I am trying to use VTune Amplifier XE 2011 Update 9 (build 229127) command line tool to profile my application, but it hangs and never seems to capture any data. Profiling using hardware counter based analysis, such as lightweight_hotspots, works perfectly.
The simple failing caseis the following:
amplxe-cl -collect hotspots/bin/ls
When I run this command, it never finishes and I can see using top that ls is running, but amplxe-cl and amplxe-runss are not.
This happens under Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.2, kernel version 2.6.32-220.17.1.el6.x86_64 on a server with 8 Xeon E7-8867 processors.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
