Copying Snapshots to Another Computer

Snapshots are stored on the disk as a number of separate files of various formats. To simplify copying snapshots to another computer, dotTrace introduces the export functionality. This allows you to save a snapshot as a single archive applicable for further distribution.

To export a snapshot to a file:

  1. In the dotTrace Home window, do one of the following:
      1. On the left panel, choose Recent | Snapshots.
      2. In the list of snapshots, find a desired snapshot and click the corresponding Export to File button.
      1. On the left panel, choose Recent | Launches.
      2. Find a profiling launch configuration which was used to collect a desired snapshot.
      3. Expand the profiling launch configuration by clicking >.
      4. In the list of snapshots, find a desired snapshot and click the corresponding Export to File button.
  2. Select a folder where you want a snapshot archive to be saved and click OK.

To open the exported snapshot on another computer with installed dotTrace:

  • Double-click the snapshot file.
    This will open the snapshot in the corresponding dotTrace viewer.
