Description Alex Rønne Petersen 2016-09-01 16:49:05 UTC
Currently, we always dump a root report when doing a collection, even if we're not taking a heapshot. The data is mostly not useful outside of a heapshot, so there's no point in doing this. Additionally, on profiling sessions with few heapshots but many collections, it can lead to a ton of pointless data in the log file.
