Find Dialog Box

Use the Find dialog box to search for a process or a function.

Open this dialog box through the context menu of the Function Profile and in the context menus of the Function Aggregation and the Process Aggregation dialog boxes.

Intel® Trace Analyzer

Use the Search in drop-down menu, to identify the search parameter: Name, All Columns or Dynamic Path.

Check the Case Sensitive box, to make search case-sensitive.

You can optimize the search process selecting the necessary type of expression. The expressions are:



Contains (RegExp)

This entry searches for a phrase that contains a regular expression. A regular expression (RegExp) provides a way to find patterns within text. Regular expressions are built up from expressions, quantifiers and assertions. The simplest form of an expression is a character, like x or 5. An expression can also be a set of characters.

For example, [ABCD] would match an A or a B or a C or a D.

You can get more information on the valid regular expressions at

Exact Match

This entry searches for the exact match of a given character or set of strings.

Wildcards (ITC)

This option defines a search for any function that matches the given pattern. Syntax and semantics are the same as in the regular expressions used in the Intel® Trace Collector.

The wildcard characters in use are *, **, ? and []. They match any number of characters except for the colon :. Pattern matching is not case-sensitive.

The state or function name that the pattern is applied to consists of a class name and the symbol name, separated by a colon. The colon is special and is not matched by the * or ? wildcard. To match it use **.

Examples of valid Wild Card patterns are:

MPI:* (all MPI functions)

**:*send* (any function that contains "send" inside any class)

MPI:*send* (only send functions in MPI)
