methods CPU Times

Postby Gustavo Woltmann » Wed Feb 24, 2016 11:48 pm


Could someone explain me why the methods CPU Times are always different when sucessive profilings are made for the same application on the same conditions?

I'm running on Windows Xp, and I tried both sampling and tracing profiling methods.

Thank you.

Do you use sampling or tracing?
Sampling as approximate by its nature.
With tracing, wall time is recorded by default, so any side effects such as other applications running in parallel which which your application shared CPU resources may cause fluctuations:
