Tune Linux application from Windows Desktop

Hello, I have the license for Intel VTune Amplifier XE for Windows and I would like to tune my Linux application from Windows desktop by remotely collecting data. I know that previous version of VTune 9.1 for Windows contained the installer of Remote Data Collector for Linux, but I can't find it in the current version. Is it still possible and how to do it?

Can you find old vtune 9.1 U8 for Windows from https://registrationcenter.intel.com/RegCenter/Download.aspx?productid=1388&sn=? which should include linux tar package to be installed on Linux side.

However vtune 9.1 doesn't support latest processors, and operation systems.

For using Amplifier XE, you have to install Linux package (but data collector only, no license file required) from https://registrationcenter.intel.com/RegCenter/Download.aspx?productid=1384&sn=
Also you have to install Amplifier XE package for Windows, access same URL of vtune 9.1 U8 for Windows (change publishing from "9.1" to "2011")

There is no RDC for Amplifier XE, use command line amplxe-cl to collect data on Linux side, then copy resultdirectory to Windows side for analyzing.(You may copy module / source files - if you want todo source view on Windows side).

Regards, Peter

To access Linux package of VTune Amplifier XE I need to provide license number so I can't download it.

You can access http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-vtune-amplifier-xe/to apply a trial license for Linux, get the package.When installing the Linux package, select "I want to evaluate my product or activate later", use "change components to install", unselect 2 "Amplifier XE Graphical user interface".

Thus, you never use amplxe-gui on Linux, no license file is required. Use amplxe-clto collect performance data, analyze results on Windows.

Yes. I have verified.

If I removed all license files under /opt/intel/licenses, amplxe-cl still can work properly.
This means, amplxe-cl doesn't need the license file - for data collection.

Thanks, Peter
