Still stays in mode Performing first GC

Postby MiSchnee » Mon Jul 29, 2013 5:45 am


I'm working with .Net Memory Profiler 4.5 and want to profile my application working with .Net Framework 4.0.
When I start collecting snapshot, the dialog opens but still stays in mode Performing first GC.

Does anybody know why the collecting snapshot doesn't continue?

Thanks in advance,

It's strange that the profiler gets stuck when performing the first GC. It indicates that the profiler has successfully connected to the profiled process, but get stuck for some reason while "cleaning up" the GC heap. Nothing complicated is performed during the first GC, which makes this problem a bit unexpected,

To get more information about your error, it would be good if you could provide us with logs from the profiler.

You can create log-files by using the command line below. This will create a set of log-files in the c:\MemProfilerLogs directory.

"C:\Program Files\SciTech\NetMemProfiler4\NetMemProfiler.exe" /log:c:\MemProfilerLogs

Can you send the log-files to so that we can investigate this further?
Best regards,
