Error while starting vtune profiler collection using root

I am trying to run vtune profiler from root user by,

=> source /opt/intel/oneapi/setvars.sh

After this I tried the command :

=> vtune -collect performance-snapshot sleep 5

ERROR :

[root@a1 opc]# vtune -collect performance-snapshot sleep 5
vtune: Error: The following events cannot be collected: UNC_M_CAS_COUNT.RD,UNC_M_CAS_COUNT.WR,UNC_M_PMM_RPQ_INSERTS,UNC_M_PMM_WPQ_INSERTS. Consider removing the events from the collection, loading the VTune Profiler sampling driver using the root credentials, or updating the OS kernel.
vtune: Collection failed.

 

And I tried to do the same collection using my normal user instead of root user, But then it worked. What changes should I make to make it work with the root user. Please help.

Please run self checker commands using below commands and check drivers are installed correctly. Please share the self checker logs to us.

 

cd /opt/intel/oneapi/vtune/latest/bin64/ or <install-dir>/bin64
