If you are using VTune 2.0 for Linux and have not tried the gui plugin the the vtl viewer, do yourself a favor and try it out now. It is *excellent.
To start it, simply type: vtl view a#::r# -gui
A couple of tips: If your code contains multiple shared libraries the gui will, by default, give you a hierarchical function listing on a library-by-library basis. To get a flat list (more useful, IMHO), right mouse and unselect Hierarchy. Second, when you change the sort order in the file list (e.g. from Self Time, to Total Time, it going to the top of the window is a real drag. The scroll bar has non-standard behavior (it is not possible to middle mouse at the target location and you must left-mouse-drag the scroll-bar to the top) but CTRL-HOME will do the job.
The one downside of the GUI is that it will not give Self-Time of a function or Total-Time (inclusive time) as a percentage of the total run time. I hope this will be improved.
Note that the next release of the vtl software, in beta next quarter according to the current plan, will have a signficantly improved GUI interface, that will not only be available for callgraph, but sampling as well.
Because for VTune 2.0 for Linux the callgraph viewer is an add-on, an extra plug in, I think it has its own tar ball.
I just went to premier.intel.com, and file downloads. From there, I asked for VTune Analyzer for Linux files. The callgraph viewer is a separate tarball as I remembered (whew! nice to get them right once in a while!!) and is specifically this filename:
If you've registered for VTune 2.0, you should see the same thing at Premier.
Your plan of attack should be, make sure VTune 2.0 is installed and works, with a callgraph activity, say, like this:
$ vtl activity -c callgraph -app /bin/ls -moi /bin/ls run
if it runs, view the ASCII data:
$ vtl view
THEN, untar this second file and run its install program:
# tar xvf vtune_cgview_1.0.277.tar
# ../install.sh (again, if memory serves)
The install program should prompt you for some defaults, and successfully complete. It takes less then a minute on my system.
To run it, you just add that -gui to the current (or any) view data command:
$ vtl view -gui
If you continue to have trouble downloading that softwarelet me know here, and I'll to ftp it to you (it's a little more than 10MB).
