Resolving Symbols for MPI Modules

After data collection, the Intel® VTune™ Amplifier automatically finalizes the data (resolves symbols and converts them to the database). It happens on the same compute node where the command line collection was executing. So, the VTune Amplifier automatically locates binary and symbol files. In cases where you need to point to symbol files stored elsewhere, adjust the search settings using the -search-dir option:

$ mpirun -np 128 amplxe-cl -q -collect hotspots -search-dir /home/foo/syms ./a.out
