Automated Installation of
Intel® VTune™
Profiler

Refer to the Prerequisites before you begin the installation.
The automated, or silent, installation method allows you to perform a command line installation of
Intel® VTune™
Profiler
without answering prompts or making product selections. Use the following steps to set up and execute an automated installation:
  1. Download the full installer package.
  2. Extract the installation package to a writeable directory with the following command:
    tar -xzf vtune_profiler_
    <version>
    .tar.gz
  3. Change directories to the location where you extracted the install files. The directory contains a configuration file named
    silent.cfg
    .
  4. Open this file in your text editor of choice and update the values according to your preference.
    You can run the installer in interactive mode to create a new custom configuration file and install
    VTune
    Profiler
    with this command:
    ./install.sh -d
    <new-filename>
    .cfg
    The installer will generate a new
    <new-filename>
    .cfg
    file based on the preferences you have specified in the installer. You can then reuse this file to perform silent customized installations of
    VTune
    Profiler
    on multiple machines.
  5. Run the following command to begin the silent installation:
    ./install.sh -s
    <cfg_filename>
    .cfg --accept_eula
    The installer requires that you accept the End User License Agreement by either:
    • Updating the
      ACCEPT_EULA
      option in the
      silent.cfg
      file
    • Or running
      ./install.sh
      with the
      --accept_eula
      option
The product is installed in the directory specified in the
configuration file
.
