result, source, and binary snapshots

Hi,

I just switched to using vtune after some experience with advisor. Advisor has a snapshot feature that packs all sources and binaries together with results into an *.advixeexpz file. This is convenient when editing, recompiling, and rerunning code because one is still able to look at old benchmarks as reference and navigate through the old source and assembly. And one can copy these files conveniently from a server where a profile is created to a local computer to investigate the results. I didn't see a similar feature in the VTune documentation but might have missed it.

Is there a similar snapshot feature in VTune?

Thanks,

Paul

Hello Paul,

Currently VTune does not have such a snapshot feature.

You can use undocumented "-archive" option to pack the binaries into result folder. The option is available in command line::

>vtune -archive -r <my_result_folder>

To cache sources you need to have a correspondent option switched ON in VTune GUI - invoke menu from the toolbar and choose Source/Assembly section to switch this ON.

After that any drill down to source from VTune GUI or command line reports generated with source granularity will cache the sources of interest.

Thanks & Regards, Dmitry

I'd still appreciate if such a snapshot feature would make it into a future release and hear about it. But the question itself is answered and the thread can be closed.

Regards,

Paul
