WHERE: Analysis System

Before running a performance analysis, make sure to prepare your
target system
, which is a system where a profiling session runs.
The target system can be the same as the
host system
, which is a system where you have installed
VTune
Profiler
. If you run an analysis on the same system where you installed
VTune
Profiler
(i.e. target system=host system), the target system is called a
local
system. Target systems other than local ones are called
remote systems
.
When you create a project, the
Configure Analysis
window opens pre-configured to run the entry-point Hotspots analysis on the local host. Click the Browse button in the
WHERE
pane to choose a different analysis type.
Configure Analysis: System
Use these options to decide where you want to run the analysis.
Option
Description
Local Host
Run an analysis on the local host system.
This type of the target system is not available for macOS*.
Remote Linux (SSH)
Run an analysis on a remote regular or embedded Linux* system.
VTune
Profiler
uses the SSH protocol to connect to your remote system.
Android Device (ADB)
Run an analysis on an Android device.
VTune
Profiler
uses the Android Debug Bridge* (adb) to connect to your Android device.
Communication Agent (TCP/IP)
Profile an embedded system running a real-time operating system using the Analysis Communication Agent.
Arbitrary Host (not connected)
Create a command line configuration for a platform NOT accessible from the current host, which is called an .

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors.
