      Hmm... this post seems written hastily and presents an unsupported tool with a link to a blog post that is already more than six years old.

      Instead of screenshots where I don't see what it is you want to show I'd be much more interested in reading about how you used this tool to solve a performance issue.

      What conclusions did you draw from the data you found with the tool?

      How did you go about analysing a performance problem?

      Simply getting the tool to display something isn't really all that much to write about.
