I'm quite sure I have installed the proper Windows symbols (Windows 7, 64 bit RTM), which were installed from here: http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/devtools/debugging/symbolpkg.mspx#d
Also found this thread that has me concerned:http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/using-the-microsoft-symbol-server-with-the-vtunetm-performa...
Thanks for this valuable report.
I don't know if this is a sampling issue, andthere is no way to run Call Graph on Windows 7* to verify.
I suggest to useIntel Parallel Amplifier -run HotspotAnalysis , and verifyif there is hot function called StrongNameFreeBuff, and check call stack to know callers.
If you found that problem persists on, please send a ticket to https://premier.intel.com with test case.
