Description This runs a macro just like /mac does, but when the macro ends it will output a csv file of every subroutine that has been called, and how long it took. The file will be in Macros/profiles, named for the macro and the time it started.



The output file contains one line per subroutine call, in the order they were called in. The columns are:

  • Command Count - how many commands (lines) have been run * from the start of the macro to now
  • Seconds Since Start - how long the macro's been running
  • Stack Depth - how many subroutines deep we are (Main is one, anything called from Main is 2, next call is 3, etc)
  • Subroutine - Name of the sub
  • Subroutine (tabbed) - Name of the sub, but with a few spaces for each increase in depth so it looks kinda tree like
  • Commands (inc Children) - How many commands were executed by this sub and any subs it called
  • Commands (ex Children) - How many commands were executed by just this subroutine, not including those executed by called subs
  • ms inc - How long did this sub and its children take to run
  • ms ex - How long did just this sub take to run, excluding time taken by its called subs
  • Called Children - How many other subs were called by this sub (does not include subs called by children)
  • Return Value - Value from /return if any
  • Arguments - Arguments supplied to the sub, one per column

Goes nicely with a pivot table in excel, e.g. with this setup:


Gives this sort of output, e.g. from kiss11:


Can quickly see that a lot of time gets spent in the CheckHealth & RezCheck subs.
