A new version of tracy has been released. A short summary of the new features:
Complete list of features:
- Breaking change: the format of trace files has changed.
- Previous tracy version will crash when trying to open new traces.
- Loading of traces saved by previous version is supported.
- Tracy will no longer crash when trying to load traces saved by future
versions. Instead, a dialog advising to update will be displayed.
- Tracy will no longer crash in most cases when trying to open files that
are not traces. Some crashes are still possible, due to support of old,
- Ability to track every memory allocation in profiled program.
- Allocation event queuing must be done in order, which requires exclusive
access to the serialized queue on the client side. This has no effect on
the rest of events, which are stored in a concurrent queue, as before.
- You can search for a memory address and see where it was allocated, for
how long, etc. This lists all matching allocations since the program was
- All active (non-freed) allocations may be listed. This shows the current
memory state by default, but can go back to any point in time.
- Graphical representation of process memory map may be displayed. New
allocations/frees are displayed in a bright color and fade out with
time. This feature also can look back in time.
- Memory usage plot is automatically generated.
- Basic allocation information is displayed in memory plot tooltips.
- A summary of memory events within a zone (and its children) is now
printed in zone info window.
- Support loading profile dumps with no memory allocation data (generated by
- Added ability to display global statistics of a selected zone from the
zone info window.
- Fixed regression with lock announce processing that appeared during
- Allow selecting/unselecting all locks for display.
- Performance improvements.
- Don't save unneeded lock information in trace file.
- Don't save thrash in message list data.
- Allow expanding view span up to one hour, instead of one minute.
- Added trace comparison window.
- An external trace has to be loaded first.
- Zone query in both traces (current and external).
- Both results are overlaid on the same histogram.
- Graphs can be adjusted as-if there was the same number of zones
- Read time directly from a hardware register on ARM/ARM64, if possible.
- User-space access to the timer needs to be enabled in the kernel, so
tracy will perform run-time checks and fallback to the old method if the
- Prevent connections in a TIME-WAIT state from blocking new listen
- Display y-range of plots.
- Added ability to unload traces loaded from files. To do so close the main
profiler window. You will return to the connect/open selection dialog.
Live captures cannot be terminated this way.
- Zones previously displayed in zone info window are remembered and you can
go back to them. Closing the zone info window or switching between CPU and
GPU zones will clear the memory.
- Improved message list window.
- Messages are now displayed in columns.
- Originating thread of each message is now included in the list.
- You can now navigate to next and previous frame.
- Zone statistics can be now displayed using only self times.
- Support for tracing GPU events using Vulkan.
- Timeline will now display "OpenGL context" or "Vulkan context" instead of
- Fixed regression causing invalid display of GPU context appearance time.
- Fixed regression causing invalid reporting of an active CPU in zone end
events, if MSVC rdtscp optimization was not enabled.
- Ability to collect true call stacks.
- Supported on Windows, Linux, Android.
- The following events can collect call stacks:
- Memory alloc/free.
- Zone begin.
- GPU zone begin.
- Zone stack trace now also displays frames from a real call trace.
- On Linux call stack frame name resolution requires a call to dladdr,
which in turn requires linking with libdl.
- Allow manual entry of GPU time drift value.
- Unix build system no longer shares object files between different build
- Fixes inability to build debug and release versions of a single utility
without "make clean".
- Fixes incompatibility between "standalone" and "capture" utilities due
to different set of used feature flags.
- On Windows "standalone" utility now adapts to system DPI setting.
- Optional per-call zone naming.
