What does purple colour mean?

  • 1
    The colours are: Blue: Indicating time spent creating drawing commands Orange: Issuing the commands Yellow: Waiting for the commands to complete. For more info look here: stackoverflow.com/questions/17854103/… Also, please ignore my answer. I was completely wrong. I thought you meant talking about the blue!! – George Nov 27 '14 at 19:25
  • Yeah, thanks for the link, but there is nothing about purple there. – user1685095 Nov 27 '14 at 19:32
  • Sorry that I can't really help you, as I don't know either. It's an excellent question though! +1 – George Nov 27 '14 at 21:52

Purple is "prepare"

It has been added in Lollipop, so now we get: draw (blue), prepare (purple), process (red), execute (yellow)

If you do adb shell dumpsys gfxinfo, the table for each app now has 4 columns (with prepare added between draw and process)

I have yet to find any documentation on this yet :)
