Syntax

-finalize -result-dir
<PATH>
-I -result-dir
<PATH>
Arguments
The
finalize
action must be used with the
result-dir
action-option, which passes in the PATH/name of the result directory.
Default
Result finalization is performed automatically as part of the collection process.
Description
Use the
finalize
action when you need to finalize an un-finalized or improperly finalized result in the directory specified by the
result-dir
action-option. Use GUI tools to change search directories settings, or use the
search-dir
action-option with the
finalize
action to re-finalize the result and update symbol information.
Normally, finalization is performed automatically as part of a
collect
or
import
action. However, you may need to re-finalize a result if:
  • Finalization was suppressed during collection or importation, for example when the
    -finalization-mode=none
    action-option was specified for a
    collect
    or
    collect-with
    action.
  • Re-resolve a result that was not properly finalized because some of the source or symbol files were missing. When viewed in the GUI or reports, the word [Unknown] commonly appears.
Example
In this example, finalization is suppressed when generating a Hotspots analysis result
r001hs
on Linux*.
vtune -collect hotspots -finalization-mode=none -result-dir /tmp/test/r001hs
Finalize the unfinalized Hotspots analysis result
r001hs
created previously.
vtune -finalize -result-dir /tmp/test/r001hs
Re-finalize a Hotspots analysis result
r004hs
, specifying search directories for symbol files.
vtune -finalize -search-dir /home/foo/system_modules -result-dir /tmp/test/r001hs
