A follow up question I have RE VTune and Windows 7....
Does VTune9.1 Udate 7 support thread profiling of either 64-bit or 32-bit applications running on win7 64-bit?
Any info on this will be appreciated.
No, on win7-64 only event based sampling is supported. That works well for me.
I too attempted Thread Profiler, including OpenMP specific, and got expert confirmation it's not supported. Profiling by linking the openmp-profile library does work.
Just to confirm what tim18 said in the previous post: VTune 9.1 Update 7 does not support profiling based on binary instrumentation technology on Windows 7. It includes Call Graph and Thread Profiler (and Thread Checker as well, as a separate product).
If you profileOpenMP application withusing source level instrumentation (by adding /Qopenmp-profile option during compilation w/ Intel Compiler), it doesn't affect the binary instrumentation engine and Thread Profiler will work (in the OpenMP specific collection mode)fine.
