Taking a snapshot of an active session

The snapshot feature lets you capture profiling data from a running application at a certain time so you can compare this data with the data from later points in time.

To take a snapshot:
Select an active (running) profiling session and click the Take Snapshot of the running session icon () in the toolbar.
The IDE creates a new session that stores the snapshot data. For details on reading this data, see the Execution Time view reference.
