Constants

 
PSS_CAPTURE_NONE
Value: 0x00000000
Capture nothing.
PSS_CAPTURE_VA_CLONE
Value: 0x00000001
Capture a snapshot of all cloneable pages in the process. The clone includes all MEM_PRIVATE regions, as well as all sections (MEM_MAPPED and MEM_IMAGE) that are shareable. All Win32 sections created via CreateFileMapping are shareable.
PSS_CAPTURE_RESERVED_00000002
Value: 0x00000002
(Do not use.)
PSS_CAPTURE_HANDLES
Value: 0x00000004
Capture the handle table (handle values only).
PSS_CAPTURE_HANDLE_NAME_INFORMATION
Value: 0x00000008
Capture name information for each handle.
PSS_CAPTURE_HANDLE_BASIC_INFORMATION
Value: 0x00000010
Capture basic handle information such as HandleCount, PointerCount, GrantedAccess, etc.
PSS_CAPTURE_HANDLE_TYPE_SPECIFIC_INFORMATION
Value: 0x00000020
Capture type-specific information for supported object types: Process, Thread, Event, Mutant, Section.
PSS_CAPTURE_HANDLE_TRACE
Value: 0x00000040
Capture the handle tracing table.
PSS_CAPTURE_THREADS
Value: 0x00000080
Capture thread information (IDs only).
PSS_CAPTURE_THREAD_CONTEXT
Value: 0x00000100
Capture the context for each thread.
PSS_CAPTURE_THREAD_CONTEXT_EXTENDED
Value: 0x00000200
Capture extended context for each thread (e.g. CONTEXT_XSTATE).
PSS_CAPTURE_RESERVED_00000400
Value: 0x00000400
(Do not use.)
PSS_CAPTURE_VA_SPACE
Value: 0x00000800
Capture a snapshot of the virtual address space. The VA space is captured as an array of MEMORY_BASIC_INFORMATION structures. This flag does not capture the contents of the pages.
PSS_CAPTURE_VA_SPACE_SECTION_INFORMATION
Value: 0x00001000
For MEM_IMAGE and MEM_MAPPED regions, dumps the path to the file backing the sections (identical to what GetMappedFileName returns). For MEM_IMAGE regions, also dumps:



  • IMAGE_NT_HEADERS.FileHeader.TimeDateStamp



  • IMAGE_NT_HEADERS.OptionalHeader.SizeOfImage



  • IMAGE_NT_HEADERS.OptionalHeader.ImageBase



  • IMAGE_NT_HEADERS.OptionalHeader.CheckSum



The PROCESS_VM_READ access right is required on the process handle.

Warning  This option is only valid when PSS_CAPTURE_VA_SPACE is specified.

 
PSS_CAPTURE_IPT_TRACE
Value: 0x00002000
PSS_CREATE_BREAKAWAY_OPTIONAL
Value: 0x04000000
The breakaway is optional. If the clone process fails to create as a breakaway, then it is created still inside the job. This flag must be specified in combination with either PSS_CREATE_FORCE_BREAKAWAY and/or PSS_CREATE_BREAKAWAY.
PSS_CREATE_BREAKAWAY
Value: 0x08000000
The clone is broken away from the parent process' job. This is equivalent to CreateProcess flag CREATE_BREAKAWAY_FROM_JOB.
PSS_CREATE_FORCE_BREAKAWAY
Value: 0x10000000
The clone is forcefully broken away the parent process's job. This is only allowed for Tcb-privileged callers.
PSS_CREATE_USE_VM_ALLOCATIONS
Value: 0x20000000
The facility should not use the process heap for any persistent or transient allocations. The use of the heap may be undesirable in certain contexts such as creation of snapshots in the exception reporting path (where the heap may be corrupted).
PSS_CREATE_MEASURE_PERFORMANCE
Value: 0x40000000
Measure performance of the facility. Performance counters can be retrieved via PssQuerySnapshot with the PSS_QUERY_PERFORMANCE_COUNTERS information class of PSS_QUERY_INFORMATION_CLASS.
PSS_CREATE_RELEASE_SECTION
Value: 0x80000000
The virtual address (VA) clone process does not hold a reference to the underlying image. This will cause functions such as QueryFullProcessImageName to fail on the VA clone process.

Important  

This flag has no effect unless PSS_CAPTURE_VA_CLONE is specified.


 

Remarks

If both PSS_CREATE_FORCE_BREAKAWAY and PSS_CREATE_BREAKAWAY are specified, then PSS_CREATE_FORCE_BREAKAWAY takes precedence.
