VTune Profiler supports command line analysis of applications running on a remote Linux or Android system (target) using the following product components installed:

  • Host: VTune Profiler command line interface (vtune)

  • Remote embedded Linux or Android target: target package with data collectors

To enable remote analysis, make sure the path to the VTune Profiler installed on the remote target system is specified. If you use the default installation directory, the VTune Profiler on the host system automatically detects the location of the remote components. Otherwise, use the -target-install-dir to specify the correct path.


This command runs Hotspots analysis with stacks for a Linux application and specifies a path to the remote version of the VTune Profiler installed to a non-default location:

host>./vtune --target-system=ssh:user1@ -target-install-dir=/home/vtune_2020.123456 –collect hotspots -knob sampling-mode=hw -knob enable-stack-collection=true -- /home/samples/matrix
