Configuring Sampling Interval
For a user-mode sampling and tracing custom collection, configure the amount of wall-clock time the Intel® VTune™ Amplifier waits before collecting each sample (sampling interval).
Analyzing Idle/Active Power Consumption
Configure the Intel® VTune™ Amplifier to collect special metrics and analyze idle and active power consumption of your system and the impact your software has on the system behavior.
Collecting Call Count Data
Enable the stack collection for the hardware event-based sampling analysis and configure the Intel® VTune™ Amplifier to statistically approximate the number of calls to sampled functions.
If required, edit a list of hardware events monitored by the Intel® VTune™ Amplifier for your processor by modifying an existing or creating a new hardware event-based sampling analysis configuration.
Configuring GPU Analysis
For application using Processor Graphics, configure the Intel® VTune™ Amplifier provides to monitor, analyze, and correlate the application performance on both the CPU and GPU.
Configuring an Analysis Type for Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor
On Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors (code name: Knights Corner), configure the Intel® VTune™ Amplifier either to run the predefined Hotspots, General Exploration, or Memory Bandwidth analysis types, or create a custom analysis type with an arbitrary set of hardware events.
