Create Configuration File


Create a new text file in a text editor and save it with the
.conf
extension. Add the necessary filtering options into the configuration file to make the Intel® Trace Collector trace only the data you want to appear in the resulting trace file. To make Intel Trace Collector read the file, set its full path in the
VT_CONFIG
environment variable. See instructions for each filtering setting below.
Use the following filter settings:
  • STATE defines the functions that will appear in the collected trace file.
    STATE
    filters functions by their full names, for example:
    MPI:MPI_Send
    .
  • ACTIVITY is a shortcut for
    STATE
    . It filters functions by their class names, for example:
    MPI
    .
  • SYMBOL is a shortcut for
    STATE
    . It filters functions by their names, excluding class name, for example:
    MPI_Send
    .
  • PROCESS enables trace collection for a particular number of processes.
  • TIME-WINDOWS collects events within the specified period of time.
  • COMPRESS-RAW-DATA saves raw data in the compressed format.
To get detailed information about filtering process, filtering options, and configuration syntax, refer to the
Intel® Trace Collector User and Reference Guide

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.
