Intel® VTune™ Performance Analyzer for Linux* - General Limitations for VTune™ Analyzer 9.0 for Linux*
When you run the VTune Analyzer under Eclipse for the first time, Dynamic Help indexing is performed. During this operation it is not possible to create a local tuning activity on Intel® 64 and a remote tuning activity on IA-32, Intel 64 and Itanium® processor-based systems. As a result of this action you may see an error messages like: "Error: Failed to configure the collector," "Error - Remote operation failed," "Select error before receiving bytes Error no.: (4). Connection to server lost." Wait until the indexing is finished to create the tuning activity as a workaround for this issue.
The VTune analyzer will crash under Eclipse if you run it with BEA JRockit 1.5.0 under Red Hat* Enterprise Linux 4.0 for Intel 64. The problem occurs if the "Modify Activity before running" check box is checked at the end of the wizard. Do one of the following to avoid this situation:
Install the errata kernel for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.0.
Use Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.0 U1
Use the Sun JVM 1.5.0
Eclipse 3.1.1 may hang on an Intel® IA-32 system with BEA* JRockit* 1.5.0 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.0. Install the 32-bit Sun JRE v5.0 and set the path to the JRE in the environment variable OTHER_JVM_BINDIR to Sun's JVM directory as a workaround for this issue.
You may get an error message: "An error has occurred. See error log for more details" if you have uninstalled the analyzer and reinstalled it. Delete the $HOME/.eclipse directory after the uninstall is finished.
When you open an Eclipse workspace created with a previous version of Eclipse, you may get an error message. This is a general Eclipse issue and will be considered by eclipse.org for a future version of Eclipse. The error message is only displayed the first time you open the Eclipse workspace.
The evaluation version of the analyzer contains all of the features of the commercial version, except you do not have the ability to open existing projects, save projects, or the ability to create or unpack a Pack and Go file. You do not need to re-install the product when you convert from the evaluation version to the commercial version. Simply copy your commercial license file into the directory specified by the INTEL_LICENSE_FILE environment variable. The default location is /opt/intel/licenses.
