I'm trying to use VTune's software analysis modes (basic hotspots, concurrency, locks&waits) but it seems like an update somewhere in the toolchain triggers a fail since recently. Now all binaries I'm trying to profile immediately abort with the following error message:
Collection failed Do 22 Jun 2017 15:01:40 CEST Collection failed. The data cannot be displayed. [Instrumentation Engine]: Source/pin/elfio/img_elf.cpp: ProcessSectionHeaders: 601: assertion failed: SEC_vaddr_i(sec) >= IMG_seg_text_vaddr_i(img) && SEC_vaddr_i(sec) < IMG_seg_data_vaddr_i(img)
I doubt that the ELF format changed. GCC is also not the reason, I believe, since it only broke recently on Arch but also breaks on older GCC 6... I've observed this issue on various distributions now, i.e. Ubuntu 17.04 with GCC 6.3.0 20170406, OpenSuse Tumbleweed and ArchLinux with GCC 7.1.1 20170528.
Any idea what's going on here? Maybe some kind of page protection mechanism that got enabled recently?
