I run into the following problem when try to collect data:
7/6/2017 3:28:51 PM Collection failed. The data cannot be displayed.
Failed to get a thread handle when attaching to the process due to OS error (Access is denied.
). Data for the thread will not be collected.
The OS: Windows 10.
Target application: MSSQL2014 (sqlservr.exe) and it is Log On as "Network Service", Session 0.
I try to use "Attach to Process" & Basic Hotspots.
I suppose that this process is protected from some access rights required for user-mode profiling. In this case I can suggest to use "advanced-hotspots" as a workaround or. to try to come around the basic-hotspots issue. I assume it can be done in the following ways:
1. to decrease protection for a running process if you can control this.
2. to try an instruction for attachment to system processes got from "Troubleshooting" section of Amplifier's help:
