General Syntax
The configuration file is a plain ASCII file with the
.conf
extension containing a number of configuration options with their values, one option per line. Options are evaluated in the order they are listed.
Any line starting with the
#
character is ignored. Within a line, a whitespace separates fields, and double quotation marks
"
are used to quote fields containing whitespace. All text is case-insensitive, except for filenames.
Syntax of Parameters
Apart from having numeric or text values, some configuration options may have one of the values below. See description of particular options for their values.
Time Value
Time values are usually specified as a pair of one floating point value and one character that represents the unit:
c
for microseconds,
l
for milliseconds,
s
for seconds,
m
for minutes,
h
for hours,
d
for days and
w
for weeks. These elementary times are added with a plus sign. For instance, the string
1m+30s
refers to one minute and 30 seconds of execution time.
Boolean Value
Boolean values are set to
on
/
true
to turn something on and
off
/
false
to turn it off. Using only the option name without the
on
/
off
argument is the same as
on
.
Number of Bytes
The amount of bytes can be specified with optional suffices
B
/
KB
/
MB
/
GB
, which multiply the amount in front of them by 1, 1024, 1024
2
, 1024
3
, respectively. If no suffix is given the number specifies bytes.
Example
Below is an example of a valid configuration file.
# This line will be ignored LOGFILE-NAME trace.stf CURRENT-DIR "My Directory/tracing" MEM-MAXBLOCKS 8KB OS-COUNTER-DELAY 2s KEEP-RAW-EVENTS ON

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.
