Dump file: Expanded instance data can not be larger than 4GB

Post by JLi » Wed Oct 01, 2014 6:57 am

Hi,

I am using version 4.6.77.0 and keep getting the following error message twice when opening dump files taken from a specific, quite large, process:

"The operation failed with the following error:
Expanded instance data can not be larger than 4GB."

What can I do to resolve this?

This is a limitation in the current version of the profiler. In the next version, 5.0, this limitation has been removed and you should be able to work with larger snapshots (and memory dump files). A preview of 5.0 will hopefully be available by the end of the month.

You can read a bit more about the 4GB limit in this post.
Best regards,

Thanks, that answered my question. Looking forward to version 5.0.
