search-dir

Specify a search directory for binary and symbol files.

Syntax

-search-dir
DIR
Arguments
DIR
Specify the name of the search directory to add.
Default
Only default search directories are used.
Description
This option specifies search directories for binary and symbol files. It is often used in conjunction with the
finalize
action to re-finalize a result when a symbol file is missed during collection. It is also used if you import results from another system.
During data collection, the result directory is set as the default search directory for the collected result.
If you import results from another system, specify additional search directories for system modules. To show correct results, the
vtune
tool requires the same modules that were used for data collection. To ensure the
Intel® VTune™
Profiler
takes the right module, copy the original system modules to your system.
Alternate Options
source-search-dir
Specify a search directory for source files.
When your source files are in multiple directories, use the
search-dir
option multiple times so that all the necessary directories are searched.
vtune -collect hotspots -knob sampling-mode=hw -search-dir /home/my_system_modules -search-dir /home/other_system_modules -- /home/test/myApplication
This example finalizes the
r001hs
result searching for symbol files in the
C:\Import\system_modules
directory.
vtune -finalize -search-dir C:\Import\system_modules -r C:\Import\r001hs

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.
