Microsoft Visual Studio* Integration


Microsoft Visual Studio* IDE integration is available only for the Intel® VTune™ Amplifier XE.

The process of debugging code and tuning your application is simplified if both your application and tuning tools are available from the same interface. Intel® VTune™ Amplifier integrates into Microsoft Visual Studio* environment and enables you to create and tune your application within a single environment.

If you select to integrate with Visual Studio when installing the VTune Amplifier, the Visual Studio user interface is extended to incorporate VTune Amplifier menus and a toolbar.

Callout A

Use the VTune Amplifier toolbar to configure and control result collection.

Callout B

VTune Amplifier results *.amplxe show up in the Solution Explorer under the My Amplifier Results folder. To configure and control result collection, right-click the project in the Solution Explorer and select the Intel VTune Amplifier menu from the context menu. To manage previously collected results, right-click the result (for example,r000ge.amplxe) and select the command from the context menu.

Click the (change) link to select a viewpoint, a preset configuration of windows/panes for an analysis result. For each analysis type, you can switch among several viewpoints to focus on particular performance metrics.

Callout D

Click buttons on navigation toolbars to change window views and toggle window panes on and off.

Callout E

In the Timeline pane, analyze thread activity and transitions presented for user-mode sampling and tracing analysis results (Hotspots, Concurrency, and Locks and Waits) or analyze the distribution of application performance per hardware metric over time for event-based sampling analysis results (for example, General Exploration).

Callout F

Use the Call Stack pane to view call paths for a function selected in the grid.

Callout G

Use the filter toolbar to filter out the result data according to the selected categories.

In Microsoft Visual Studio* 2008, use the Dynamic Help window to access help topics related to the current VTune Amplifier window/pane.
