TIMER

Syntax

TIMER <timer name or LIST>

Variable

VT_TIMER

Default

gettimeofday

Description

Intel Trace Collector can use different sources for time stamps. The availability of the different timers may depend on the actual machine configuration.

To get a full list, link an application with the Intel Trace Collector, then run it with this configuration option set to LIST. By setting the verbosity to 2 or higher, you get output for each node in a cluster. If initialization of a certain timer fails, no error messages are printed in this mode and the timer is specified as unavailable. To see error messages, run the program with TIMER set to the name of the timer that you want to use.
