Will dotTrace 4 support attaching to a running process?
This was sorely lacking in dotTrace 3.
I don't know if other products support this, but it would be extremely useful to be able to attach to a normally running process just before or, better yet, during an intensive operation to capture a trace.
Can you elaborate on this? I'm mostly interested in ASP.Net applications and attaching to IIS to profile a high CPU issue when it occurs. We can't just leave the profiler attached day and night waiting for an issue that may only occur once every other week as that presents a larger risk than the issue itself.
Are you saying when Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4 come out that if I recompile my application then I will be able to attach/detach to it in production without any user disruption? This would be fantastic if so.
