Hello All,

I have problem with Vtune activities data.

"vtl show" shows me only one activity
But I observed that "VTune" directory in my home directory showing total size of 60 MB.

I can see that many directory in "VTune" dir with more than 4GB size, also a file named rawsamp.ub3 in my global dir has size 8 GB.

I need to clean up my disk & VTune data. I can delete the dir from VTune dir , but afraid of corrupting the VTune database.

can you please tell me how to correctly remove these activity data?

Thanking you,

-Regards,
Dny

If you can see orphaned files, you can clean them out, if you have permissions.

Tim is right!

If youhaveused "vtl pack" to save vtune data, no hesitate to remove these files under VTUNE directory.

Hi Dny,

The usercan delete one of activity/result under "vtune" directory by using vtl. Please see below examples:

1. vtl show; display all existing activities and results in your system
2. vtl delete -all;delete all activities, including theirresults
3. vtl delete a2::r3; delete result 3 from activity 2
4. vtl delete a4; delete activity 4

About viewing results, default vtl will display recentactivity with recent result, if the user doesn't specify a?::r?
1. vtl view
2. vtl view a2::r1; view result 1 of activity 2.

I don't know why you have 8GB size for vtune data.
If you use "vtl show" and findonly one activity, you can use "vtl pack filename" to generate .VXP file, save it. Then manually cleanup your disk space, finally use "vtl unpack filename.vxp" to import saved date to vtldefault project.

Hope it helps.

Hello Peter,

Thanks for your reply.
I used "vtl delete -all" command to delete all the activities but still I can see that "awsamp.ub3" file of size 8 GB, also VTune dir in home directory has size 56 GB.

I dont know why it is happening. Find the command output below

$vtl show
VTune Performance Analyzer 9.1 for Linux* build 226
Copyright (C) 2000-2009 Intel Corporation. All rights reserved.

The project is empty.

$ls -l rawsamp.ub3
-rw------- 1 dny dny 8173379584 Oct 23 11:52 rawsamp.ub3

Can you please give any other suggestion for this?

Thanking you,

Regards,
Dny
