The next version of Runtime Flow adds the Summary only monitoring option for a quick overview of an application:

While Full monitoring monitors each function call, Summary only detects only the first function usage. The Runtime Flow window is empty in this mode and the Runtime Summary window shows almost the same content as in the full monitoring mode:

The only visible difference is in the Clear command usage. In the Full monitoring mode, after clearing the events, each function call adds a function to the summary window. In the Summary only mode – only functions that was never used before will be added to the summary window when called.

Summary only monitoring is very fast and well suited for an application reconnaissance with the empty module filter.
