Documentation of VTune database formats?

One of my colleagues is wondering whether the internal format of the databases used by VTune to hold performance data is documented anywhere.

The PerfExpert tool generally uses HPCToolkit to collect performance data, but in many cases the users already have some VTune data, so if the format is documented we could expand the analysis to include data from multiple sources.

(We are also looking forward to future systems for which we expect VTune to be available earlier than HPCToolkit....)

Hello John,

VTune has very flexible command line report interface that will allow you to get counters/metrics by different groupings, by functions/loops/mixed,by source/assembly. The internal data base format is not documented for external use.

Thanks & Regards, Dmitry

Thanks!  We did not realize that the command line report interface was so flexible. 

It looks like we should be able to get the information we need through that interface.
