Command Line Interface

Starting on Linux* OS
Invoke Intel® Trace Analyzer through the command line:
$ traceanalyzer &
Optionally, specify one or more trace files as arguments. For example:
$ traceanalyzer ./poisson_icomm.single.stf &
The example above opens the trace file
poisson_icomm.single.stf
in Intel Trace Analyzer. To open trace files in the Intel Trace Analyzer without restarting it, select
File>Open
.
Starting on Windows* OS
Use one of the following options to invoke the Intel Trace Analyzer:
  • Double-click on a trace file.
  • On Windows* 8 and newer, go to
    Start > Apps > Intel Parallel Studio XE
    version
    > Intel Trace Analyzer
    version
    .
  • On a command prompt, run the command:
    > traceanalyzer
  • Optionally, specify one or more trace files as arguments.
To open trace files in the Intel Trace Analyzer without restarting it, select
File > Open
.
Note
For proper functioning of Intel Trace Analyzer, ensure that files do not get modified while they are opened in Intel Trace Analyzer.
Intel Trace Analyzer provides a command line interface (CLI) in all environments.
Use the CLI to:
  • Pre-calculate trace caches for new trace files from batch files without invoking the graphical user interface. Use it for very big trace files.
  • Automate profiling data production for several trace files without further interaction.
For every opened trace file, Intel Trace Analyzer creates a trace cache. It is stored in the same directory as the trace file and has the same file name adding the
.cache
suffix. If Intel Trace Analyzer cannot create a cache file in the default directory, it can create it in the system temporary directory.

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.
