Frame and Event API
Using the Frame and Event API in VTune Profiler allows for the customization of tracing
events that can be profiled by VTune Profiler. The Frame API allows for this to be done on a
per frame basis. For instance, in a game application, it is best to surround the game loop
with begin and end events to profile per frame. More information and examples on the VTune
Profiler Frame API can be found in the Frame API documentation.
The Event API allows for custom demarcation of events in your software for profiling. For
instance, to help optimize tasks in a game, you could use the Event API to track individual
tasks needed to compute a frame in a gaming application. More information and usage on the
VTune Profiler Event API can be found in the Event API documentation.
