Could you help me to understand what are the numbers next to the “Building edges from DisplayObject”, please?

Thank you in advance for help,
The number "x 3" means that "Building edges from DisplayObjects" happened 3 times. The time shown next to it is the total time for all three of these activities. The same is true for "Calculating dirty regions x 2" - it means that it happened twice. You shouldn't worry too much about the number of activities though, just the total time for them - e.g. if Flash Player didn't have anything to do, it might finish an activity almost immediately, and this would show up in Scout with a negligible time (e.g. a few microseconds) - that's not something you should worry about.
