"Intel Performance Tuning" using remote agent mode on linux

Jump to solution

Hi,
I'm using Vtune analyzer ver. 9.0 on windows, using the remote agent on linux (tunning my linux application). I want to check memory leaks and I saw that you give the "Intel Performance Tuning" tool. I wanted to know:
1. Can I work with this tool with that configuration (tunning my linux app through my windows desktop).
2. Where do I Install the drivers (my first guess is on my linux machine).

Thanks,
Dan

Hi Dan,

First at all, please use latest Intel VTune Performance Analyzer v9.1 Update 2 for Windows* which includes Linux*Remote Data Collector (RDC) - which can support morerecent processors and operation systems.

1. Your VTune Performance Analyzer for Windows* can notwork with Intel Performance Tuning Utility (PTU) remotely, it can work with Linux* RDC only
2. However if you already have installed Linux* RDC - vtune driver is loaded ("lsmod | grep vtune"), you don't need to build/load vtune driver again from PTU/vdk/src. That means, vtune driver can be shared for these two tools.
