Issues with PAL Tool


The PAL Tool gets stuck when analyzing large logs even after reducing the time interval of .blg logs to be analyzed. Even used other options of selecting only specific Process, Processor and Memory parameters to reduce the load on the tool. Also additionally running the tool as a high priority process and also made sure that there are no other applications running on the system except the normal system processes but not able to get the analysis results in time. I am running this Tool on a Citrix Virtual Desktop (VDI) with 4 GB RAM which according to me should be sufficient.

Attached is a screen shot of the progress after around 9 hours of the tool execution.

Make sure you are running the 64-bit version. 32-bit versions of PAL cannot handle large counter logs. Also, use 1 thread for each processor. A single threaded PAL will take a long time.
