result tab opens providing the command bar on the right. The command bar is dynamically changing depending on the analysis phase. The following commands are available:
Use This Command Button
To Do This
Start/Resume
Run the analysis, or resume the analysis after a pause. To enable this button:
  • Select a system for analysis on the
    WHERE
    pane
  • Specify an analysis target on the
    WHAT
    pane. If you work in Visual Studio, the project target is automatically associated with the current project.
  • Select an analysis type on the
    HOW
    pane.
Start Paused
Launch the application but run the analysis after some delay. To resume the analysis, click the
Resume
button.
Pause
Pause the data collection any time you need while the application is running. To resume the data collection, click the
Resume
button
Stop
Stop the data collection. This button is only enabled during collection.
Cancel
Cancel the data collection. This button is only enabled during collection.
Mark Timeline
Mark an important moment in the application execution. These marks appear in the Timeline pane. This button is only enabled during collection.
Search Sources/Binaries
Open the search dialog box with the Binary/Symbol Search tab to specify search directories for binary and symbol files in your project and the Source Search tab to specify search directories for source files in your project.

Finalize the result again. This button shows up on the command bar when you try to run the target after changes in the search directories settings.
Import from CSV
Import external performance data into a
VTune
Profiler
result as a
csv
file. You may collect the external performance data with a custom collector out of the
VTune
Profiler
or with your target application used for the
VTune
Profiler
analysis.
Command Line
Generate a command line version of the selected configuration and save it to the buffer for running from a terminal window. You can use this approach to configure and run your remote application analysis.
