If you are building the sampling drivers from a fresh kernel source and want to use it for an existing target system, get the original key files and sign the sampling driver with the original key.
You need root access to the target system. Verify the sampling driver is installed correctly. To install the driver that is built with the per-user event-based sampling collection on, use the -pu -per-user option as follows:. Call Stack Pane Context Menus: For user-mode sampling and tracing typesspecify a number in milliseconds between 1 and Sample Count – Hardware Events Window: Summary – Hotspots Window: Guessed Stack Frames Problem: Results may vary depending on the nature of the analysis and the code to which it is applied.
VTune Amplifier can use the driverless Perf-based collection if the following requirements are satisfied:. Intel VTune Amplifier Pane: This provides information on whether the drivers are currently loaded and, if so, what the group ownership and file permissions are on the driver devices.
Tutorials and Samples
Samples are designed only to illustrate the VTune Amplifier features and do not represent best practices for tuning any particular code.
Your system is based on kernel 2. Learn how and when to remove these template messages. Using this access the user can profile the system, an application, or attach to a process.
