I installed vtune_amplifier xe 2013 update3 in my HP Proliant DL380 G7 server with Xeon X5680 3.33 (2 sockets, each with 6 core CPU)
with RedHat (2.6.18-164.11.1.el5 #1 SMP) kernel
The installation was completed successfully except it warned that "The drivers for Power analysis require a Linux kernel version of 2.6.32 or higher and will be disabled". Since I don't care about power analysis, as I'm going to turn all CPU to max power/performance model anyway, I ignored that (since my production environment won't use the newer kernel anyway)
However, when I tried run test with "collect stacks" option checked, I got the following:
"Advanced collection of call stacks and thread context switches cannot be enabled. Make sure the driver is installed and you have permissions to access it"
I'm running the 64bit verison of amplxe-gui using root. So, permissioning should not be an issue. I don't know what driver is supposed to be installed and hence I can't check it. Can anyone shred someone on how to check that?
Thank you very much in advance.
