Intel® VTune™ Amplifier generates the following file types:

Note

This document focuses on using the VTune™ Amplifier in the Intel® Parallel Studio XE. You may see minor differences if you installed a different Intel Studio. For more information on product capabilities in your installed Intel Studio, see the studio-specific supplemental documentation in <install-dir>/<Intel_studio>/documentation/.

Analysis Result Files

File Type

Default Location

Result (*.amplxe) produced with preset analysis type

The location of the result files is controlled by the user. The default location for VTune Amplifier XE is:

  • My Amplifier XE Results-[project name]\r@@@{at} directory in the solution directory (Visual Studio* IDE)

  • %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\Amplifier XE\Projects\[project directory]\r@@@{at} directory (Standalone VTune Amplifier GUI)

The default location for the VTune Amplifier for Systems is %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\Amplifier for Systems\Projects\[project directory]\r@@@{at}.

Result (*.amplxe) produced with a custom analysis type

The location of the result files is controlled by the user. The default location for the VTune Amplifier XE is:

  • My Amplifier XE Results-[project name]\r@@@ directory in the solution directory (Visual Studio* IDE)

  • %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\Amplifier XE\Projects\[project directory]\r@@@ directory (Standalone VTune Amplifier GUI)

The default location for the VTune Amplifier for Systems is %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\Amplifier for Systems\Projects\[project directory]\r@@@ .

To open a result from Visual Studio, double-click the node in the Solution Explorer. To open a result from the standalone GUI, select File > Open > Result... and browse to the result file.

Analysis Configuration Files

File Type

File Location

Preset analysis type (for example, hotspots.cfg)

config\analysis_type in the product installation directory.

The default installation path for the VTune Amplifier XE is [Program Files]\Intel\VTune Amplifier XE 2013. For the VTune Amplifier for Systems, the installation path is [Program Files]\Intel\System Studio <version>.<package_num>\VTune Amplifier <version> for Systems.

Custom analysis type (for example, Hardware Event-based Sampling Analysis @@@.cfg, where @@@ is the next available number)

For VTune Amplifier XE: %APPDATA%\intel\Amplifier XE\analysis_type directory

For VTune Amplifier for Systems: %APPDATA%\intel\Amplifier for Systems\analysis_type directory

Project File

File Type

File Location

Project (for example, *.amplxeproj)

The filename is controlled by the system. However, the file location is controlled by the user. The default location for VTune Amplifier XE is :

  • My Amplifier XE Results-[project name] directory in the solution directory (Visual Studio* IDE)

  • Amplifier XE\Projects\[project directory] directory (Standalone Intel VTune Amplifier GUI)

For VTune Amplifier for Systems, the default location is Amplifier for Systems\Projects\[project directory].

Examples

Run the Basic Hotspots analysis and then run the Locks and Waits analysis. If you use the default naming convention and result location, the VTune Amplifier XE names and saves the results in the following manner:

  • Visual Studio* IDE:

    • My Amplifier XE Results-[project name]\r000hs\r000hs.amplxe

    • My Amplifier XE Results-[project name]\r001lw\r000lw.amplxe

  • Standalone VTune Amplifier GUI:

    • %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\Amplifier XE\Projects\[project directory]\r000hs\r000hs.amplxe

    • %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\Amplifier XE\Projects\[project directory]\r001lw\r001lw.amplxe

where

  • hs is the Basic Hotspots analysis type

  • lw is the Locks and Waits analysis type
