Start cooking your performance analysis with understanding tuning techniques, performance metrics and hardware solutions for collecting statistics. After that you can drill down to particular tuning or configuration recipes provided for the Intel® VTune™ Amplifier.
Top-down Microarchitecture Analysis Method from Intel® VTune™ Amplifier Performance Analysis Cookbook
Use this recipe to know how an application is utilizing available hardware resources and how to make it take advantage of CPU microarchitectures. One way to obtain this knowledge is by using on-chip Performance Monitoring Units (PMUs).
This recipe introduces a flow to analyze CPU utilization of your OpenMP* or hybrid OpenMP-MPI application and identify causes of possible inefficiencies.
This recipe explores metrics that characterize core utilization in terms of packet receiving in DPDK-based applications.
This recipe introduces PCIe Bandwidth metrics used in the Intel® VTune™ Amplifier to explore the PCIe traffic for a packet forwarding DPDK-based workload.
