Intel« VTune? analyzers help locate and remove software performance bottlenecks by collecting, analyzing, and displaying performance data from the system down to the source level.

Key features include sampling capability, call graph capability, counter monitor, and an enhanced Intel« Tuning Assistant. Intel VTune Performance Analyzer provides both a graphical and a command line interface on Windows platforms; optional Visual Studio .NET integration; and remote support for IA-32 and Intel« Itanium« processor-based Linux applications as well as sampling on Intel« PXA250, PXA255, and PXA26x processor-based applications.

Features and Benefits

  • Sampling provides developers with the most accurate representation of their software's actual performance, with negligible overhead
  • Call graph profiling provides developers with a pictorial view of program flow to quickly identify critical functions and call sequences
  • Counter monitor allows developers to track system activity during runtime which helps identify system level performance issues
  • Remote agents for Linux provide the ability to collect performance data on a remote Linux system while maintaining the Windows GUI ease of use for data analysis and interpretation
  • Intel« Tuning Assistant automatically suggests code improvements based on an extensive knowledge base, increasing productivity
  • Visual Studio .NET integration provides the ability to use Intel VTune Performance Analyzer within their Visual Studio .NET IDE, improving ease of use and productivity
  • Windows command line capability provides power and flexibility to collect sampling data independent of the VTune analyzer GUI, allowing them to automate sampling
  • Trial version is available

What?s New in the Intel VTune Performance Analyzer 7.1

Intel VTune Performance Analyzer offers a sampling over time view, which allows users to understand how software performance characteristics change over time. Calibration of events in event-based sampling can now be enabled or disabled on a per-event basis.

  • Sampling provides an accurate representation of software performance with negligible overhead.
  • Call graph profiling quickly identifies critical functions and call sequences. Call graph can now profile applications on remote Intel Itanium processor-based systems running Linux.
  • Intel Tuning Assistant has extensive tuning knowledge that enables it to suggest optimization techniques. It has been enhanced with tuning advice for software running on Intel Itanium 2 processor and Intel processor code named Prescott.
  • Java and .NET support has been improved. Remote Java profiling on IA-32 systems on Linux is now vailable. Mixed mode call graph of Java calls and native module calls is supported on Windows operating systems running on Itanium and Itanium 2 processor-based systems. For .NET the VTune analyzer can profile Managed C++ applications, including mixed DLLs. Both the Java and .NET wizards are now better tailored to different profiling scenarios such as profiling an application that is launched outside of the VTune analyzer. You can now remotely profile software running on Intel PXA250, PXA255, and PXA26x processors using the VTune Performance Analyzer GUI.
  • Counter monitor tracks system activity during runtime to determine if reduced available
    memory or file I/O performance issues slow down applications

Drill Down Through Your Code

Intel VTune Performance Analyzer offers insight into the performance of your software at the system, application, and microarchitecture-level through a wide range of profiling mechanisms and a rich set of views. Use the VTune analyzer to maximize the performance of your software on Intel architecture.

Works with the Tools You Know and Like

VTune Performance Analyzer can help you optimize your software whether you program in Fortran, C#, C/C++, Delphi, or Java. The analyzer supports Microsoft Visual Studio.NET, Intel« C/C++ and Fortran compilers, Compaq Visual Fortran, Java, Borland Compilers (Delphi, C++ Builder), and IBM Visual Age. Linux support is provided through a remote agent.
