dotMemory 2020.3 Help

Start Profiling Session

By default, your starting point in dotMemory is the Home page. Here you can start new profiling sessions or open the recent ones.

To start profiling of an application

  1. Choose the New Session | Local tab.

  2. In the central panel in Profile Application, select an application type.

  3. In the right panel, configure profiling settings as described in Configuring Profiling Process.

  4. Click Run.

To start profiling of an already running application

  1. Choose the New Session | Local tab.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • In the central panel in the list of processes, select the .NET process you want to profile.
      If the process you are looking for is missing, click Refresh to update the list of processes and/or click Show All Processes to grant dotMemory administrative permissions (this will show more processes running in the system).

    • Drag the Attach icon attach onto the application you want to attach to.

  3. In the right panel, configure profiling settings as described in Configuring Profiling Process.

  4. Click Run.

Another convenient and quick way to start profiling is to use one of the recent profiling configurations.

To start a recent profiling session

  1. Choose the Recent | Launches tab.
    For the convenience, the list of recent launches is also grouped by profiled applications. Thus, alternatively, you can choose a particular application name under the Recent tab.

  2. In the central panel find the required profiling configuration and click the corresponding Run button.
