You can run the single measurement sample with command-line options to see various uses of the measurement library. This guide provides examples of commands and outputs. Before attempting to run the sample, make sure you have completed the following prerequisites.


This guide is based on a host-target setup. Confirm that you have a host system and a target system that are configured according to the Get Started Guide.

Confirm Real-Time Kernel

Confirm that the target system is running the real-time kernel.
  1. From your host system, connect to the target system:
    ssh <user>@<target>
  2. In the SSH session, run the following command to run
  3. In the output, find the
    RT Kernel Checker
    row and confirm that it contains
    +-----+-------------------+--------------------------+----------------------+----------+ | 4 | RT Kernel Checker | Checks that RT kernel is | Current kernel is RT | RT_READY | | | | used | | | +-----+-------------------+--------------------------+----------------------+----------+
  4. If the
    RT Kernel Checker
    row does not report
    , reboot the target system and make sure to select the RT kernel.

Build the Sample

The Intel® TCC Tools package for the target system contains a prebuilt binary of this sample. The binary is configured to run from any directory on the target system.
If you want to build the sample, use the provided makefile.
For systems running the PR1 release of the Yocto Project*-based BSP for Intel Atom® x6000E Series processors, you must take additional steps to build samples on the target system:
  1. Go to the sample directory:
    cd /usr/share/tcc_tools/samples/<sample_name>
  2. Change the library name in the Makefile to libittnotify64.a:
    sed 's/ittnotify/ittnotify64/g' -i Makefile

Run the Sample

After completing the setup, try these examples:
