How to: Configure Profiling Marks

Profiling marks are data points that can be inserted into profiler data file during the performance session. Marks can be used to filter the data that is displayed in the Profiling Tools Report views. The profiling marks that are available in a performance session are shown in the Marks list of the Data Collection Control window. A list of default marks are created with every session. Profiling marks are listed in a row with a numeric identifier and a name.

You can modify the mark names, and add and remove marks in the Data Collection Control window. If the Data Collection Control window is not displayed, on the Analyze menu, point to Windows, and then click Data Collection Control.
