Starting Intel® Trace Analyzer

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
.

From a command prompt

Run this 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
.
For proper functioning of Intel Trace Analyzer, ensure that files do not get modified while they are opened in Intel Trace Analyzer.

Command Line Interface

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.
