I need to install VTune Amplifier but I don't have root privileges, so I have to ask my system administrator to install drivers.
My question is: since I installed a FREE 30-day version on another system, Will I be able to collect data after this license expires?
Short answer, yes.
Long answer: collection is free, but viewing and analysis requires a valid license. If you collection with the command line on the other system, add the '-no-summary' option, otherwise you will get an invalid license message (but results are still collected and valid). By default, VTune Amplifier attempts to display a summary report after collection and any report requires a valid license.
