Collection Failed when running XE2017 for C++ hotspots analysis

Failed to run the target in both GUI and command line.

Errors I got:

amplxe: Warning: Cannot stop posix timer: __NR_timer_settime() system call returned -1.
amplxe: Warning: Cannot stop posix timer: __NR_timer_settime() system call returned -1.
amplxe: Error: [Instrumentation Engine]: Source/pin/elfio/img_elf.cpp: ProcessSectionHeaders: 601: assertion failed: SEC_vaddr_i(sec) >= IMG_seg_text_vaddr_i(img) &SEC_vaddr_i(sec) < IMG_seg_data_vaddr_i(img) 
amplxe: Collection failed.
amplxe: Internal Error

My program is a C++ QT Application running on Linux. 

Can anyone help me. Thank you.

Hi Jie,

What VTune version are you using? Can you please share the crash report with the following command and attach the report.zip ?

Hi Jie,

Can you please provide your Linux version, the command to run your application, and the full fail log? Thank you very much.

Best regards

I'm running into the same issue with these Linux versions:

ArchLinux: 4.10.13

Ubuntu 17.04: 4.8.0 and 4.10.0

OpenSuse 42.1: 4.7.4 or 4.8.0 (unsure which one was used back then)

I don't think it's a Linux version thing, rather I suspect an update in GCC or Clang that introduces a change in the ELF header format? Maybe related to some kind of page protection/randomization feature?

Note also that this affects any tracing-related VTune analysis. The General Exploration or Advanced Hotspot analyses work fine for me.

Thinking about it, I actually think it's an issue with whatever compiler flag differences got applied to the Qt libraries. Afaik 5.6 works fine with VTune, but 5.8 breaks. I'll try to bisect it and see if I can figure out the exact reason for this failure on VTune's side. One way or another, there's a bug in VTune.

OK, so this is super strange... Running a simple Qt application against the system Qt 5.7.1 on a Ubuntu 17.04 with the 4.9'er kernel works. But using any of the official Qt binaries breaks VTune...

#include <QCoreApplication>
#include <iostream>

int main(int argc, char** argv)
{
  QCoreApplication app(argc, argv);
  std::cerr << "hello world" << std::endl;
  return 0;
}

Compile and run VTune against system Qt 5.7:

Hi Jie, Milian,

This issue should be fixed in the upcoming Vtune AXE 2017 U4 release.

Jie, Milian,

Could you please file Online Service Center (https://supporttickets.intel.com/?lang=en-US) issue with request for trying updated version of VTune with a fix (you need to refer on this forum thread in OSC request)? 

In this case we will be able to provide you a pre-release VTune package to be sure that this issue is fixed.

BR,

Vladimir

you need a later build (518293 or later). Could you please ask your contact TCE to write me to prepare a proper build?

Collection now works fine with Update 4 (build 518293), but finalizing the data fails on my Arch system:

Data collection is completed successfully
    Mon 03 Jul 2017 10:06:30 AM CEST  The result file '/home/milian/intel/amplxe/projects/lab_mandelbrot_concurrent/r007cc/r007cc.amplxe' is successfully created and added to the project lab_mandelbrot_concurrent.

Error 0x40000003 (Unexpected internal error / invalid state) -- locale::facet::_S_create_c_locale name not valid

Opening the data with an older VTune release finalizes it properly and I can open it. Opening the now-finalized data in the newer VTune also shows me that this update seems to require an update to my license/license server. So overall this is far from pretty...

On an Ubuntu system it works a charm! Even with the 4.10 kernel.

Hi Milian,

Could you please upload your result?  We'll look at the finalization issue. 

When you wrote 'on my Arch system', do you mean Arch Linux? Could you please write an output of uname -a?

 

Also do you see any issues with license on an Ubuntu system?

BR,

Vladimir

On Ubuntu, I'm using a single-user license, not a floating user license that goes through our FlexLM. Thus licensing works fine there. In the past I also had to update the FlexLM server / license every now and then when a new VTune version was released. I suspect the same is true for Update 4 but to my knowledge there is no new FlexLM version available yet?

And yes, the arch system runs ArchLinux with 4.9.34-1-lts. The error sounds locale related, but that one looks fine to me:

$ locale
LANG=en_US.utf8
LC_CTYPE="en_US.utf8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_US.utf8"
LC_TIME="en_US.utf8"
LC_COLLATE="en_US.utf8"

LC_ADDRESS="en_US.utf8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_US.utf8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US.utf8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US.utf8"
LC_ALL=

I'll see if I can upload the result later.
