Intel« VTune? analyzers help locate and remove software performance
bottlenecks by collecting, analyzing, and displaying performance data from the
system down to the source level.
Key features include sampling capability, call graph capability, counter
monitor, and an enhanced Intel« Tuning Assistant. Intel VTune Performance
Analyzer provides both a graphical and a command line interface on Windows
platforms; optional Visual Studio .NET integration; and remote support for IA-32
and Intel« Itanium« processor-based Linux applications as well as sampling on
Intel« PXA250, PXA255, and PXA26x processor-based applications.
Features and Benefits
- Sampling provides developers with the most accurate
representation of their software's actual performance, with negligible
- Call graph profiling provides developers with a pictorial view of
program flow to quickly identify critical functions and call sequences
- Counter monitor allows developers to track system activity during
runtime which helps identify system level performance issues
- Remote agents for Linux provide the ability to collect
performance data on a remote Linux system while maintaining the Windows GUI
ease of use for data analysis and interpretation
- Intel« Tuning Assistant automatically suggests code improvements
based on an extensive knowledge base, increasing productivity
- Visual Studio .NET integration provides the ability to use Intel
VTune Performance Analyzer within their Visual Studio .NET IDE, improving
ease of use and productivity
- Windows command line capability provides power and flexibility to
collect sampling data independent of the VTune analyzer GUI, allowing them
to automate sampling
- Trial version is available
What?s New in the Intel VTune Performance Analyzer 7.1
Intel VTune Performance Analyzer offers a sampling over time view, which
allows users to understand how software performance characteristics change over
time. Calibration of events in event-based sampling can now be enabled or
disabled on a per-event basis.
- Sampling provides an accurate representation of software
performance with negligible overhead.
- Call graph profiling quickly identifies critical functions and
call sequences. Call graph can now profile applications on remote Intel
Itanium processor-based systems running Linux.
- Intel Tuning Assistant has extensive tuning knowledge that
enables it to suggest optimization techniques. It has been enhanced with
tuning advice for software running on Intel Itanium 2 processor and Intel
processor code named Prescott.
- Java and .NET support has been improved. Remote Java profiling on
IA-32 systems on Linux is now vailable. Mixed mode call graph of Java calls
and native module calls is supported on Windows operating systems running on
Itanium and Itanium 2 processor-based systems. For .NET the VTune analyzer
can profile Managed C++ applications, including mixed DLLs. Both the Java
and .NET wizards are now better tailored to different profiling scenarios
such as profiling an application that is launched outside of the VTune
analyzer. You can now remotely profile software running on Intel PXA250,
PXA255, and PXA26x processors using the VTune Performance Analyzer GUI.
- Counter monitor tracks system activity during runtime to
determine if reduced available
memory or file I/O performance issues slow down applications
Drill Down Through Your Code
Intel VTune Performance Analyzer offers insight into the performance of your
software at the system, application, and microarchitecture-level through a wide
range of profiling mechanisms and a rich set of views. Use the VTune analyzer to
maximize the performance of your software on Intel architecture.
Works with the Tools You Know and Like
VTune Performance Analyzer can help you optimize your software whether you
program in Fortran, C#, C/C++, Delphi, or Java. The analyzer supports Microsoft
Visual Studio.NET, Intel« C/C++ and Fortran compilers, Compaq Visual Fortran,
Java, Borland Compilers (Delphi, C++ Builder), and IBM Visual Age. Linux support
is provided through a remote agent.
