application arguments

application arguments

I am using vtl for the first time and haven't been able to pass arguments to the application I am profiling.

If the application is a.out and argument is named arg1 what is the proper syntax?

I have been using:
vtl activity -c sampling -app a.out arg1
this returns a syntax error.

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

Add run at the end

vtl activity -c sampling -app "a.out arg1" run


the forum "VTune Performance Analyzer for Linux applications"
( is more appropriate place for the discussion of Linux issues.

There you can find that you are not alone and not the first user who has problems with passing the args to the application.
