|On this tab of the filter settings, you define methods that will be split in the call tree view according to the result of a script invocation.|
Often, you can expect different performance characteristics for different parameter values of a method.
By splitting a method with a script, you can look at the call tree separately for all different values of a
parameter or any other calculated string.
Splitting a method is most easily done by selecting the method in the call tree view and invoking Split method with a Script from the context or "View" menu.
In the script editor, you can then enter a script whose return value of type java.lang.String will be used for splitting the call tree. Splitting nodes in the call tree show that string value and have a special icon.
You can temporarily disable a splitting script by deselecting the check box in front of the script configuration.
Call tree splitting scripts that create a different splitting string for each invocation can create a lot of overhead. To avoid excessive memory usage, method splitting is capped.
Apart from removing previously configured split methods, you can also add exceptional methods directly
on this tab of the filter settings. The following ways for selecting methods are available:
