Window: Collection Log

The
Collection Log
window opens when you click the
Start
button and run the analysis.
Intel® VTune™
Profiler
uses two types of data collectors: user-mode sampling and tracing collector and hardware event-based sampling collector. During data collection and finalization the
VTune
Profiler
provides status messages in the
Collection Log
window. If required, you can click the
Clear Log
button to delete the log.
You may enable detailed collection messages by using the
Display verbose messages in the Collection Log window
option, available from the
Options… > Intel VTune
Profiler
version
> General
pane.
If analysis completes successfully, the
VTune
Profiler
does the following:
  • Creates an analysis result and saves it in the project directory. The project directory is specified in the
    Configure Analysis
    window >
    WHAT
    pane
    available via the
    Configure Analysis
    toolbar button.
  • (for
    VTune
    Profiler
    integrated into Visual Studio) Displays the analysis result in the Solution Explorer. The naming scheme of the analysis result is specified in the
    Tools > Options... > Intel VTune
    Profiler
    version
    > Result Location
    pane.
  • Opens the result tab with the default viewpoint.

Application Output

If you configured the General pane options to display the application output in the product output window, the
VTune
Profiler
redirects the output to the
Application Output
pane.
