Error using command in CLI

Hi,
While I try to execute the "command" action in CLI.
The steps followed were:
1.Start a collection. For example: $inspxe-cl -collect mi2 -r newfolder /home/../
2.In another window try :
$ inspxe-cl -command memory-growth-start -r newfolder.
This gives following as message:
Warning: Cannot open/write to file: [/home/ssantosh/work/hot/inspxe-runmc.txt]
Warning: Non-fatal internal problem was detected and logged.
Error: An internal error has occurred. Our apologies for this inconvenience. Please gather a description of the steps leading up to the problem and contact the Intel customer support team.

Request to give some inputs on this.

Hi,

I cannot reproduce this problem on my side, here are steps:

1. Use a simplest case, in a loop to allocate small memory and wait 5 seconds in each iteration...elapsed timewill be10 minutes. See below mem_growth.c

[cpp]#include #define MAX_NUM 120 /* total 120 times to allocate memory, elapsed time 600s */ int main() { char *str[MAX_NUM]; int i; for (i=0; i = (char *) malloc (16*sizeof(char)); sleep (5); /* wait 5 seconds, each time */ } return 1; } [/cpp]



2.gcc -g mem_growth.c -o mem_growth

3.inspxe-cl -collect mi3 -- ./mem_growth

4. In other console, do
a)inspxe-cl -command memory-growth-start -r r001mi3 ; wait for awhile
b) inspxe-cl -command memory-growth-end -r r001mi3

5. In original console, after 10 minutes, will see -
[root@NHM02 problem_report]# inspxe-cl -collect mi3 -- ./mem_growth
Used suppression file(s): []

2 new problem(s) found
1 Memory growth problem(s) detected
1 Memory leak problem(s) detected

6. You may useinspxe-gui to check, in detail

I also build example code / testedmemory-growthwith non-root user, set result directory in /tmp. It works.

My inspector XE 2011 version:
[peter@NHM02 problem_report]$ inspxe-cl -version
