Hot spots shows methods that consumed the most time. The host spots list is similar to the method list sorted by time, but it excludes the methods which do not consume time itself. I.e if the time was consumed only in called methods, then the caller method is not a host spot. In other words the most important methods for application performance are shown.
Profiler shows hot spots in CPU tracing, sampling and asynchronous sampling modes. For call counting mode the list is not available, because call stacks are not collected.
The hot spots are calculated based on current filters. Every time you change filters, you get the new list of hot spots.
