TotalView Online Help : Chapter 1 Root Window : File Menu Commands : File > Manage Sessions
File > Manage Sessions
Use the Sessions Manager dialog to manage all previously-entered debugging sessions. Here, you can edit, duplicate or delete sessions as well as start a session and create new sessions.
Access this dialog either from the Start a Debugging Session window of the Sessions Manager or from File > Manage Sessions if TotalView is already running.

The left pane lists all sessions you have created. When you select a session in the left pane, the right pane displays data about that session. If you have many sessions, you can search by keyword in the search box (). When found, TotalView immediately launches the session.
You can edit, delete and duplicate sessions using the icons in the left toolbar.
Creates a new debugging session, launching the Start a Debugging Session window of the Sessions Manager.
Duplicates a session, naming it "<Session Name> Copy". You can rename and then edit this session.
Edits a session, launching the appropriate window to change the session’s configuration, either New Program, Parallel Program, Running Program or Core File.
Deletes the session.
Editing or Starting New Sessions in a Sessions Window
In addition to editing a session using the Manage Debugging Sessions Window (File > Manage Sessions), you can also edit or even create a new session directly from any sessions window.
The Session Name field on each sessions window contains a dropdown that lists all previously created sessions of that type. For instance, from the Program Session window, you can access any session created in another Program Session:

Similarly, the Attach to a running program dialog displays any previous attach sessions:

If you select a previous session, you can edit any field’s values, even the Session Name to create an entirely new session. Then just click Start Session to launch that new debugging session.
