Refresh processing

Refresh processing is what occurs when a fault entry is being rewritten due to user information, having been updated during interactive reanalysis. The user information which might cause this refresh processing is any of the following:
When user information has changed, then a display like the example shown in Figure 1 is presented upon exiting the interactive report, which permits the cancellation of the refresh, or the suppression of the minidump.

  A minidump does not currently exist for this fault entry, but one will be   
  saved unless suppressed using the option below.

The option to suppress the minidump is only included if the fault does not yet include a minidump and the current minidump size exceeds the MaxMinidumpPages option limit in effect.

If instead the reanalysis is performed in batch, then a user exit can be used to perform the equivalent function. This exit is effectively an End Processing user exit, and is specified using the RefreshExits option (see RefreshExits).
