For MPI application analysis on a Linux* cluster, you may enable the Per-user Hardware Event-based Sampling mode when installing the Intel® Cluster Studio XE. This option ensures that during the collection the Intel® VTune™ Amplifier collects data only for the current user. Once enabled by the administrator during the installation, this mode cannot be turned off by a regular user, which is intentional to preclude individual users from observing the performance data over the whole node including activities of other users.
After installation, you can use the respective
-vars.sh files to set up the appropriate environment (PATH, MANPATH) in the current terminal session.
