WPA thread activity: Optimizing Code with Windows Power Tools

Thread activity inspection is another very handy technique to have. By inspecting how often each thread or a certain type of thread comes in can help you pinpoint power related issues. Here you are shown that the rendering thread of the Bouncing Sprite application is coming far too often which corresponds to that notoriously high FPS. Here you are shown how chart and filter settings to incorporate into your WPA in order to easily inspect threads coming in and more importantly if they are coming in too often. You will also be introduced to the Windows OS Timer Tick Rate Resolution change concept and how this can drastically effect overall power consumption on any Windows machine.
