TIMER

Syntax
TIMER <timer name or LIST>
Variable
VT_TIMER
Default
gettimeofday
Description
Intel Trace Collector can use different sources for time stamps. The availability of the different timers may depend on the actual machine configuration.
To get a full list, link an application with the Intel Trace Collector, then run it with this configuration option set to
LIST
. By setting the verbosity to
2
or higher, you get output for each node in a cluster. If initialization of a certain timer fails, no error messages are printed in this mode and the timer is specified as unavailable. To see error messages, run the program with
TIMER
set to the name of the timer that you want to use.
