The NCover Snapshot feature is useful for monitoring the progress of long-running executions.
From the Desktop Projects view, click the snapshot button beside Project settings while coverage is being gathered.
Your execution doesn't stop, but while it continues normally, a snapshot view of the current execution data is created.
While the snapshot is being assembled, the "Last Run" status for the project will change from the most recent timestamp to "Loading..."
Once the snapshot is complete, drill down to the Executions view to see the results. Snapshots are labeled as such in the execution caption, and their Build ID corresponds to the execution that is still pending.
Snapshots are cumulative. If you take several over the course of coverage collection, the most recent snapshot will contain all the data of its predecessors, plus whatever new data has been aggregated since the last snap.
