Comparison report not matching function names

When I compare 2 results sets the comparison report (bottom-up) just contains duplicates for most of the functions with 0 time in alternate columns.  Basically it is not matching the functions from the 2 runs.

The 2 runs are with slightly different executables but they are essentially 99.9% the same.  Any hints on why VTune is not identifying the functions as being the same?

Hello,

So you can add "-group-by=source-function" to your command line report, or change grouping in grid to "Source function":

Hi Jon,

Here is the guideline of  VTune for the result comparison:

 Binary recompiled: compare based on source function
 Changes inside a function: compare based on functions level
 Functions changed: source files level
 Source files changed: compare by modules

Thanks

Thanks Dmiitry,

Selecting "Source function / Function / Call Stack" as the grouping works.  I did try some of the groupings before but obviously missed this one.
