Take a snapshot of a profile session

This feature lets you freeze the current state of the Application Profiler data while the actual session data keeps changing. The snapshot data remains frozen and can later be compared with the final results, or other snapshots of the same session. However, in the Execution Time view, this action also automatically switches to a comparison mode to dynamically show the updated difference between the current state and the snapshot.

To take a snapshot:

  1. In the Profiler Sessions view, select a running profile and click the icon from the toolbar Take Snapshot of the running session.
