If the function is a member of a | |

cycle, the cycle number is printed between the | |

function's name and the index number. | |

For the function's parents, the fields have the following meanings: | |

self This is the amount of time that was propagated directly | |

from the function into this parent. | |

children This is the amount of time that was propagated from | |

the function's children into this parent. | |

called This is the number of times this parent called the | |

function `/' the total number of times the function | |

was called. Recursive calls to the function are not | |

included in the number after the `/'. | |

name This is the name of the parent. The parent's index | |

number is printed after it. If the parent is a | |

member of a cycle, the cycle number is printed between | |

the name and the index number. | |

If the parents of the function cannot be determined, the word | |

`<spontaneous>' is printed in the `name' field, and all the other | |

fields are blank. | |

For the function's children, the fields have the following meanings: | |

self This is the amount of time that was propagated directly | |

from the child into the function. | |

children This is the amount of time that was propagated from the | |

child's children to the function. | |

called This is the number of times the function called | |

this child `/' the total number of times the child | |

was called. Recursive calls by the child are not | |

listed in the number after the `/'. | |

name This is the name of the child. The child's index | |

number is printed after it. If the child is a | |

member of a cycle, the cycle number is printed | |

between the name and the index number. | |

If there are any cycles (circles) in the call graph, there is an | |

entry for the cycle-as-a-whole. This entry shows who called the | |

cycle (as parents) and the members of the cycle (as children.) | |

The `+' recursive calls entry shows the number of function calls that | |

were internal to the cycle, and the calls entry for each member shows, | |

for that member, how many times it was called from other members of | |

the cycle. | |
