Other Techniques to Enable Data Collection
User-mode sampling for Threading analysis is too slow or creates too much overhead.
Run Threading analysis with Hardware-Event Based Sampling (HEBS) and context switches enabled. This provides the context switch data necessary to understand thread behavior.
Hotspots analysis is unavailable with HEBS and stack collection enabled.
Disable stack collection. To correlate hotspots with stacks, run a separate hotspots analysis with user-mode sampling enabled.
Intel® VTune™hangs or crashes when attaching to a running process.
Intel® VTune™with the application in paused state. Resume data collection when the application gets to an area of interest.
Data collection crashes when using the Instrumentation and Tracing Technology (ITT) API.
