Manage Result Files

Customize settings for the results you collect with Intel® VTune™ Amplifier.

Configure Result Names

You can change the name of an existing result or configure the template of the result name, determining the format of future analysis results.

To change the name of an existing result file in Microsoft Visual Studio * IDE:

  1. Right-click the result in the Solution Explorer to open the result context menu.

  2. Select Rename and edit the name in the Solution Explorer. Make sure to keep the .amplxe extension.

You can do the same in the standalone version of the product, using the Rename Result context menu option in the Project Navigator.

To change the default result name template:

  1. Open the Result Location pane as follows:

    • Visual Studio IDE: Go to Tools > Options > Intel VTune Amplifier version > Result Location pane.

    • Standalone interface: click the menu button and select Options... > Intel VTune Amplifier version > Result Location pane.

  2. In the Result name template text box, edit the text to configure the naming scheme for new analysis results. By default, r@@@{at} scheme is used, where {at} is an analysis type (for example, hs for Hotspots).


    Do not remove the @@@ part from the template. This is a placeholder enabling multiple runs of the same analysis configuration.

Configure Result Location

For the product version integrated with the Microsoft Visual Studio*, analysis results, by default, are stored in the Visual Studio project default location. For the standalone interface, the analysis result is located in a subdirectory under the project directory. You can view the default location in the Advanced section of the WHAT configuration pane.

To change the result location:

  1. Click the Configure Analysis toolbar button.

    The Configure Analysis window opens.

  2. Choose the required target system and target type in the WHERE and WHAT panes.

  3. Expand the Advanced options section and edit the Store result in (and create link file to) another directory field to specify a directory of your choice.

All subsequent analysis results will be located under the folder you defined in this tab.
