Windows Performance Toolkit trace in WPA not showing Network I/O? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I've taken some traces using the Network I/O profile via commandline:

    "WPR.exe -start Network" and "WPR.exe -stop C:\temp\networktrace.etl",

    but when I view it in WPA, "WPA.exe C:\networktrace.etl", I don't see a category in the Graph Explorer for the Network I/O. The categories are the same as when I record the trace without specifying a profile or by specifying -start GeneralProfile.

    Windows Performance Analyzer - Graph Explorer

    I also tried using the GUI tools instead of command-line but I have the same result.

    My OS is Windows 7 SP1 Enterprise x64 but have also tried on x86.

    I've tried the WPT for Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 (all were tried running on Windows 7 SP1 Enterprise x64).

    Any thoughts about why I'm not seeing the Network I/O in the Windows Performance Analyzer graph explorer?

    P.S. I originally posted this in the "Performance >Windows Performance Toolkit" forum but it appears to be un-moderated and full of off-topic posts so I'm not expecting an answer on that post.

  • Hi,

    During my testing, I get same graph as you mentioned above, and I will continue focus on this issue.

    For now, please use Network Monitor to trace network traffic. Sorry for any inconvenience.

  • Hi Allen,

    I just experienced the same problem: recording networking IO, but not showing up in WPA. ( in my case: Win7 VM with Win8.1 WPR.)

    You you resolve the issue? starting a 2nd tool is not really an option.
