.NET Process type of profiling allows you to profile any managed application that is started after clicking Run.
After you click Run, the main dotMemory window will appear. From this point on, dotMemory is ready to hook into any managed application that is launched.
Filtering Child Processes
If you want to profile only specific child processes, you can set up a process filter. The filter is a semicolon-separated list of process names that must not be profiled.
To use a process filter
- Select Profile child processes.
- In Excluding, add process name masks separated by semicolon (;).
- The default policy is "profile all".
- There can be only "exclude" masks. Therefore, any filter mask you add means "do not profile anything that matches this mask".
- The asterisk
*wildcard is supported.
For example, if you add the
service* mask, all processes which name starts with
service will be ignored by the profiler.
