VTune host name string was invalid

Hello,

I've installed the VTune analyzer on a SLES11. I had to build a driver for the OS but this wasn't the problem in fact the whole installation made no problem at all.

I tried the example in the "Getting Started...@ tutorial and the following line:
./vtl activity -d 30 -c sampling -c callgraph -master sampling -app ./vtunedemo -moi ./vtunedemo run

Every case ends with the same error message:
<:DETERMINEREMOTESTATUS>Vtune host name string was invalid.

Where can I set the host name or how can I avoid this error.

Kind regards

Harry

Hi Harry,

I did same vtl command on my side, there is no problem. It seems this is EBSrelevant from error message - so would you please check below?

1)Are you capable to do EBS only?
./vtl activity -d 30 -c sampling -app ./vtunedemo run

2) Ensure what data collectors can be used in your system
./vtl query -lc

3) Ensure sampling driver is in your system
lsmod | grep vtune

By the way, the user has to install the product in "root" user.

Best regards, Peter

Hi Peter,

First of all, thanks for helping me.
I worked the list through.

1) ./vtl activity -d 30 -c sampling -app ./vtunedemo run
-> Same error as my command. <:DETERMINEREMOTESTATUS>Vtune host name string was invalid.

2) ./vtl query -lc
-> sampling and callgraph is availableon my system
3) lsmod | grep vtune
-> vtune_drv 237076 0

4) By the way, the user has to install the product in "root" user.
I installed the program as root user.
I'm also testing at the moment as root user. Is that a problem?
Maybe I should mention that my program is only a trial-version at the moment .

Hope you have some ideas left for me, I would really appreciate to work with vtune.

Best regards, Harry

Hi Harry,

Thanks for your reply. I don't think trial version to impact on the result. I even think thatyoucan work as a root user on VTune Analyzer. I doubt that VTune host name should not be the issue...

I reviewed the release notes of v9.1 U2 - SLES 11 still be not supported (I think it will be in next release). I understand that you built the driver successfully...but it hasn't been tested. So I suggest to use supported OS, like as
SuSE* Linux* Enterprise Server (SLES) 10.0 (through Service Pack 2) 2.6.16.60-0.21

I also suggest you to check if your processor is supported in release notes.

If need SLES 11 support urgently -pleaseaccess https://premier.intel.com to submit a ticket.
