Snapshot size for long running process

If I start a timeline profile of my application and leave it running for many hours before taking a snapshot, will dotTrace automatically limit the size of the snapshot file?

Thank you for contacting us.

dotTrace does not limit the size of the snapshot file. It is limited to physical memory.
Note that if there is not enough space on the disk, big snapshots may not be processed or opened (more space is required than the size of the snapshot file).

You can get snapshot by timeout with dotTrace Command Line Tools:
Pefrorm dotTrace.exe start c:\MyApp\App.exe --timeout=2h  command, profiler automatically takes a snapshot after 2 hours.
Perfrorm dotTrace.exe help start to read more about --timeout option.
