Vtune Devcloud Admin Permission Issue

New Contributor I

I am trying to use Vtune for my FPGA project and it gives me error with missing sampling drivers I have followed this guide


and also found this message sent by @JaideepK_Intel on different topic but I don't have admin rights

The error message :


vtune: Error: Cannot start data collection because the scope of ptrace system call is limited. To enable profiling, please set /proc/sys/kernel/yama/ptrace_scope to 0. To make this change permanent, set kernel.yama.ptrace_scope to 0 in /etc/sysctl.d/10-ptrace.conf and reboot the machine.
vtune: Warning: Microarchitecture performance insights will not be available. Make sure the sampling driver is installed and enabled on your system.



In order to install the sampling drivers I tried to use command ./build_drivers inside the folder vtune/sepdk/src but the action requires admin rights. I copied this folder to my own directory. The build was done but this time I couldn't load drivers again admin rights issue
