Take Long time to save the .etl file for a Basic Capture RRS feed

  • Question

  • I capture a etl trace with Light setting and to memory, before the trace file gets opened in WPA, it takes a very long time .

    I have observed that Procmon the same when stopping a capture, even though I capture for 30 seconds (Start and Stop),  it would take atleast 30 minutes before it comes out of the No responding mode.

    The WPR capture was taken for a minute and it took 25 minutes to commit a 1 minute capture.

    I see Trace RunDown as the maximum capture, I understand that its the data collected after we click on Save of WPR.

    Please suggest what is taking so much  time to process, 

    I have enough disk space and 16 GB Ram with available as 8 GB.

  • Found the cause to be a SD memory card that was attached in my Laptop, I forgot to take it out after copying the Photos, took a process dump and found that it was waiting on some disk in the stack, that is the time I realized about the SD card :)


    Both WPR and Procmon works the way it should, I feel happy about troubleshooting the issue myself and resolving it.
