Create a Project

Before running an analysis with the VTune™ Profiler, you have to create a project, which is a container for an analysis target (application or script) and analysis type configuration and data collection results.
To create a project:
  1. On the Welcome tab, click
    New Project
    .
  2. In the
    Create a Project
    dialog box, specify the project name and location. Click
    Create Project
    .
  3. The
    Configure Analysis
    window opens.
    • The WHERE section specifies the target system.
    • The WHAT section specifies the analysis target.
    • The HOW section specifies the analysis type.
  4. Confirm that you can SSH from your host system to the target system. Run
    ifconfig
    on the target to get the IP address.
  5. To collect data on a remote Linux* system, a password-less SSH connection is required. For instructions, see Configure Password-less SSH Access from Linux to Linux.

Configure Password-less SSH Access from Linux to Linux

For remote collection on a Linux target system, set up the password-less mode on the local Linux or Linux host as follows:
  1. Generate a key with an empty passphrase:
    ssh-keygen -t rsa
  2. Copy the key to the target system:
    ssh-copy-id <user>@<target>
    If you do not have
    ssh-copy-id
    on your host system, use the following command:
    cat .ssh/id_rsa.pub | ssh <user>@<target> 'cat >> .ssh/authorized_keys'
  3. Verify that a password is not required anymore, for example:
    ssh <user>@<target> ls
