Setting up Tracing Options

In the Intel® GPA, tracing is disabled by default. To enable tracing, click the / button in the
Graphics Monitor Launcher
To modify the tracing options:
  1. In the
    Graphics Monitor Launcher
    , click the
  2. Go to the
    tab and configure the available tracing options:
    • Set the duration of the application run to be captured in a single trace file. The default trace duration is 5 seconds.
    • Enable the application startup data capturing by enabling the
      Capture Application Startup
      toggle button. Capture starts automatically at application startup and ends when the trace buffer is full.
    • Enable capturing of events to show parallel execution data in the Graphics Trace Analyzer for DirectX 11 based applications.
    • Select user domains to collect data about. The list of user domains is gathered from the analyzed applications defining them with Intel® Tracing Technology API and is updated upon exit from the application.
    • Select predefined Intel® GPA domains to collect data about.
D3DPerf, ID3DUserDefinedAnnotation, ID3D11DeviceContext2 Events, and WinPixEventsRuntime apply to the debug annotation API. It is not recommended to use these domains in the code together and enable these domains simultaneously in the Trace tab.
The default settings represent the common use case.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
