Use limited the size of heap to run Intel® Thread Checker with application

Product Version: 3.0 & 3.1

Operating System: Microsoft* Windows* XP, Microsoft* Vista*, Microsoft* 2003 Server

Problem Description:We recently received several problem reports. If the size of user's application is extreme big, the user complained that the application (launched by Thread Profiler) ran slowly.

Cause:Thread Profiler's engine uses 600MB (default) in the heap. If the application also needs to consume higher memory space in the heap and the user works on lower hardware (memory) configuration, it causes this problem

Resolution:  Use "Configuration Intel® Thread Checker" -> "Execution" tab -> "Limit the size of the heap of the heap used by the analysis engine to [ ] MB", adjust to smaller number. Note when Thread Checker reaches the memory limit, it may discard older statistics, causing some loss of results.
