Analysis System Options

Specify a system targeted for performance analysis in the
Configure Analysis
window.
Prerequisites:
Make sure to prepare your target system for analysis.
To access the system configuration options:
  1. Open the
    Configure Analysis
    window.
  2. Choose a target system in the
    WHERE
    pane.
    If you select the
    Local Host
    option, no system specific configuration is required. Other systems types need additional configuration.

Remote Linux* Options

When you select the
Remote Linux (SSH)
system on the WHERE pane, the
VTune
Profiler
provides the following configuration options:
Use This
To Do This
SSH destination
field
Specify a username, hostname, and port (if required) for your remote Linux machine as
username@hostname[:port]
.
Make sure an SSH password-less connection is established in advance.
VTune
Profiler
installation directory on the remote system
field
Specify a path to the
VTune
Profiler
on the remote system.
  • If
    VTune
    Profiler
    is not installed on the remote system, the collectors are automatically copied over, installed in the default location (
    /tmp
    ), and the path is supplied.
  • If
    VTune
    Profiler
    is already installed in a location other than
    /tmp
    , add the location here.
Temporary directory on the remote system
field
Specify a path to the
/tmp
directory on the remote system where performance results are temporarily stored.

Android* Options

When you select the
Android Device (ADB)
system on the
WHERE
pane, the
VTune
Profiler
displays the
ADB destination
menu and prompts you to specify an Android device for analysis. When the ADB connection is set up, the
VTune
Profiler
automatically detects available devices and displays them in the menu.

Arbitrary Host Options

When you select the
Arbitrary Host (not connected)
system on the
WHERE
pane, the
VTune
Profiler
prompts you to specify the following data for the system targeted for the analysis but currently not accessible:
Use This
To Do This
Hardware platform
field
Select a hardware platform for analysis from the drop-down menu, for example: Intel® processor code named Anniedale.
Operating system
field
Specify either Windows* or GNU*/Linux* operating system.

What's Next

In the
WHAT
pane, select an analysis target for the specified analysis system.
You can launch an analysis only for targets accessible from the current host. For an
arbitrary
target, you can only generate a command line configuration, save it to the buffer and later launch it on the intended host.
