Arguments
veryshort
Target takes less than 1 minute to run.
short
Target takes between 1 and 15 minutes to run.
medium
Target takes 15 minutes to 3 hours to run.
long
Target takes more than 3 hours to run.
Default
short
This is appropriate for a target that runs for 1 to 15 minutes.
Actions Modified
Description
If your target runs 15 minutes or longer, or if it runs less than one minute, use the
target-duration
action-option to set a different duration type. The
collect
or
collect-with
action uses this value to adjust the sampling interval, which determines how much data is collected. For longer-running targets, the sampling interval is greater (less frequent) to reduce the amount of collected data. For very short-running targets, the sampling interval is smaller (more frequent). For hardware event-based analysis types, a multiplier applies to the configured Sample After value.
This option is deprecated. Use the option instead.
Example
Perform a Hotspots analysis using a medium sampling interval that is appropriate for targets with a duration of 15 minutes to 3 hours.
vtune -collect hotspots -knob sampling-mode=hw -target-duration-type medium -- MyApp
