- The VTune™ analyzer installation may fail if all users, including root, are not allowed to add new users and groups to their systems except through NIS. In this case you should create an NIS user "vtunesag" and an NIS group "vtunesag" with the following parameters:
- $ groupadd -g 28888 vtunesag
- $ useradd -u 28888 -g vtunesag -r -s /bin/false -d /sbin vtunesag
- After that, try to re-install VTune Analyzer.
- The install script hangs occasionally on some Intel® 64 systems after running
install.sh and before the registration phase. If this occurs, first try running the
install.sh script again. If the problem persists, copy the license file you received in the email from the Intel® Registration Center to
<Install Dir>/intel/licenses (default installation directory is /opt/intel), and run the install script again. If the install still hangs and you have an Intel® Premier Support account, submit a technical support issue and refer to this SCR number. If you do not have an Intel Premier Support account, go to
Registration Center and click the "contact technical support" link at the bottom of the page to submit your issue.
The VTune™ Analyzer 9.0 for Linux* can be integrated only with the 32 bit version of Eclipse 3.2.1 on Intel 64 systems. Integration into a 64-bit version of Eclipse is not supported.
- If you are installing the
vtl software on a network filesystem (such as NFS or AFS), you may experience security-related installation failures, depending on how the network file system was set up. In the event of such a failure, you should first install the needed software locally (by default, the
/opt/sag directories, and their subdirectories), and then, after successful completion, put the software on the shared drive. To complete this process, you need to create symbolic links pointing from the local directories to the network directories. [SCR #13717]
- During installation, do not enter an installation path that contains a space; if you do, the installation will fail.
- If you install the Intel® C++ Compiler 8.1 with Eclipse integration, then install the VTune analyzer with Eclipse integration and try to run vtlec, it fails to start. You should set these environment variables prior to launching vtlec:
JVM/bin directory ("
/opt/intel/eclipsepackage/3.1.1/eclipse" by default) and OTHER_ECLIPSE_BIN=Eclipse binary file for VTune analyzer ("
/opt/intel/eclipsepackage/3.1.1/eclipse" by default).
- VTune A
nalyzer 9.0 for Linux*
requires Eclipse* version 3.2.1. It will not work properly with another version of Eclipse.
- Intel compilers version 9.0 and earlier install an earlier version of Eclipse, therefore during the VTune analyzer installation, you must choose to
install a separate version. You should not merge with an existing version of Eclipse* unless it is version 3.2.1.
- If you have installed any other tools that require an earlier version of Eclipse*, you
must install a separate version of Eclipse for the VTune analyzer for Linux.
- The VTune&trade Performance Analyzer does not support the cluster filesystems Linux kernel under SuSE* Linux Enterprise Server* 9.0.
