Use Case and Prerequisites
You can use Intel® VTune™ Profiler to identify and analyze performance bottlenecks in your serial or parallel application by performing a series of steps in a workflow. This tutorial guides you through these workflow steps while using a sample matrix multiplication application named matrix.
This tutorial requires you to install several Intel software tools. You can download and use these tools for free.
