Intel VTune Amplifier XE 2011 Build 119041
Applications like Intel VTune Amplifier XE aim to make the job of programmers and developers a lot easier by helping them analyze and identify possible performance issues in their code.
User friendly interface for data collection and analysis
Going through the setup procedure should take only a minute or two and then the program can be set in motion and made ready for gathering information and analyzing it.
Creating new projects and starting an analysis are less complicated that one would think, mainly due to the well organized layout and the manner in which all the configurations can be completed inside Intel VTune Amplifier XE.
Specify the project details and choose the analysis type to evaluate application performance
The first step when starting a new project involves picking the monitored application, setting its parameters (optionally) and picking the working directory. There are some advanced parameters that can be configured in there as well, including the child process analysis or providing the collection data limit and the thresholds for slow and fast frames.
The following stage implies choosing the process to analyze and the details related to this selection, then the user can set up the overall system performance analysis options before starting the actual operation.
Picking the analysis type is the final step before deploying the assessment and here are numerous methods to choose from, grouped into 3 large categories. Creating new types is possible and the application enables users to add new hardware event-based sampling analysis or user-mode sampling and tracing analysis.
A well equipped utility for thorough code performance assessment
All in all, Intel VTune Amplifier XE proves to be one of the best tools of its kind, as it comes with all the necessary means of evaluating the performance of any application. Quite easy to use and able to provide an in-depth inside insofar as the inner workings of a selected program are concerned.
