Attach ITT APIs to a Launched Application

You can use the Intel® VTune™ Profiler to attach to a running application instrumented with ITT API. But before launching the application, make sure to set up the following environment variable for the ittnotify_collector:

On Windows*:

INTEL_LIBITTNOTIFY32=<install-dir>\bin32\runtime\ittnotify_collector.dll

INTEL_LIBITTNOTIFY64=<install-dir>\bin64\runtime\ittnotify_collector.dll

On Linux*:

INTEL_LIBITTNOTIFY32=<install-dir>/lib32/runtime/libittnotify_collector.so

INTEL_LIBITTNOTIFY64=<install-dir>/lib64/runtime/libittnotify_collector.so

On FreeBSD:

NOTE:

Header and library files are available from the vtune_profiler_target_x86_64.tgz FreeBSD target package. See Set Up FreeBSD* System for more information.

INTEL_LIBITTNOTIFY64=<target-package>/lib64/runtime/libittnotify_collector.so

NOTE:

The variables should contain the full path to the library without quotes.

Example

On Windows:

set INTEL_LIBITTNOTIFY32=C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\oneAPI\vtune\latest\bin32\runtime\ittnotify_collector.dll 
set INTEL_LIBITTNOTIFY64=C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\oneAPI\vtune\latest\bin64\runtime\ittnotify_collector.dll 

On Linux:

export INTEL_LIBITTNOTIFY32=/opt/intel/oneapi/vtune/latest/lib32/runtime/libittnotify_collector.so
export INTEL_LIBITTNOTIFY64=/opt/intel/oneapi/vtune/latest/lib64/runtime/libittnotify_collector.so

On FreeBSD:

NOTE:
You may need to change the path to reflect the placement of the FreeBSD target package on your target system.

setenv INTEL_LIBITTNOTIFY64 /tmp/vtune_profiler_2021.9.0/lib64/runtime/libittnotify_collector.so

After you complete the configuration, you can start the instrumented application in the correct environment and Intel® VTune™ Profiler will collect user API data even if the application was launched before the VTune Profiler.
