Cannot see processes names and paths on sampling results

I cannot see the processes names and paths when viewing the results:

I created and run the following sampling activity:

vtl activity MispredictionPenalty-OO-2 -d 100000 -c sampling -o "-sterm yes -ec en=RESOURCE_STALLS.BR_MISS_CLEAR en=CPU_CLK_UNHALTED.CORE" -app ./perlbmk_peak.lnx32-icc-91-fast-g,"-I. -I./lib makerand.pl > makerand.out 2> makerand.err" -moi ./perlbmk_peak.lnx32-icc-91-fast-g run


when I view the results I only get the process name and the process path for the kernel module (vmlinux-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6). How can I get the process name and paths for the other processes, including the application that I'm interested in.

If you don't have options other than the RVA view, make sure that your compilation uses -g both for building objects and for linking. If you still have problems, try PTU (see WhatIf forum).

Thanks for the quick answer Tim, I had compiled with -g option, but I'm sure it is not the problem, because even the example that comes with vtune does not show the processes names and paths.

What is PTU, and where can I find the WhatIf forum?

Thanks again

The vtunedemo

I run:

$ vtl activity -c sampling -app /opt/intel/vtune/samples/vtunedemo/vtunedemo -moi vtunedemo run

Then:

I find I must run insmod-vtune after each reboot, and rebuild vtune driver after each kernel update. PTU shares license and VTune driver with a recent VTune version.

Thanks Tim, I apreciate your help. I re-compiled the module and reloaded (had to reboot), now it shows the process names and paths.
