In VTune is it possible to generate sampling results for an .NET application(executable) for a running process? For me it is not possible to startmy .netapplication from with in vtune but vtune sampling wizard doesn't allowsampilng a running .net application?

One alternative is to run sampling as windows executable but all results for .net modules are included as other32 or in mscorwks.dll(it mainly works for unmanaged code only.)

Hi, like you have already found outthe easiest way to analyze a running process is start VTune analyzer (works for event based sampling) in the background with "no application to launch" option and collect sampling information. The VTune analyzer supports mixed mode (native and .c#/.NET) collection. Currently, it doesn't support attach/dettach to a running process.

In order to resolve the other32 did you try to start your application after starting the VTune analyzer? Or did you try to associate the other32 module(s)to the binary?

Thanks

Levent
