Intel® VTune™
Profiler
Command Line Interface

Intel® VTune™
Profiler
provides a command line interface called the
vtune
tool. This 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 includes an extensive set of options that you can use to execute almost every task that you handle 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 for these purposes:
  • 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.
  • See the
    VTune
    Profiler
    CLI Cheat Sheet
    quick reference on
    VTune
    Profiler
    command line interface.
  • 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.
  • You cannot create a project from the command line. You must use the GUI for this purpose.
