Server in Containers

Intel® VTune™
Profiler
Server offers additional command line interface options that help make its usage in containerized environments more convenient.
These command line options are designed to trigger certain actions inside
VTune
Profiler
Server in order to make it more convenient to run
VTune
Profiler
Server inside a container.
All of these options apply to the
vtune-backend
binary.

You can use the
--base-url

VTune
Profiler
Server. This option can be useful when a static port is required for
VTune
Profiler
Server access while running

Profiler
Server inside a Docker* container.
Format:
--base-url=http(s)://<host>:<port>/<pathname>/
Usage Example:
  1. Enable SSH port forwarding on the host:
    ssh -L 127.0.0.1:3000:127.0.0.1:8080 <ssh host name>
  2. Run
    VTune
    Profiler
    Server with custom URL and port:
    vtune-backend --web-port=8080 --base-url=https://127.0.0.1:3000
    VTune
    Profiler
