Collecting data


Once you've launched or injected into a program, you can stop and start data collection whilst the program is running.


This is a high level switch that controls all data collection, regardless of any other settings such as Performance Collectors.


With data collection off, the target program runs at close to normal speed.


Temporarily turning off collection can be a good idea if you need to take actions to get the program into the right state for validation.


You can also turn data off from the start and only turn it on when you need it.
