Intel Parallel Studio VTune Profiler

The Intel VTune Amplifier has now been renamed to Intel Parallel Studio VTune Profiler. It is an intel bottleneck detector which analyzes and optimizes the software performance of a 32 and 64-bit x86 machine. It is a tool used to profile key data from serial and multithreaded applications that are executed on different platforms such as the CPU. The applications can be run on the VTune Profiler standalone version or the version installed with Intel Parallel Studio which then presents the analysis in the Intel VTune Profiler.

Intel Parallel Studio Profiler can be installed as the standalone version, through the web server interface and as the integrated version in Microsoft Visual Studio or with the Eclipse IDE.

Standalone VTune Profiler Graphical Interface

In this version click to create a new project. Then the features you will see will help to configure the analysis.

  1. Project Navigator - to manage your project and collect analysis results.
  2. Menu and Toolbar - configure and control performance analysis, define and view project properties.
  3. Analysis type and viewpoint - allows to view the correlation of the analysis result and a viewpoint used to display the collected data. Viewpoint is a pre-set configuration of windows/panes for an analysis result.
  4. Analysis Windows - these are different window tabs that show the analysis type configuration options and collected data provided by the selected viewpoint.
  5. Grouping - this is a drop-down menu to choose a granularity level for grouping data in the grid
  6. Filtering - two basic options for filtering the collected data that include per object and per time regions.
