dotMemory 2021.2 Help

Profile Running Process

To profile an already running process

  1. Run dotMemory as a standalone application. The dotMemory Home window will open.

  2. Under Choose what you want to profile, Running Process, select the process you are going to profile. If the process you are looking for is missing, click Show All Processes to grant dotMemory administrative permissions.

  3. Optionally, if your application creates a number of processes and you want to profile only specific ones, create process filters.

  4. Click Start. This will start the profiling session.

  5. Go through a particular workflow in your application (if you want to check it on potential memory issues) or reproduce a particular memory issue. Collect memory snapshots using the Get Snapshot button. Learn more about how to control the profiling session

  6. After you collect the data, either close the profiled application or detach the profiler using the Detach button.

  7. Analyze the collected snapshots.
