Install Guide

How do I install the drivers required by
Intel® VTune™
Profiler
?

Intel VTune
Profiler
automatically installs the required sampling drivers when the product is installed, assuming the user who installed the product has the appropriate permissions (administrative/root/sudo access). Drivers are installed on a target system when
VTune
Profiler
connects to the target system during analysis configuration (administrative/root/sudo access required via a passwordless SSH connection). If the drivers fail to install, they can be configured manually.
The following topics offer more details about installing the drivers manually.
