I'm using Vtune Performance Analyzer 7.2 for Windows with Vtune RDC 3.0 for Linux. The Linuxdsitribution I used is Cent OS 4.1 which used 2.6.9-11 kernel by default.
I downloaded 2.6.13-1 kernel version andfound VTunehas some problems with this kernel version.Whenever I added L2 cache miss event to the sampling activity, both VTune performance analyzer and rdc hang up after the sampling is started. If just sampling clock ticks and retired instructions, no problem.
However, this problem doesnt exist ifthedefault kernel 2.6.9-11is used.
