Standalone VTune Amplifier Graphical Interface

By default, the Intel® VTune™ Amplifier opens a Welcome page that provides hints on your next steps, links to additional resources and product news:

Use the following shortcut panes at the bottom of the Welcome page:

Review the latest Featured Content that typically includes performance tuning scenarios and tuning methodology articles. The list of featured articles is populated dynamically and available online.

Click the What's New link to view a list of features provided with the current version of the VTune Amplifier.

To start with the VTune Amplifier, you need to have a project that specifies a target to analyze. If a project is open, its name shows up on the Welcome page as the Current project.

To configure and run a new configuration for the current project, click the Configure Analysis... link. To configure target and analysis settings for a currently opened project, click Configure Analysis link as well.

To create a new project, click the New Project... link.

For quick and easy access to an existing project used recently, click the required project name in the Recent Projects list. Hover over a project name in the list to see the full path to the project file.

Click Open Project... to open an existing project (*.amplxeproj).

To open a recently collected result, click the required item in the Recent Results list. By default, each result name has an identifier of its analysis type (last two letters in the result name); for example, tr stands for Threading analysis. Hover over a result name in the list to see the full path to the result file.

Click Open Result... to open a result file (*.amplxe).

When a VTune Amplifier project is created, you may explore basic product mechanisms that help you analyze data:

Toolbar. Use the toolbar to configure and control data collection. Click the button to open/close the Project Navigator. Use the Configure Analysis toolbar button to access an analysis configuration.

Menu. Use the VTune Amplifier menu to control data collection, define and view project properties, and set various options:

Project Navigator. Use to manage your project and collected analysis results.

Analysis type and viewpoint. View the correlation of the analysis result and a viewpoint used to display the collected data. Viewpoint is a pre-set configuration of windows/panes for an analysis result. For most of analysis types, you can click the down arrow to switch among several viewpoints and focus on particular performance metrics.

Analysis Windows. Switch between window tabs to explore the analysis type configuration options and collected data provided by the selected viewpoint.

Grouping. Use the Grouping drop-down menu to choose a granularity level for grouping data in the grid. Available groupings are based on the hierarchy of the program units and let you analyze the collected data from different perspectives; for example, if you are developing specific modules in an application and interested only in their performance, you may select the Module/Function/Call Stack grouping and view aggregated data per module functions.

Filtering. VTune Amplifier provides two basic options for filtering the collected data: per object and per time regions. Use the filter toolbar to filter out the result data according to the selected object categories: Module, Process, Thread, and so on. To filter the data by a time region, select this region on the timeline, right-click and choose Filter In by Selection content menu option.

This could be useful, for example, to get region specific data in the context summary for the HPC Performance Characterization or GPU Compute/Media Hotspots analyses.
