Collecting Trace Files

While executing, your application collects trace files only if there is an appropriate collector library at the locations specified by the INTEL_LIBITTNOTIFY32 or INTEL_LIBITTNOTIFY64 environment variables. The INTEL_LIBITTNOTIFY32 path is searched by 32-bit executables and the INTEL_LIBITTNOTIFY64 path is searched by 64-bit executables.

To collect and convert trace files to use them with the Flow Graph Analyzer, chose one of the following options:

  • Collect traces by starting your application from the Flow Graph Analyzer GUI.
  • Set up your environment so a trace is collected when the application is started outside of the GUI.

Both approaches require you to build the application following the steps from Building an Application section for your operating system.
