vtss.sys blue screens after approximately a week of uptime

What it says in the topic. This appears to be essentially 100% reproducible, but it took me a while to figure out what's going on. It does not occur when the VTSS service is stopped (e.g. "net stop vtss"). 

I don't have a recent minidump (that last crash didn't produce one for some reason). Running WinDbg "!analyze -v" on an older minidump reports an "EXCEPTION_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0xc0000094 - {EXCEPTION}  Integer division by zero" in vtss.sys.

Crashes with version 2016 update1

Since installing Intel VTune Amplifier XE 2016 update1, I crash regularly when running the tool from within Visual Studio 2013.  I am running on WIndows 10.  I start the profiler, let it run for a while, and then stop it (doesn't matter whether I press the "stop" button or exit the program normally).  The event viewer logs have:

Cache Miss Ratio for L1,L2,L3. Please Help?


I need help to find the miss rate equation using the attached events. I found many equations but I don't know which one is correct. Also in some equations I didn't find the events in my results. 

So please whats the equations that I used to find the miss rate using the events in my attached results.

My Processor is E5-2640. Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7.

See the attached images for the results.

Installation Issue on Windows 8.1


I've used vtune_amplifier_xe_2016_setup.exe on Windows 7, but today when I tried the same on Windows 8.1, right after extraction, the installer seemed to abort.  Not sure if some setting or feature is missing on Windows 8.1.  Log file found in AppData\local\temp folder is included below.  Any help/BKMs are appreciated.  Thanks!
