On the user interface for the Standard User Analyzer (SUA) tool, you can apply filters to the issues that the tool has found so that you can view only the information that interests you.

To apply filters to data in the SUA tool

  1. Use the SUA tool to test an application. For more information, see Using the SUA Tool.

  2. After you finish testing, in the SUA tool, click a tab that shows issues that the SUA tool has found. All tabs except the App Info tab can show issues.

  3. On the Options menu, click a command that corresponds to the filter that you want to apply. The following table describes the commands.

    Options menu command Description

    Filter Noise

    Filters noise from the issues.

    This command is selected by default.

    Load Noise Filter File

    Opens the Open Noise Filter File dialog box, in which you can load an existing noise filter (.xml) file.

    Export Noise Filter File

    Opens the Save Noise Filter File dialog box, in which you can save filter settings as a noise filter (.xml) file.

    Only Display Records with Application Name in StackTrace

    Filters out records that do not have the application name in the stack trace.

    However, because the SUA tool captures only the first 32 stack frames, this command can also filter out real issues with the application where the call stack is deeper than 32 frames.

    Show More Details in StackTrace

    Shows additional stack frames that are related to the SUA tool, but not related to the diagnosed application.

    Warn Before Deleting AppVerifier Logs

    Displays a warning message before the SUA tool deletes all of the existing SUA-related log files on the computer.

    This command is selected by default.


    Provides the following logging-related options:

    • Show or hide log errors.

    • Show or hide log warnings.

    • Show or hide log information.

    To maintain a manageable file size, we recommend that you do not select the option to show informational messages.
