Library APIs are failing with remote vtune



I am new to "Intel Vtune Amplifier" tool usage and started with "Intel Vtune Amplifier 2013" to analyse sample application programs with Linux.

I am trying to run sample application program remotely on a target machine using vtune. My host & target machines are Linux based.

My application is failed due to failures of Library APIs(for example "open()" is failing as shown below) , but the application is working fine when I executed locally with vtune. 

Given below the sample application that I am trying to run:


#include <stdio.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/stat.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <errno.h>

int main()
    int fd = -1;
    int i = 0;
    if ( (fd = open( "/dev/tty", O_RDWR, 0 )) == -1)
        fprintf(stderr, "open() failed with error: %d\n", errno);
        fprintf(stderr, "open() success , returned with fd: %d\n", fd);


When I executed above program remotely with vtune, getting the error as "amplxe: Error: target - open() failed with error: 6".

Pasted below the remote vtune command and its console output:


#/usr/intel/vtune_amplifier_xe_2015/bin64/amplxe-cl -target-system ssh:root@ --target-install-dir=/usr/intel/vtune_amplifier_xe_2015.1.1.380310 -collect hotspots -run-pass-thru=--no-altstack  -- /tmp/ex10

It looks like many other library APIs are also failing with remote vtune.  

Please let me know if others faced similar issues and what could be the root cause of these library failures.

Thanks & Regards,

means that your VTune installation is incomplete. Please uninstall vtune (run, in case of rpm-based Linux, make sure that the following command returns nothing:

> rpm -qa | grep vtune

Remove VTune folder from /opt/intel, in case it is present here. Then install it again. I also recommend you to switch to 2016 version.

Hi Vitaly,

Thanks for the response. I will try with 2016 version as you suggested.
