Get Started Videos

  • Create a Project: This short introductory video explains how to set up a new Intel VTune Amplifier project.
  • Hotspots Analysis: This short video explains the basics of interpreting the analysis.
  • General Exploration: This video explains the key metrics and the basic use for this analysis.
  • Find Application Hotspots on a Linux* System: This video demonstrates how to use the tool to find basic hotspots in a ray tracing application called Tachyon. Learn how to invoke the tool, how to set up the environment so that the shell knows how to find it, how to locate the samples provided, how to build the tachyon project, and how to use Intel VTune Amplifier XE to find hotspots and compare different runs of the application.
  • Interface Secrets: Learn how to increase your productivity by arranging the interface.

About Tutorials

The tutorials use sample code to explain how to:

  • Identify where your application is spending time, detect the most time-consuming program units, and how they were called.
  • Identify locks and waits that prevent parallelization.
  • Identify hardware-related issues in your application such as data sharing, cache misses, branch misprediction, and others.
  • Configure and run the Advanced Hotspots analysis on a remote embedded Linux system, and view the collected data on the Linux* or Microsoft Windows* host.
  • Analyze OpenMP* and MPI Applications on Linux, using the Application Performance Snapshot tool, the Intel® Trace Analyzer and Collector, Intel VTune Amplifier high-performance computing (HPC) Characterization Analysis, and more.
