Managing Memory Analysis sessions: The Session View

The Session View window lets you manage your Memory Analysis sessions, which keep data about memory errors and events from specific application runs. Session elements allow you to quickly filter the data, for example by file, process, or thread. Double-clicking a session opens the Memory Analysis editor, which displays the session's data.

The view lists all of the sessions that you've created in your workspace while running programs with Memory Analysis enabled. Each session is identified by a name, timestamp, and an icon that indicates its current state. The icons indicate state as follows:
This session is open and can be viewed in the Memory Analysis editor.
This session is closed and cannot currently be viewed.
This session is still running on the target. You can select the session and view its incoming trace data. You also can change settings dynamically and run leak detection or dump memory usage statistics from the IDE.
The traces and events are being indexed. This icon appears only if you stop the session or your process terminates. In the latter case, the indexing icon might appear for a few seconds. You should wait until indexing is finished to view session data, or it might be incomplete.

Right-clicking a session entry shows a context menu that lets you perform various operations on the session; these operations are described in the sections that follow.
