Targets in Virtualized Environments
- Host operating system: system from which the virtual machine is accessed. Supported host systems: Linux*, Windows*
- Virtual machine manager(VMM) orcloud service provider: tool used to access and manage the virtual machine.
- Guest operating system: system accessed via the VMM and profiled usingIntel VTune. Supported guest systems: Linux*, Windows*Profiler
Analysis Type Support
- Analysis types that use this mode (Hotspots and Microarchitecture Exploration) have limited reporting functionality. For example, they may not include accurate results for stacks because this data relies on information provided by precise events. Running analysis types that rely on precise events will return results, but the collected data will be incomplete or distorted. That is, the result may not point to the actual instruction that caused the event, which can be difficult to differentiate from correct events.To enable performance analysis in the hardware event-based sampling mode on a virtual machine, additional configuration steps are required. As soon as you installedVTune, you need to enable the vPMU for your hypervisor:Profiler
