Creating a Read-only Result Snapshot

Only the active result for a project can be modified by collecting new data. You can create a read-only result snapshot after you collect data from one or more Intel Advisor tools. To create a snapshot of a result and save its data in a read-only result:

  1. Display the active result (not a read-only result snapshot).
  2. Click the camera button next the window caption. The Create a Result Snapshot dialog box appears.
  3. Type the Result name of the Intel Advisor read-only result. Provide a unique name, perhaps by adding an identifying suffix within the result name.
  4. Click OK. With a large result, you may need to wait as the read-only result gets created.

You can visually compare saved read-only results against the current active result or other read-only results. The read-only result appears in the Visual Studio Solution Explorer and the Intel Advisor GUI Project Navigator. The words (read-only) appear after the name of a read-only result in the result tab. The icon of a read-only result differs from that of the active result.

Although you can only collect data to update the active project, you can update your sources regardless of what type of result (or project) you have open.
