Supported Operating Systems
  • Red Hat* Enterprise Linux 6 and 7
  • CentOS* versions equivalent to Red Hat* Enterprise Linux* versions listed above
  • SUSE* Linux* Enterprise Server (SLES) 11 and 12
  • Fedora* 25, 26 and 27
  • Ubuntu* 14.04, 16.04, 17.04 and 17.10
  • Debian* 8.0 and 9.0
32-bit graphical user interface support is removed. A 64-bit operating system host is required to use the VTune Amplifier graphical user interface to analyze collected profile data. Command line profiling and reporting is supported on a 32-bit operating system host. Use the command line installer instructions to install on a 32-bit operating system.
On Linux, the following packages must be installed for the VTune Amplifier standalone GUI:
  • GTK+ (2.10 or higher, 2.18 or higher is recommended)
  • Pango (1.14 or higher)
  • X.Org (1.0 or higher, 1.7 or higher is recommended)
Target Requirements for Embedded Linux
The target platform should be based on one of the following environments:
  • Yocto Project* 1.7, 1.8, 2.0 2.2 and 2.3 based environment
  • Wind River* Linux* 6, 7, 8 and 9-based environment
Supported Compilers
  • Intel® C/C++ Compiler 11 and higher
  • Intel® Fortran Compiler 11 and higher
  • GNU C/C++ Compiler 3.4.6 and higher
Supported Kernels
  • Hardware event-based sampling analysis with stacks requirements:
    • Linux kernel version 2.6.32 or above
  • Driverless hardware event-based sampling analysis requirements:
    • Linux kernel version 2.6.32 or above, exporting CPU PMU programming details over
      file system
Application Coding Requirements
Supported programming languages:
  • Fortran
  • C
  • C++
  • Java*
  • OpenCL*
  • Python
  • Go
Concurrency and Locks and Waits analysis types interpret the use of constructs from the following threading methodologies:
  • Intel® Threading Building Blocks
  • Posix* Threads on Linux*
  • OpenMP*
  • Intel's C/C++ Parallel Language Extensions
VTune Amplifier supports analysis of OpenMP* applications built with Intel® Fortran Compiler Professional Edition version 11.0 or higher, Intel® C++ Compiler Professional Edition version 11.0 or higher, or GNU* C/C++ Compiler 4.2 or higher (Linux).

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.
