VTune Amplifier supports command line analysis of applications running on a remote Linux or Android system (target) using the following product components installed:

  • Host: VTune Amplifier command line interface (amplxe-cl)

  • Remote embedded Linux or Android target: target package with data collectors

To enable remote analysis, make sure the path to the VTune Amplifier installed on the remote target system is specified. If you use the default installation directory, the VTune Amplifier on the host system automatically detects the location of the remote components. Otherwise, use the -target-install-dir to specify the correct path.


This command runs Hotspots analysis with stacks for a Linux application and specifies a path to the remote version of the VTune Amplifier installed to a non-default location:

host>./amplxe-cl --target-system=ssh:user1@ -target-install-dir=/home/vtune_amplifier_2019.123456 –collect hotspots -knob sampling-mode=hw -knob enable-stack-collection=true -- /home/samples/matrix
