Change the Logging Mode

Updated: October 20, 2013

Applies To: Windows 8, Windows 8.1

This procedure shows how to change the Windows® Performance Recorder (WPR) logging mode from the user interface (UI). For information about how to start a recording from the command line, see WPR Command-Line Options.

  1. Click Windows Performance Recorder on the Windows® 8 Start screen.

  2. Click More options.

  3. Select the logging mode from the Logging mode drop-down list. The default mode is Memory.

For longer recordings, select Memory. When you select File, the file can grow very large because the available disk space is the only limitation to file size. If the file is too large, you might not be able to analyze it in Windows® Performance Analyzer (WPA).
