EBS profiling unsupported on xeon

I'm having troubles trying to collect cache miss statistics
on Intel Xeon 3.00ghz family 15 model 6 stepping 4 (4 cores x 2 hyperthreads)
(it's difficult for me to say manufacture's exact model).
Host os: centos-6-x64

Installer of the latest VTune says "unsupported Intel architecture".

I cannot see exact reason in release notes.
I beleived, my processor is quite new...

Could someone please tell me what's wrong?

Best regards,
Evgeny.

"Family 15" meansPentium 4 generation / brand, these processors are not supported again in latest VTune AmplifierXE 2011 Update 3/4. You can install old product - VTune Performance Analyzer 9.1 U8

You can see release notes about supported processors,from Core 2 Duo - "CPU Family 6"

Thanks for your reply, Peter.

BTW, are these versions available on official site?

With kindest regards,

If you have already registered the product, please go download sites directly:

1. Windows - https://registrationcenter.intel.com/RegCenter/Download.aspx?productid=1388
2. Linux- https://registrationcenter.intel.com/RegCenter/Download.aspx?productid=1384

Select "2011" for VTune Amplifier XE 2011, select "9.1" for VTune Performance Analyzer

License file is workable for two products, both.

I've just installed Vtune Ampilfier XE 2013 and am told my Xeon 5050 is not fully supported. I can't find the reference now, but thought I had seen a supported CPUs document stating Xeon 5xxx support. Is there a better guide to this? I was hoping to use VTune on a mix of older hardware soon and would like to know clearly in advance what might work or not.

Intel® Xeon® Processor 5050 actually is very old processor - no LLC (only L2 cache), 65nm technology, no SSE4, which was launched several years ago. And 5050 doesn't mean E5000, usually E5000 includes 55xx serial & 56xx serial - that is why it said "not fully supported" Hope that I have answered your question.
