Hot off the presses: "VTune(TM) Performance Analyzer Essentials"

Hey folks,

It occurred to me that the readers of this forum may not know about Intel Press, which writes some pretty amazing books.

They just released a new VTune book which looks pretty impressive in its scope and I am *NOT* saying that just cuz I have a spiffy signed copy of it right here at my desk...

...check it out:

"VTune Performance Analyzer Essentials -- Measurement and Tuning Techniques for Software Developers" by James Reinders.

Installation on nonsupported distro (Gentoo)...

I'm trying to install VTune 3.0 on Gentoo Linux (kernel 2.6.11.11, P4 2.8G HT.)

Downloaded the tar file, untarred, and invoked ./install.
After accepting some license agreements, it stops saying:

ERROR: unable to find command chkconfig
Please add the location to the above commands to your PATH and re-run the script

I know chkconfig on Redhat, but Gentoo doesn't use/have it. Then I tried by editing config.ini;

NONSUPPORTEDINSTALL=Yes

But in vain. Nothing has changed. What can I do?

Thanks in advance!

Base Relocation Problem (New User)

Hello,

I am trying to use VTune for the first time. I am working with IVF 8.1.030 and VTune 7.2 on IA-32.

Step #1
I installed VTune from CD and then performed the upgrade which came out in the first week of June; this amounted to copying a couple files.

Step #2
I walked through the supplied VTune example project, which is based on a simple C project. Works great. Pretty call graphs.

Redhat EL v.4.0 support?

I tried to install Vtune 3.0 on Redhat EL v.4.0.
I could not install it even in custom mode.
Do you have a plan to release a version of Vtune for Redhat EL v.4.0?
Or is there a way to install Vtune on Redhat EL v.4.0?

Thanks.

How to use VTune for PXA270

I have installed VTune 7.2 and I have a Dell AXIMX50 with PXA270 processor. The OS is Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition. I wonder how I can use VTune to measure the performance of my PDA. I tried all three methods (IRDC, TLDC, SRDC)that mentioned in the help document and none of them works. Is Dell AXIM X50 support Vtune?

Thanks for help!

x64 Call Graph

After installing the latest patch, I am able to run counter and sampling on Windows XP x64 w/o any problems.

I am not able to get the call graph activity to work. I am able to intrument the component and when I go to start I get an error box stating that there are no valid exe controllers associated with the collector.
This is a simple C++ console app. I have taken the same project and run it with no problems on my Win32 box.

thanks for the help...
