Work with Workspaces

To store the results of your investigations, dotMemory uses workspaces. A workspace saves everything you see on the screen: all open analyses including all collected snapshots and analyses paths. In other words, it saves the current state of dotMemory.

Workspace files location

After the profiling session ends, the workspace is saved automatically to the default location C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\JetBrains\dotMemory\[version]\Workspaces.

To change the default workspace files location

  1. On the Home page, open Settings.

  2. In the Save Workspaces section, specify a new location in the Workspace files location field.

You can automate the cleanup of your workspace files location using the auto-deletion feature. dotMemory will automatically delete workspace files that were not opened in a specified amount of days. If you want to prevent a workspace from auto-deletion, you can mark it as favorite: click the Favorite workspace Add to favorites icon next to the workspace you don't want to be deleted.

To enable workspace location auto-cleanup

  1. On Home page, select Settings.

  2. In the Save Workspaces section, in Auto-delete workspaces that were not opened in last [ ] days, specify how many days workspaces must not be opened to qualify for auto-deletion.

Opening workspaces

  1. On the Home page, on the left panel, choose Workspaces.

  2. In the list of workspaces, double-click the desired workspace.

Importing and exporting workspaces

To export a workspace means to save it to a separate file applicable for further distribution.

To import a workspace means to open the exported workspace file.
