Profiler is either incredibly slow or unresponsive

I’ve taken a shower, gone out to eat, read some emails, all while waiting on the profiler (or more specifically, the Profiler View) to finish. It is still loading. Do I need to be more patient?

Woh! It finished! I think that took about 50 minutes? Is that normal?

EDIT: Tried to resize the profiler view window… and I’m now waiting another minute (at least) per resize. What gives?


Profiling time depends on your GPU/Driver/Sample, maybe you can try these:

  • a smaller sample
  • a more powerful GPU
  • update your driver

If it keeps 50 minutes, that’s unusual.
