We are consistently seeing an assertion error when running VTune XE for Linux HotSpot analysis on Sandy Bridge based processors.
VTune versions: vtune_amplifier_xe_2011u8, vtune_amplifier_xe_2013u3
Linux version: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.2 (Santiago)
Processor: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2670 0 @ 2.60GHz
Assertion '(4 ) + (2 +2 +4 +4 + cpu_no*(2 +leaf_no*(2*4 +4*4 ))) == pos' failed. Please contact the developers.
Assertion '(4 ) + (2 +2 +4 +4 + cpu_no*(2 +leaf_no*(2*4 +4*4 ))) == pos' failed. For more information, please visit the technical support forum at https://software.intel.com/sites/support/
We do not see this with Red Hat 5 / VTune 2011 / Nehalem processors. Can someone shed some light on the error, if it's origin is VTune or the Sandy Bridge architecture, it's severity, and if there is a work-around or fix in the works for it?
