tmf file name

Nov 20, 2011 at 9:43 AM

Hi,

We've been using NTrace for a couple of months now and I've noticed that the tmf files keep they name from build to build. Last week I saw that one of those tmfs suddenly got a new name (and kept it since).

Do you have any idea what could have caused that name change? Is there a way to control over the tmf file name?

Thanks,

Hello, Eran!

We currently calculate the TMF guid by generating a hash of the source file's contents; as you have discovered, it can be a bit too eager to generate a new GUID, but it's the safest way to ensure that you don't accidentally try to decode a message against an incorrect TMF. I do have plans to change the hash algorithm to only use the trace messages, but it's a more complicated approach and has been deferred until the next version (which will hopefully use Roslyn).

So if I understand correctly, the bottom line is that I can't change the tmf file name to the name it was before, right?

Correct.
