Analyze Object Sets
An object set is a number of objects grouped by a specific condition. For example, all objects from Gen 2, or all objects retained by some other particular object, or all objects allocated by a specific call, and so on.
The object set is a main subject of your investigation. To help you analyze object sets, dotMemory can present them in a number of views described in this section:
- Group by Creation Stack Trace
Selecting a view
To select a certain view for an object set, click the corresponding item in the view list.
Exporting object set details
Sometimes, you may need to share details about a particular object set with other people. dotMemory lets you export the details to a file. Available file extensions: .json or .bson.
Exported data: for each instance in the set, dotMemory copies its outgoing references. The maximum depth of the reference tree is specified with the Depth parameter.
To export object set details to a file
On any object set analysis view, select the required object set.
In the context menu, choose Export objects....
Specify a filename, reference tree depth, file extension, and click Save.
