Intel® GPA 2013 R4 now supports tracing of Android* applications. This feature may cause some overhead during the analysis with Intel® GPA System Analyzer, which may impact the accuracy of some platform metrics displayed. If you do not intend to use trace analysis for Android* applications and would like to avoid the possible overhead, you have an option to disable this feature once Intel GPA is installed.
Note: On Ubuntu* and OS X* analysis systems, tracing of Android* applications is disabled by default.
To disable tracing on a Windows* OS analysis system:
- Make sure that Intel GPA System Analyzer is not running.
- Locate the
GpaSystemAnalyzer.cfgconfiguration file in the Intel GPA home directory. On Windows* OS, the default location is:
GpaSystemAnalyzer.cfgfile appears after the first launch of the Intel GPA System Analyzer. If you do not see this file, run the tool, close it, and try again.
- Open the configuration file in a text editor.
- In the Android* section of the file, replace ”
install_tracing = true,” with ”
install_tracing = false,”. Make sure to preserve the comma at the end of the line.
Tracing is disabled until you restore the original setting of the “install_tracing” variable.
