Exception: BISTRO FAILED

Hi:

VTune Performance Analyzer 8.0 for Linux* is installed successfully!Therunning environment ofthe machine is Linux lc.scut.edu.cn 2.6.9-5.0.5.EL_lustre.1.4.5smp #1 SMP Fri Aug 19 23:46:00 EDT 2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux.

only the callgraph is selectedto install and so i didnot build the kernal. i learn the sampling module should do it.

when i run the samples vtunedemo,i can get the right result successfully! now, i want to analyzer my program ParticleSim which is the mpi program. The commad is used such as:vtl activity -c callgraph -app ./ParticleSim,"-f ./examples/cube.xml" -moi ./ParticleSim

but some error arise:

The Activity is running.

Thanks!

Hi,

This is an interesting question about profiling of MPI application. Can you say what MPI do you use and what is the full command line to invoke your application without VTune? The cause of failure can be MPI specific or your application specific. To understand ityou can run some simple MPI application under VTune (for example that prints only "hello world" or something).

VTune 8.0.1 released in July, 2006. The build can be downloaded from premier.intel.com, file: vtune_linux_8.0.1.449.tar.gz. You can check if the same problem appears with VTune 8.0.1.

Thanks,

Andrey
