You can install the command line data collection features of the product on a system to reduce disk space footprint and simply collect data. Data collection does not require a license; however, viewing of the data cannot be done unless a license is present. The results of any data collection that is run on the system must then be copied to a system where the regular install was done for analysis, viewing, and reporting.
On the host system, extract the installation package to a writeable directory with the following command:
tar -xzf vtune_amplifier_<version>.tar.gz
Navigate to the directory containing the extracted files.
Copy the CLI_install folder (found at the top level in the extracted product install package) to the remote machine.
Execute ./install.sh script file (this file is located inside the CLI_install folder). No activation is required.
