vtune returns error when analysis uarch-exploration

oleotiger

I'm using Intel(R) oneAPI VTune(TM) Profiler 2021.1.1 Gold (build 613804).

When I wanna collect uarch-exploration with command "vtune -collect uarch-exploration -- sleep 3", I got errors like:

"vtune: Error: Cannot configure sampling event groups. The collection is terminated.
Use -knob event-config=? to see the list of available events for the target.
vtune: Collection failed."

I found that the error occurs when "pmu-collection-mode=detailed" where detailed is the default value.

"vtune -collect uarch-exploration -knob pmu-collection-mode=detailed -- sleep 3" returns the same error message.

But "vtune -collect uarch-exploration -knob pmu-collection-mode=summary -- sleep 3" works well.

 

How could I solve this problem?

Hi,

Could you share bad result directory?

OK. The detailed directory is compressed and attached.

In r017ue-bad.vtune

What's more, when I collect uarch metrics with command:  vtune -collect uarch-exploration -knob pmu-collection-mode=summary -target-pid=9215

Here the pid is a process of wrf.exe in openmpi application locally.

I got a weird result:

I'm sure there are memory access and L3 miss rate is almost 80% monitoring with pcm.

Why I got 100% core bound?

I encountered the same issue with 2021.1 version when I was analyzing an application on a remote server.

So how to solve the problem?

Is there any way to get another version of vtune that can work correctly?

Hi,

Developers told me that the issue should be fixed in the 2021.2 release. Please try the 2021.2 release. Can I close this case?

Thanks.

I'm waiting for the new version for bug fixing.
