Sun Studio 12: Performance Analyzer

-L size

Limit the amount of profiling data recorded to size megabytes. The limit applies to the sum of the amounts of clock-based profiling data, hardware counter overflow profiling data, and synchronization wait tracing data, but not to sample points. The limit is only approximate, and can be exceeded.

When the limit is reached, no more profiling data is recorded but the experiment remains open until the target process terminates. If periodic sampling is enabled, sample points continue to be written.

The default limit on the amount of data recorded is 2000 Mbytes. This limit was chosen because the Performance Analyzer cannot process experiments that contain more than 2 Gbytes of data. To remove the limit, set size to unlimited or none.
