Automated Installation of Intel® VTune™ Amplifier

Note

Refer to the Prerequisites before you begin the installation.

The automated, or silent, installation method allows you to perform a command line installation of Intel® VTune™ Amplifier without answering prompts or making product selections. Use the following steps to set up and execute an automated installation:

  1. Copy the working product license to the standard license file directory, such as /opt/intel/licenses. If you want to use a non-standard license directory, set the INTEL_LICENSE_FILE environment variable to the location of the license file.

  2. Download the full installer package.

  3. Extract the installation package to a writeable directory with the following command:

    tar -xzf vtune_amplifier_<version>.tar.gz

  4. Change directories to the location where you extracted the install files.

  5. Run the following command to create a configuration file that contains the information required by the installer, where <filename> is the name of the new configuration file:

    ./install.sh -d <filename>.cfg

  6. Update the *.cfg file you just created to include the answers to the installer prompts. Save and close the file when you finish making updates.

    The following is an example of the configuration text file:

    ACCEPT_EULA=accept
    CONTINUE_WITH_OPTIONAL_ERROR=yes
    PSET_INSTALL_DIR=/opt/intel
    CONTINUE_WITH_INSTALLDIR_OVERWRITE=yes
    PSET_MODE=install

    AMPLIFIER_MAKE_COMMAND=/usr/bin/make
    AMPLIFIER_INSTALL_BOOT_SCRIPT=yes
    AMPLIFIER_DRIVER_PER_USER_MODE=no
    
  7. Run the following command to begin the installation using your configuration file:

    ./install.sh -s <filename>.cfg
