Process Name (PID) in xperf and windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm running win7 x64 and i'm using the MS performance toolkit from http://download.microsoft.com/download/e/2/7/e2700369-d072-4fdc-a451-c3355eab0613/xperf_x64.msi

    I'm have touble finding the process names, xperf only shows the PID.

    I'm running a simple test:
        1- xperf -on diageasy
        2- xperf -d trace.etl
        3- xperf trace.etl
        4- Load Symbols Selected and the following command were used

            REM Microsoft Symbol Server-based configuration
            set _NT_SYMBOL_PATH=srv*%SystemDrive%\symbols*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols

            REM Configure SymCache to always use the System drive:
            set _NT_SYMCACHE_PATH=%SystemDrive%\SymCache


    If i look at the "CPU Usage by Process" graph and expand the list of process i only get the PID of the process not the names, if i trigger the "summary Table" i also get empty values in the "Process Name" & 'Process" columns

    Regads.

  • The 3 MSI setup programs appear to be in the \Setup\WinSDKTools_amd64\cab1.cab file.  (At least, that is the case with the Windows 7 RC1 x64 SDK...)

  • Hi GoofyE,

    Seems you're using WPT 4.1.  Please download the Windows 7 RC1 SDK , which includes a newer version (4.5) of the WPT.

  • Hi No.Compromise,

    Thank you for your reply, in fact i am using the 4.1 version. I donloaded the ISO file (Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 3.5 SP1: RC) as per your recommendation but can't seem to find the msi file for xperf. any idea what is the name of the file?

    I also noticed the following information in the Release Notes file
             Tools Removed from this Release
              - wpfperf.msi (now included in the Windows Performance Toolkit suite)

    Regards.
