Have you ever tried to change the options for an Extended Events session, only to see this.
There are a number of options that are greyed out and can’t be changed. This is because the session is running. There are some options that can be changed, just none on the Advanced tab. This is an easy fix, if you need to change one of these options, simply stop the session and make your change. Don’t forget to restart the session.
Something to keep in mind. If you are using the file target, stopping and restarting the session could delete your oldest file and will create a new session file. This could potentially result in the loss of key data.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and I hope you learned something.
