Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How to read Game/Render thread performance?

I'm working on performance analysis on Android phone, there's something I can't quite understand.

According to data I got from "stat startfile/stopfile", my games performance was like this.

 "GameThread [0x746f]","62.596 ms","100.0 %","0.000 ms","0.0 %","1.0",
     "FrameTime","62.550 ms","99.9 %","0.000 ms","0.0 %","2.0",
         "Total Slate Tick Time","32.848 ms","52.5 %","0.000 ms","0.0 %","1.0",
         "GameEngine Tick","20.715 ms","33.1 %","0.000 ms","0.0 %","1.0",
         "Frame Sync Time","8.668 ms","13.9 %","0.000 ms","0.0 %","1.0",
 "RenderThread [0x7489]","40.003 ms","63.9 %","0.000 ms","0.0 %","1.0",

As you can see, GameThead took far longer time than RenderThread. When I saw this at first I thought this was typical GameThread bottleneck case.

But there's "Frame Sync Time" which took 8.6 ms!!

What should I make of this? Is this GameThread bottleneck or RenderThread bottleneck?

I wonder what 'Frame Sync Time' is too... would that have anything to do with Vsync ?
