As event based sampling isn't supported for AMD CPU's, the detail of your analysis would be limited. If you are trying to do time based sampling of all events on your system, that may not be appropriate to your goal. If I understand you, that is not an AMD specific problem.
If it is appropriate to your application, you could embed your asm() in C code, compile with debug symbols, and profile it as a C application. If you know already where the time is spent, this may not add much to your knowledge. Even with event based sampling on an Intel processor, you might not be able to address directly the question of finding out whether performance is affected by re-ordering asm instructions.
If you have faults and assertion failures when using Vtune in a non processor dependent way, using a current version of Vtune, you should submit your case through yourpremier.intel.com account.
I have tried to perform the same test (Quick analysis)on two computers: one Intel based and other AMD based. Vtune works fine on Intel computer however I have got theerror (An error occured during drill-down)on AMD computer.
I'm just wondering how many forum users have used the VTune analyzer on non-genuine Intel processors? If so, what parts of the analyzer did you use and how?
Is this something that Intel should enable?
