Let's say I am interested in counting the overall number of L1 I- and D-cache misses experienced by my application, and let's assume that my platform is a "standard" PIII (733MHz variety).
Can I use VTune to do this accurately? For example, would setting the sampling rate longer than my program's execution do the trick?
Thanks for your help,
