Intel® VTune™ Amplifier Command Line Interface

Intel® VTune™ Amplifier provides a command line interface, the amplxe-cl tool that is especially useful for remote analysis, scripted commands and conducting regular performance regression checks to monitor software performance over time.

The amplxe-cl command line interface provides an extensive set of options that allow you to perform almost every task that might be performed through the GUI. You can initiate analysis via the command line, running it as a background task or on a remote system, then view the result or generate a report at your convenience.

Use the amplxe-cl tool to:

  • Collect performance analysis data for your target application using your specified analysis type and other options.

  • Generate reports from analysis results.

  • Import data files collected remotely.

  • Compare performance before and after optimization.
