I'm trying to run the "Memory Access" analysis but i'm getting the following error "This analysis type is not applicable to the current machine microarchitecture."
Reading the docs here https://software.intel.com/en-us/vtune-amplifier-help-memory-access-analysis I can see that the following are supported
This is running 2018 Update 1 (build 535340) on windows 10 with a X5650 so i'm assuming it should work as its a Xeon processor.
I'm also getting the following warning "On some systems based on the Intel microarchitecture code name Nehalem / Westmere with C-states enabled, this analysis type may cause system hanging due to a known hardware issue (see errata AAJ134 in http://download.intel.com/design/processor/specupdt/320836.pdf). To avoid this situation, disable all "Cn(ACPI Cn) report to OS" BIOS options before sampling with VTune Amplifier on such systems."
It does BSOD my machine if I run it but I have no idea how to disable. Cn(ACPI Cn) report to OS. Any suggestions ?
The documentation is not quite accurate here. Memory Access is supported on Intel® Xeon® processor code name Sandy Bridge or tater.
Your CPU is older and it is not supported.
