macOS* Support

Intel® VTune™ Amplifier is available for use on a macOS* host system. From a macOS host, you can launch a collection on a remote Linux* system or on an Android* system and view the data collection result on the host. Local macOS analysis is not supported.


Detailed information about installing and configuring VTune Amplifier for use on a macOS host is available from the Intel VTune Amplifier Installation Guide - macOS.

  1. Install VTune Amplifier on your macOS host.

  2. Set up a SSH connection to your remote target. You may need to install the appropriate drivers on the target system:

Get Started

  1. Launch the VTune Amplifier GUI from the Launchpad or launch the command line collector by executing the amplxe-vars script and running the amplxe-cl command. By default, VTune Amplifier is installed under the /Applications directory. For more information, see Standalone VTune Amplifier Interface.

  2. Create a new project.

  3. Click the Configure Analysis icon to set up your remote collection.

    1. Select a remote Linux or Android target from the WHERE pane.

    2. Specify the type of collection in the WHAT pane.

      If you select Launch Application, specify the application location on the target system and the application will automatically launch when data collection begins. If you select Attach to Process, select a process from the list of running processes available on the target system.

    3. Select an analysis type from the HOW pane. The Hotspots analysis is a common starting point for application performance analysis.

    4. Click Start to begin collecting data.

      The analysis result is collected remotely and automatically copied to the host when collection completes. An analysis-specific viewpoint opens displaying the results.

  4. View and analyze the results on the host system.
