target-pid

Attach Survey or Trip Counts & FLOP collection to a running process specified by the process ID.

GUI Equivalent

Project Properties > Analysis Target > [Analysis Type] > Attach to Process > PID

Syntax

--target-pid=<integer>

Arguments

<integer> is a process ID.

Default

No default argument

Actions Modified

collect=survey - with call stacks disabled (default)

collect=tripcounts - with call stacks disabled (default)

Usage

The usage scenario is similar to starting a target application with collection paused, except you can attach to an already running process.

Usage can decrease collection overhead.

Use the command action with the arguments shown below to:

  • detach - the process continues running but analysis data collection stops.

  • stop - kill the process, which also stops analysis data collection.

Example

Attach Survey collection to the running process with the process ID 5.

advisor --collect=survey --target-pid=5 --project-dir=./advi_results -- ./myApplication
