Analyze Results on Another Device

Applies To: Windows 8.1

You can run an assessment to collect traces on one PC, and analyze the data on another PC or at another time. You might want to collect traces without analysis in order to:

  • Run analysis on a PC with more memory or a faster processor

  • Delay analysis to free up time for other high priority uses of the machines

  • Run on a PC that already has symbols configured

  • Reanalyze assessment data later with updated diagnostic modules or symbols

  • Collect the data on all devices, but analyze only those that meet specific criteria

To collect trace files without running analysis

  1. Select a job or assessment to run.

  2. On the Configure job screen, select Collect traces only.

  3. Run the job.

  4. Trace files for the assessment will be saved to %UserProfile%\Documents\Assessment Results.


Collecting trace files without analysis is not available for all jobs and assessments.

Run analysis on another device

You can load symbols on the PC where you want to analyze trace files. For more information, see Symbol Support.
