About Running Analysis

Intel® VTune™ Amplifier provides the following options to run performance analysis:

  • Run analysis using the graphical interface

  • Run analysis using the command line interface

  • Run analysis remotely using the command line interface


You may program hot keys to start/stop a particular analysis. For more details, see http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/using-hot-keys-in-vtune-amplifier-xe/.

When you choose an analysis type and run analysis, the Intel® VTune™ Amplifier :

  • Executes the target and collects performance data.

  • Finalizes the analysis result.

  • Collects result data in a *.amplxe file.
