Sandeep,
Normally that error message does not mean something is broken, it means simply that in fact the events that you're sampling for have not occurred in statistically signifant numbers. That said:
1) Try running the vtl experiment with the default sampling events, clockticks and instructions retired. Do you see an error? If not, try adding some secondary events of interest and note the vtune response.
2) If you are certain you want to use the specific events that you have already put in the vtl command: is calibration turned off? If so, turn it on and compare results. (Note that your application will run at least twice with calibration turned on: this is normal).
cheers

PS: normally, questions about VTune for LInux go into the VTune for LInux Forum, not this Windows Forum. FYI only. You can see the VTune for Linux forum here:
