Pause Collection from Command Line

Intel® VTune™ Amplifier offers different ways to pause the collection process, to resume a paused collection, or to stop a running collect process from the command line.

Start collection in the paused mode, and then automatically resume collection

To start data collection in the paused mode, use the start-paused action option as follows:

amplxe-cl -collect <analysis_type> -start-paused [--] <target>

Resume a paused collection

There are two ways to resume a paused collection.

  • To resume collection automatically after a specified amount of time, use the resume-after option.

    amplxe-cl -collect <analysis_type> -start-paused -resume-after=<value> [--] <target>

    where

    • <analysis_type> is the type of analysis to run

    • <value> is the time of delay in seconds

    • <target> is the target to analyze

  • To resume collection manually, use the command action with the resume argument.

    amplxe-cl -command resume
