I am getting periodic error messages from VTune (with MS VC++ 6 and Intel C++ v7.0). When running a sampling activity and sampling level-1 cache misses and clockticks, I get the following error message in the output window at the bottom of the screen : "The sampling collector failed. There is not enough space on the disk to create a raw data file." In addition I get a message window pop-up saying:" An error occured during drill-down. Cause of error cannot be determined."
My disk has almost 30 gigs free space. I have increased the activity buffer size to 12kb, but that hasn't fixed the problem. This is a problem that crops up seemingly at random. Now what?
