VTune Amplifier Filenames and Locations

Intel® VTune™ Amplifier generates the following file types:

Note

The default installation path for the VTune Amplifier is [Program Files]\IntelSWTools\VTune Amplifier <version> on Windows* and /opt/intel/vtune_amplifier_version on Linux*. For the Intel System Studio, the default <install_dir> of the VTune Amplifier is [Program Files]\IntelSWTools\system_studio_<version>\VTune Amplifier on Windows* and one of the following on Linux:

  • For super-users: /opt/intel/system_studio_version/vtune_amplifier
  • For ordinary users: $HOME/intel/system_studio_version/vtune_amplifier

Analysis Result Files

File Type

Default Location

Result (*.amplxe) produced with preset analysis type

The location of the result files is controlled by the user. The default location for VTune Amplifier is:

  • On Linux: /root/intel/amplxe/projects/[project directory]/r@@@{at}

  • On Windows:

    • VTune Amplifier Results\[project name]\r@@@{at} directory in the solution directory (Visual Studio* IDE)

    • %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\Amplifier XE\Projects\[project directory]\r@@@{at} directory (Standalone VTune Amplifier GUI)

Result (*.amplxe) produced with a custom analysis type

The location of the result files is controlled by the user. The default location for the VTune Amplifier is:

  • On Linux: /root/intel/amplxe/projects/[project directory]/r@@@

  • On Windows:

    • VTune Amplifier Results\[project name]\r@@@ directory in the solution directory (Visual Studio* IDE)

    • %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\Amplifier XE\Projects\[project directory]\r@@@ directory (Standalone VTune Amplifier GUI)

To open a result from the standalone GUI, select Open > Result... from the menu and browse to the result file. To open a result from Visual Studio, double-click the node in the Solution Explorer.

Analysis Configuration Files

File Type

File Location

Preset analysis type (for example, hotspots.cfg)

config/analysis_type in the product installation directory.

Custom analysis type (for example, Hardware Event-based Sampling Analysis @@@.cfg, where @@@ is the next available number)

Windows: %APPDATA%\intel\Amplifier XE\analysis_type

Linux: /root/.intel/amplxe/analysis_type

Project File

File Type

File Location

Project (for example, *.amplxeproj)

The filename is controlled by the system. However, the file location is controlled by the user. The default location is:

  • On Linux: /root/intel/amplxe/projects/[project directory]
  • On Windows:

    • VTune Amplifier Results\[project name] directory in the solution directory (Visual Studio* IDE)

    • Amplifier XE\Projects\[project directory] directory (Standalone Intel VTune Amplifier GUI)

Examples

Run the Hotspots analysis and then run the Threading analysis. If you use the default naming convention and result location, the VTune Amplifier names and saves the results in the following manner:

  • Standalone GUI Linux:

    • /root/intel/amplxe/projects/r000hs/r000hs.amplxe

    • /root/intel/amplxe/projects/r001tr/r001tr.amplxe

  • Standalone GUI Windows:

    • %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\Amplifier XE\Projects\[project directory]\r000hs\r000hs.amplxe

    • %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\Amplifier XE\Projects\[project directory]\r001tr\r001tr.amplxe

  • Visual Studio IDE:

    • VTune Amplifier Results\[project name]\r000hs\r000hs.amplxe

    • VTune Amplifier Results\[project name]\r001tr\r000tr.amplxe

where

  • hs is the Hotspots analysis type

  • tr is the Threading analysis type
