Intel® VTune™
Profiler
Command Line Interface

Intel® VTune™
Profiler
provides a command line interface, the
vtune
tool that is especially useful for remote analysis, scripted commands and conducting regular performance regression checks to monitor software performance over time.
The
vtune
command line interface provides an extensive set of options that allow you to perform almost every task that might be performed through the GUI. You can initiate analysis via the command line, running it as a background task or on a remote system, then view the result or generate a report at your convenience.
Use the
vtune
tool to:
  • Collect performance analysis data for your target application using your specified analysis type and other options.
  • Generate reports from analysis results.
  • Import data files collected remotely.
  • Compare performance before and after optimization.
  • To access the most current command line documentation for
    vtune
    , enter:
    vtune
    -help
    .
  • When you perform a task through the
    VTune
    Profiler
    GUI, you can use the command generation feature to display the corresponding command and save it for future use.

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.
