PMU resource(s) currently being used by another profiling tool or process

Hi,

 

I would please your help with the following. We are using intel vtune on a cluster. I submit two different jobs that collect hardware counters  on two different nodes/boxes on our cluster. The first job runs okay, the second fails with the error   "Error: PMU resource(s) currently being used by another profiling tool or process." Now thse are two difffrened nodes on the cluster so I could not think why hardware counters cannot be used at the same time for two different jobs.

Is there a problem with installation or a vtune issue?Can anything be doen to resolve this?

Thanks a lot,

M

Maybe you need to check if other software (which uses PMU resource) is running, for example - perf.

Also, you may check vtune drivers installed or not:

lsmod | grep sep

lsmod | grep pax

lsmod | grep vtsspp

Hello,

Could you please provide VTune command line that you used for the both nodes?

Thanks & Regards, Dmitry
