Intel VTune Amplifier XE 2011 and Destroy Castle Profiling

Intel VTune Amplifier XE 2011 and Destroy Castle Profiling


Do we know the status of the Known/Limitation issue below?

Thread stack size limitation (200152816)

Intel VTune Amplifier XE 2011 Release Notes


o The VTune Amplifier XE may crash with the following error message: Error: failed to create a sampling thread: not enough storage is available to process this command. This happens when the profiled application has big reserved and committed thread stack size (/STACK:reserve[,commit] command line switch of link.exe). The suggested workaround is reducing the reserved/committed thread stack size to profile the target.

We are trying to analyze Destry Castle demo either serial or parallel versions either using Windows Threads or Intel TBB and we are crashing every time. It fails to run the application and we get the following error:

Error: Cannot create sampling thread

Target process's profiling finished but the following processes are still being profiled:


001652 003648 RESUME Main_Debug.exe

You may stop collection manually. The processes listed above will be terminated.

Thanks for your help.
