Call Stack Mode

Use the
Call Stack Mode
filter bar menu to choose how to show system functions in the stack.
By default, the
Intel® VTune™
Profiler
uses the
User function + 1
mode and filters out all system functions except for those directly called from user functions.
To view system functions (for example, kernel stacks) in the user function stacks, select the
User/system functions
call stack mode :
To locate the call of the kernel function in the assembly code, double click the function in the
Call Stack
pane.
For more accurate kernel stack analysis on Linux targets, use the
CONFIG_FRAME_POINTER=y
option for kernel configuration.

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.
