View a Recording Status
Updated: October 20, 2013
Applies To: Windows 8.1
After you start a recording in Windows® Performance Recorder (WPR), you can follow the status of the recording as it transpires. This article describes the recording status.
When you start a recording by using the WPR user interface (UI), the recording status immediately displays on the WPR screen. If you start a recording by using the WPR command-line interface, you can view the recording status by using either of the following methods:
In the command prompt window, type
wpr –status. For more information about this command, see Status.
Open the WPR UI. The status of the recording that you started from the WPR command line will display.
|WPR can only display a recording’s status if the recording is started by WPR. It cannot display recording status for recordings that are started by Xperf or other applications.|
The recording status displays the following information:
Recording Time: This is the length of time that the recording has been running.
Buffer: This is the buffer size that the recording is using. It is displayed in both MB and percentage of available pooled memory.
Events dropped: The number of lost events since the recording was started. For more information about this issue, see Avoid Lost Events.
