I was wondering when there will be a version of vtune that supports the 2.6 kernel instead of just the 2.4 kernel which is now the case as i understand from the release notes. I also see there is a commercial version of a vtune-alike program here from intel. Does this support 2.6 kernel? If there is no solution yet, when is the release planned of a version with this feature.
Support for 2.6 kernel is not yet released. If you have the paid-up version, and have a need for it, you might try submitting an issue on premier.intel.com asking to try out a pre-release version. Currently, it's a little lacking in polish as far as installation is concerned. Your license would be good for an upgrade within its term.
The release specify support for Suse 9.0 for Itanium version, kernel version 2.65_7.97. Will VTune similar support Suse 9.0 for Itanium SP1, kernel version 2.65_7.139, e.g. ship a driver as part of the package?
