API Support

Intel® VTune™
supports two kinds of APIs:
  • The instrumentation and tracing technology (ITT) APIs provided by the
    enable your application to generate and control the collection of trace data during its execution.
  • The JIT (Just-In-Time) Profiling API provides functionality to report information about just-in-time generated code that can be used by performance tools. You need to insert JIT Profiling API calls in the code generator to report information before JIT-compiled code goes to execution. This information is collected at runtime and used by tools like
    Intel® VTune™
    to display performance metrics associated with JIT-compiled code.

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.
