    Great show! Another non trivial case and brilliant solution! More examples with graph advanced settings are welcome! :)

    Hi, great show once again. Trey, where is it possible to find the background picture?

  • @Ronald: That was the Bing search page from Jan. 29. I don't know if it's available to download from bing.com anymore, but you can do a Bing search for "bing image archives" and find it. :)

    @Chad : Thanks, but it was the thread scheduling one :-)

  • You guys rock! Please continue your shows on WPT - these are very helpful.

    Amazing show. I have noticed that you have suport for wait chain analysis baked into WPA. This is not yet part of the official WPA tool. When will we get this?
    Wait chain analysis is pretty complex but possible right now. It would be a huge help for anyone analyzing wait chains when this functionality is also released!

    @Ronald: The thread scheduling picture is at least partially visible at: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/jj679884.aspx

    Check out the CPU Precise Graph section.
    Unfortunately one of the editors did cut it to make it fit the column width.
