Hi,
I found out that when compileing with -O flag it's does not meter what optimize flag i'm using once -O is specify vtune stop collecting data.
i installed a clean Ubuntu 11.1

this is the test.cpp code

#include "ittnotify.h"
void foo_data_collected()
{
for (int i=0; i<10000000L; i++);
}
void foo_data_not_collected()
{
for (int i=0; i<10000000L; i++);
}
int main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
// Assume that data collector was paused in user interface
foo_data_not_collected();
// Now resume data collecting
__itt_resume();
foo_data_collected();
// Pasue data collecting again
__itt_pause();
foo_data_not_collected();
// Resume data collecting again
__itt_resume();
foo_data_collected();
// The user shouldn't see data collecting in foo_data_not_collected() in result
return 0;
}
how can i use vtune whith -O2 or -O3 ?

I never use option "-Ox" when I tried Resume/Pause API. But I think this should be a probelm.

I have reported this problem to engineering team, and willupdate on this thread if any progress.

Currently, workaround is not to use "-Ox" when using Resume/Pause API.

Regards, Peter

i think i figure the problem the functions are inline when using -Ox flag

Inlined functions will cause the associated data to be associated with a calling function. So it's often useful to disable in-lining for profiling.
