Re-finalize Results from Command Line

Results are finalized during collection by default, but sometimes finalization is suppressed, or a result that was finalized needs to be re-resolved. Here are some of the possible reasons:
  • The
    no-auto-finalize
    action-option may be used to suppress finalization when performing the
    collect
    action. In this case, the
    finalize
    action must be performed before the result can be viewed or used to generate a report.
  • Finalization may not have completed successfully. If you open the result in the GUI and see question marks or other unexpected characters, the usual cause is that
    vtune
    could not find all the source, binary and symbol files. When re-finalizing the result, use the
    search-dir
    action-option and make sure to specify all search directories.
Raw collector data is used to re-finalize a result. If the
collect
action is performed with the
discard-raw-data
option, so that the raw data is deleted after the initial finalization, the result cannot be re-finalized.

Re-Finalize a Result

To force result re-finalization, run the
finalize
action using this general syntax:
vtune
-finalize -result-dir <
result_path
> -search-dir <
search_path
>
where
<
result_path
>
is the result directory and
<
search_path
>
is the search directory. Use the
-search-dir
option to specify directories for searching symbol and binary files.
Example
This example re-finalizes the
r001hs
result, searching for symbol files in the specified search directory.
vtune -finalize -result-dir r001hs -search-dir /home/import/system_modules
