Control Stack Depth

When recording particularly high-level points in an application, the stack frame count can result in a lot of information being collected; to achieve a quicker and clearer picture, it is better to limit the stack depth on the toolbar of either:

  • The Breakpoint and Markers window or
  • The Record & Analyze window

Access:    Analyzer | Record | Recorder

Set the recording stack depth in the numerical field on the toolbar of Breakpoints and Markers window or the Record & Analyze window


By default, the stack depth is set to four frames

The depth is relative to the stack level where the Debugger first encountered the recording marker; so, when recording begins, if the stack level is 6 and the stack depth is set to 3, the Debugger will record the levels between 6 and 9

For situations where the stack is very large, it is recommended that you first use a low stack depth of 2 or 3 and gradually increase it if necessary to expand the picture
