Unable to track unmanaged resources

Post by ThomasM » Thu Mar 14, 2013 12:28 pm

Hi,

I am profiling a remote process(Attached Process).

In the "Native Memory" tab I have noticed a continues increase of private memory and more specific in the "Other data" -> item "Unidentified".

To see what is going on with that "Unidentified" piece of memory I would like to use the "Enable track unmaganed resources".

I have checked the option in "Tools->Options->General ->Enable unmanaged resources tracker".

When I have started the profiling session I see in "View->Session Property Pages->General" that the "Enable track unmaganed resources" is not checked.

What am I doing wrong ? or is it already tracking it and where am I to find the tracked unmanged resources info ?

Thanks in advance

Grtz

Thomas

It is not possible to enable the unmanaged resources tracker when attaching to a process. To use the resource tracker, you must start the profiled process from the profiler (e.g. by using the "Profile application" command).
