SQL Server Database Experimentation Assistant - cannot set trace file size, end up with dozens of files RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am following the guide for capturing a trace in SQL Server Database Experimentation Assistant here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/dea/database-experimentation-assistant-capture-trace?view=sql-server-2017

    I am using DEA version 2.6. The article above states that I should be able to choose the capture trace file size for rolling over files. However, in version 2.6 I do not have the option to set trace file size.

    As a result, I end up with dozens of 500 MB files at the end of the capture. Then I am expected to sit there and replay each trace file, one by one. Is there any easier way of doing this, or of forcing the trace file to grow larger so I end up with less rollover files?

    My new capture screen:
