We use the Intel VTune Amplifier XE 2013 product. So far I cannot quite figure how to profile only a DLL I am interested in. Our product is a plug-in like entity that runs in the address space of a third party application (EXE) of which we have no control over.
I can only see a way to launch an executable in VTune once I create a project. Isn't there a way to supply the path to a DLL and allow VTune to just launch the app? Please remember we can't rebuild the app itself. We can only rebuild our DLL with the appropriate settings (release/PDB etc.) in order to allow them to be instrumented.
