Hello,

I am a newbie to software profiling. Can somebody explain what transitions (between threads) means in the Concurrency analysis in the Intel VTune Amplifier?

Thanks,
Jon

Hi Jon,
It is not difficult that you can find this terminology from Helper - "The execution flow between threads where one thread signals to another thread waiting to receive that signal. For example, one thread attempts to acquire a lock held by another thread, which then releases it. The release acts like a signal to the waiting thread."
This info in timeline report to help user to understand Concurrency value in specific time stamp / range.
Regards, Peter
