The debug screen is triggered when the F3 key is pressed. It shows the chunk cache, the memory usage, various parameters, the player`s map coordinates X, Y and Z coordinate on a Minecraft map. Coordinates numerically represent your location in a Minecraft world. They are based on a grid where three lines or axes intersect at the origin point. Players and a graph that measures the game`s current frame rate. It can be very useful for telling other players your map location and monitoring performance.

- When triggered in the Nether, the "B" (biome) displays the biome of "Hell".

- When used in a chunk that was created prior to Alpha 1.2 (when there were no biomes), the B field will read "Ocean".
- Deeper into the profiler (⃢₇₧ Shift+F3), some tasks will have numbers higher than 9 and can`t be accessed. Pressing the two keys simultaneously will not open the task.
When displaying reduced debug info, only the starred items are included.
|fps*||The frame rate (also known as frame frequency) is the frequency rate at which a video device produces unique consecutive images called frames. Frames are still pictures that when sequence together form a fluid animation that is the basis for all moving media. Frame rate is most often expressed in frames per second (FPS).|
|chunk updates*||Chunk updates are the number of 1-block spaces which have changed its state or content in the last second. This change in state can be caused by the addition or subtraction of blocks from the map, sugarcane growing, water or lava flowing, redstone contraptions, loading/unloading chunks, and more. Chunk updates are usually high right after map generation.|
|C*||Number of chunk sections rendered over total number of chunks. Counts all render passes: if a chunk section is rendered twice (because it contains both water and normal blocks, for example) then it will be counted twice.|

|pU*||Pending uploads to video card|
|aB*||Available buffers to use in the batching process|

The second number is the amount of light from the sky at the block your feet are in. Same caveat as above.
|Local Difficulty||Shows the difficulty of the chunk the player is in. See Difficulty Mobs in full armor are a common sight in higher difficulty levels.

Pie charts in the lower right of the ⃢₇₧ Shift+F3 debug screen display real time profiling information. More detailed information about one section can be displayed by using the keys 1-9. Press 0 to go back to the previous section.
Frame time graph
Bar chart in the lower left of the Alt+F3 debug screen displays real time measurement of seconds per frame with lines marking 1/60s and 1/30s per frame. The graph is color coded from green to yellow to red, with green being faster frame time, red being slower frame time, and yellow in between.
Text will be shown in chat for most debug keys listed here. Note that when using a specific key combination like F3+N, F3+B, etc., the debug screen will not open.
