Global Illumination Profiler

The Global Illumination ProfilerA window that helps you to optimize your game. It shows how much time is spent in the various areas of your game. For example, it can report the percentage of time spent rendering, animating or in your game logic. More info
See in Glossary
shows statistics and how much CPU time is consumed by the real-time Global Illumination (GI) subsystem across all worker threads. GI is managed in Unity by a piece of middleware called EnlightenThe lighting system by Geomerics used in Unity for computing global illumination (GI). More info
See in Glossary
. See documentation on Global Illumination for more information.

Name Description
Total CPU Time Total Enlighten CPU time across all threads.
Probe Update Time Time spent updating Light ProbesLight probes store information about how light passes through space in your scene. A collection of light probes arranged within a given space can improve lighting on moving objects and static LOD scenery within that space. More info

.
Setup Time Time spent in the Setup stage.
Environment Time Time spent processing Environment lighting.
Input Lighting Time Time spent processing input lighting.
Systems Time Time spent updating Systems.
Solve Tasks Time Time spent running radiosity solver tasks.
Dynamic Objects Time Time spent updating Dynamic GameObjectsThe fundamental object in Unity scenes, which can represent characters, props, scenery, cameras, waypoints, and more. A GameObject’s functionality is defined by the Components attached to it. More info

.
Time Between Updates Time between Global Illumination updates.
Other Commands Time Time spent processing other commands.
Blocked Command Write Time Time spent in blocked state, waiting for command buffer.
Blocked Buffer Writes Number of writes to the command buffer that were blocking.
Total Light Probes Total number of Light Probes in the SceneA Scene contains the environments and menus of your game. Think of each unique Scene file as a unique level. In each Scene, you place your environments, obstacles, and decorations, essentially designing and building your game in pieces. More info
See in Glossary
.
Solved Light Probes Number of solved Light Probes since the last update.
Probe Sets Number of Light Probe sets in the Scene.
Systems Number of Enlighten Systems in the Scene.
Pending Material GPU Renders Number of Albedo/Emission renders queued for renderingThe process of drawing graphics to the screen (or to a render texture). By default, the main camera in Unity renders its view to the screen. More info

on the GPU.
Pending Material Updates Number of Material updates waiting to get processed.
