I think I didn't make it clear.
I want something like "number of IA64_INST_RETIRED events", but the vtl view gives me only"number of IA64_INST_RETIRED samples".
I am using VTune 8.0.4 for Linux.
vtl view -processes -sea 2
vtl -help -v sampling
-sea | -show-events-as
Show events as one of the folowing:
1 for samples
2 for event counts
8 for %selection
11 for complete information
Thanks, that solves the problem.
I am alsowondering if there is a complete documentation of the vtl command line. The help files which comes with VTune only introduces the commands briefly. And it is hard to find such options like -sea, or -opcode-filter.
