Why Performance Analysis?

Without the right data, you’re guessing about how to improve software performance and are unlikely to make the most effective improvements. Intel® VTune™ Profiler collects key profiling data and presents it with a powerful interface that simplifies its analysis and interpretation. Optimize software for:

  • High-performance computing (HPC) in weather forecasting, finite element analysis, and bioinformatics
  • Embedded applications for IoT, transportation, and manufacturing
  • Media software for video transcoding and image processing
  • Cloud applications or Java* services in containers
  • Device drivers
  • Game engines
  • Storage that includes Storage Performance Development Kit (SPDK) and Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) polled software
