Attaching to a Process

Intel® VTune™ Amplifier enables you to focus your performance analysis on a specific process if you are running the hardware event-based sampling data collection.

To specify a process as the analysis target:

  1. Click the Project Properties button on the VTune Amplifier toolbar.

    The Project Properties dialog box opens with the Target tab enabled.

  2. From the left pane, select the Attach to Process target type.

    The Attach to Process configuration pane opens on the right.

  3. Specify the name or PID of a process that is currently running as an analysis target and configure the target properties, if required.
Outcome: VTune Amplifier collects data after attaching to the process.

To detach from the process, click the Stop button on the command toolbar. The process will keep running but the analysis will be stopped.
