Use the Binary/Symbol Search dialog box to configure the search directories for binary and symbol files on the host, which is required to finalization and accurate source analysis. For example, specify non-standard directories for the supporting files needed to execute the target executable.

For remote data collection, if the symbol files are not available on the host, make sure to either copy them to the host or mount the directory with the source files and add it to the search paths. Binary files are copied from the target system to the host by default after data collection.

To access this dialog box:

  1. On the Intel® VTune™ Amplifier toolbar, click the Configure Analysis button.
