Analysis System Options

Specify a system targeted for performance analysis in the Configure Analysis window.

Prerequisites: Make sure to prepare your target system for analysis.

To access the system configuration options:

  1. Open the Configure Analysis window.

  2. Choose a target system in the WHERE pane.

    If you select the Local Host option, no system specific configuration is required. Other systems types need additional configuration.

Remote Linux* Options

When you select the Remote Linux (SSH) system on the WHERE pane, the VTune Amplifier provides the following configuration options:

To Do This

SSH destination field

Specify a username, hostname, and port (if required) for your remote Linux machine as username@hostname[:port].

Make sure an SSH password-less connection is established in advance.

VTune Amplifier installation directory on the remote system field

Specify a path to the VTune Amplifier on the remote system.

  • If VTune Amplifier is not installed on the remote system, the collectors are automatically copied over, installed in the default location (/tmp), and the path is supplied.

  • If VTune Amplifier is already installed in a location other than /tmp, add the location here.

Temporary directory on the remote system field

Specify a path to the /tmp directory on the remote system where performance results are temporarily stored.

Android* Options

When you select the Android Device (ADB) system on the WHERE pane, the VTune Amplifier displays the ADB destination menu and prompts you to specify an Android device for analysis. When the ADB connection is set up, the VTune Amplifier automatically detects available devices and displays them in the menu.

Arbitrary Host Options

When you select the Arbitrary Host (not connected) system on the WHERE pane, the VTune Amplifier prompts you to specify the following data for the system targeted for the analysis but currently not accessible:

Use This

To Do This

Hardware platform field

Select a hardware platform for analysis from the drop-down menu, for example: Intel® processor code named Anniedale.

Operating system field

Specify either Windows* or GNU*/Linux* operating system.

What's Next

In the WHAT pane, select an analysis target for the specified analysis system.

Note

You can launch an analysis only for targets accessible from the current host. For an arbitrary target, you can only generate a command line configuration, save it to the buffer and later launch it on the intended host.
