viewing source code when transferring analysis on another computer

Hello

While I read most of the posts on source code visualization with VTune, I did not encounter my problem. This is my problem.

I have run VTune on top of Node.js for hotspots, advanced hotspots, general exploration, and memory accesses on a remote machine from the command line. When I bring the VTune collected data and the executable to the local machine, which was compiled with -g, I cannot see the source code correctly. On the remote machine VTune shows the code. The visualization on the local machine takes a lot of time.

Does anybody have any hint why is this happening?

Thank you in advance,

  Hello,

 Does it mean that you see incorrect source code or you do not have source code at all? Do you see assembly? If there is a separate symbol file with debugging information for you binary on the target system, it should be available on the host machine. Can you try to specify search directories and re-finalize the result on the host system?

Hi Denis

Thank you for your message. I have the source code of Node.js and I see the assembly. Regarding the separate symbol file, I am not sure. Where can I look for this file? Following your suggestion, I tried to check what is happening at finalization. I think I saw for a fraction of second when opening results with the GUI that the finalization is failing. And in the Source part I see most probably the beginning of the executable, a text beginning with "ELF ...". This is not the source code. How can I specify search directories and re-finalize the results on the host?

Thank you in advance,

  Octavian
