Fits Your Environment & Workflow

Intel® VTune™ Profiler is designed to support your workflow. It works with popular compilers and languages, integrates with Microsoft Visual Studio*, and can analyze remote systems.

Profile Remote Systems

In many cases, you need to tune a remote server or embedded system. One option is to connect to the remote device and run the collection directly from the user interface. Or if you prefer, collect the remote data using the command line and import the results into your local user interface.

For the best performance, avoid the slow graphics of Virtual Network Computing (VNC)*. Instead, import data from the remote target, and then run the interface locally on Windows*, Linux*, or macOS*.

The user interface lets you select a local or remote target.

Note for Linux: If collectors are not installed on the remote system, Intel VTune Profiler can install them for you.

Collect & Analyze Data Using the Command Line

In addition to the user interface, you can also collect and analyze data using a command line interface. This allows lightweight collection on the target system and automation of regression analysis. Learn the command language by setting up the analysis in the Intel VTune Profiler interface, and then selecting a button to generate the command line.

Tap into Microsoft Visual Studio* Integration

Create and debug code, and tune your application within a single environment. Start an analysis from the toolbar, see the results in Visual Studio, manage results in the solution explorer, and open a source editor from the source view in Intel VTune Profiler.

Intel VTune Profiler is integrated with Microsoft Visual Studio.

Use Any Compiler

As long as it follows industry standards, you can choose from Microsoft* compilers, the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC)*, compilers from Intel, and more. We recommend that you profile a release build (an optimized build) since the performance hotspots can be different for a debug build. Be sure to include symbols so that Intel VTune Profiler can use your familiar function names and map results to your source code.

Product and Performance Information


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. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
