Does VTune support Lua?

I am fairly new to VTune, and I need to profile a cpp program that makes Lua function calls. The program aborts when it makes the Lua call, so I guess VTune does not support Lua. Is it true? Thank you very much!

Hello,

VTune Amplifier doesn't support Lua at the moment. And you might be running Basic Hotspots, Concurrency or Locks & Waits collection which fails to instrument Lua calls.

You can try running Advanced Hotspots (and other hardware event-based) analysis which doesn't instrument your application, but collect PMU event samples and attribute them to process/thread/modules/functions.  You will not see function-level for Lua calls, but I hope that cpp part will be profiled and resolved as expected.

Regards, Katya
