Set Up Project

Before running an analysis with the
Intel® VTune™
Profiler
, you have to create a
project
, which is a container for an analysis target and analysis type configuration and data collection results.
For Microsoft Visual Studio* IDE, the
VTune
Profiler
automatically creates a project for an active startup project, inherits Visual Studio settings and uses the application generated for the selected project as your analysis target. Default project directory is
My
VTune
Results-[project name]
in the solution directory.
For standalone graphical interface, you need to create a project by explicitly specifying its name and path to an analysis target. Default project directory is
%USERPROFILE%\My Documents\Amplifier XE\Projects
on Windows* and
$HOME/intel/
vtune
/projects
on Linux*.
To create a
VTune
Profiler
project for the standalone GUI:
  1. Open the
    Create a Project
    dialog box using any of the following options:
    • Click the menu button and select
      New > Project...
      .
    • Click the
      New Project
      toolbar button.
    • Click the
      New Project...
      hyperlink in the
      Welcome
      page.
    For example, on Windows:
  2. In the
    Create a Project
    dialog box, configure the following settings:
    Use This
    To Do This
    Project Name
    field
    Enter the name of a new project.
    Location
    field and
    Browse
    button
    Choose or create a directory to contain the project.
    Store all your project directories in the same location.
    Create Project
    button
    Create a container
    *.
    vtune
    proj
    file and open the Configure Analysis window.
  3. Click the
    Create Project
    button.
    The
    Configure Analysis
    window opens.
Your default project is pre-configured for the entry-level Hotspots analysis to profile an application of your choice on the local host system. You may either specify your app and click the
Start
button to proceed with the default setup or click the
Browse
button and choose a different system, target, and analysis configuration.
You cannot run a performance analysis or import analysis data without creating a project.
