Intel® VTune™ Amplifier XE

Branch Monitoring

Hi, I'm Marcus, I'm doing an academic research on branch monitoring using Branch Trace Store capabilities. Currently, i'm trying to implement a BTS monitor on Windows 7/8. I'm facing some challenges on such development and so I ask for any help.
I made a question on performance forum, but anyone was able to answer me, so I feel free to ask here, since Vtune uses BTS monitoring on Windows.

Assertion failed: thread_manager_impl485: (blocked == tpss_tls_op_err_ok): BUG!

Hi,I use VTUNE Amplifier XE 2015 to get performance data of database Postgres on a remote linux server and use Benchmark Factory 7.0 to send SQL queries to the server, but fail to finish the test.

The following picture is the error VTUNE reports. So, I am wondering that does the statement "blocked == tpss_tls_op_err_ok" belong to VTUNE or BMF? And is VTUNE not compatible with BMF? How can I get over the problem?

Thanks for your help in advance.


"Collection failed" on Advanced/General; workaround but annoying

Hi all! I just installed Update 4 of Vtune Amplifier XE 2015 running on Windows 7.

After the update, "Advanced hotspots" and "General Exploration" stopped working (the advanced ones do not work even if I just select "Hotspots"). The exact error message is "Collection failed. The data cannot be displayed" without further info.

Trying to find a better message error, I copied my program inside the "Intel\VTune Amplifier XE 2015\bin64" folder and ran the program directly from the command line using "amplxe-cl -collect advanced-hotspots my_program.exe". It worked!

directory confusion


My 2016 VTune tries to find the program data files in the system32 directory.  The user program, vector analysis, etc. all use the correct directory as do earlier versions of Vtune.  Needless to say, that Is there some setup parameter that is unique to VTune that would send it off to the wrong directory?


Cannot activate trial version

Dear Support

I'm trying to activate my trial copy of Intel VTune Amplifier for MacOSX and after entering the serial number I've found on download page the Intel Software Manager says that it cannot connect to Intel Software Development Products Registration Center. I've checked my Internet connection and all seems to be fine with it - only Intel Software Manager has trouble connecting.

Thanks  advance for a prompt support. I can't ecaluate VTuneAmplifier without it.

cannot view source code in tune 2015 with remote analysis

Hi friends:

I use vtune 2015 in my windows to analysis some binary file in remote linux.

after running the analysis,when I click some function,it cannot show any source code,it only give me assembly code.

actually in vtune properties tab,I have include the source code directory in source search path.

VTune Amplifier XE hung up a VM when doing advanced-hotspots profiling

I was trying to do an advanced-hotspots profiling on a VM (ESXi 6.0, Guest OS: Linux) using VTune Amplifier XE 2016. VTune 2016 works well on bare-metal machines (the linux distro), but gets the whole the VM hang up. The command line I used is:

amplxe-cl --collect  advanced-hotspots -knob sampling-interval=5 -duration 120


amplxe-cl --collect  advanced-hotspots -knob sampling-interval=5 -duration 120 --target-pid 6268

I heard that VTune collector now support driverless capture using perf in Version 2016. Is there anything wrong with my commands for VM?
