- Configure Yocto Project*/Wind River* Linux* and Intel® VTune™ Profiler with the Intel System Studio Integration Layer
Set Up Project
Before you run an analysis with Intel® VTune™ Profiler, you must first create a project. This is a container for an analysis target, analysis type configuration, and data collection results. You use the VTune Profiler user interface to create a project. You cannot create one from the command line.
For Microsoft Visual Studio* IDE, VTune Profiler creates a project for an active startup project, inherits Visual Studio settings and uses the application generated for the selected project as your analysis target. The default project directory is My VTune Results-[project name] in the solution directory.
For the standalone graphical interface, create a project by specifying its name and path to an analysis target. The default project directory is %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\Amplifier XE\Projects on Windows* and $HOME/intel/vtune/projects on Linux*.
To create a VTune Profiler project for the standalone GUI:
Click New Project... in the Welcome screen.
In the Create a Project dialog box, configure these settings:
