In phase-based profiles, we see the relationship between routines and parent phases. Phase profiles do not show the calling structure between different routines as is represented in a callgraph. To do so, TAU provides callpath profiling capabilities where the time spent in a routine along an edge of a callgraph is captured. Callpath profiles present the full flat profiles of routines (or nodes in the callgraph), as well as routines along a callpath. A callpath is represented syntactically as a list of routines separated by a delimiter. The maximum depth of a callpath is controlled by an environment variable.
