Call Tree View

The Call Tree View shows where in your application memory was allocated from. Each allocation stores a callstack, these callstacks are combined into a tree of callstacks and the memory is aggregated for each symbol.

The Grouping Editor is a powerful way of breaking down this information into categories.

This is probably the most useful view in MemPro because it easily shows you where memory is going in your app.
