Collecting cache miss rate of browsing websites using Chrome

Hello, 

I'm new to Vtune and want to use it to learn the overall cache miss rate of browsing websites using Chrome for a long time period (around 30 mins). I've read the notes about how  to record cache miss event with Vtune. The problem I have so far is, after I start the analysis, chrome is launched and the analysis stopped immediately after the first website is loaded. How could I keep the analysis on for a period of time so I can collect the data of browsing different website?

Hello,

One possible way to resolve this is to profile in system-wide mode. To do this go to project settings and change the combo-box on the top from 'Launch Application' to 'Profile System'. 

Also note that by default VTune limits collected data by 500MB - since you are going to profile for a long period you'll probably need to increase it (setting it to 0 will disable the limitation at all).
