,
<process_name2>
:
<profiling_mode>,
...
Arguments
Argument
Description
<process_name>
The name of the process to which the strategy configuration applies. If
<process_name>
is empty, the strategy configuration applies by default to all processes for which a profiling strategy is not specified.
<profiling_mode>
The strategy for profiling the specified process. Possible values are:
Value
Description
trace:trace
Collect data on the process, and its child processes.
notrace:trace
Do not analyze the process, but collect data on its child processes.
notrace:notrace
Ignore the process, and its child processes, while collecting data.
trace:notrace
Analyze the process, but do not collect data on its child processes.
Default
:trace:trace
Analyze both parent and child processes.
Actions Modified
Description
Use the
strategy
action-option to specify which processes to analyze, and which to ignore.
This option is not applicable to hardware event-based analysis types.
This example performs a Hotspots analysis where the strategy configuration limits data collection to the
example
process, and ignores its child processes.

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.
