VTune Profiler supports command line analysis of applications running on a remote Linux 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

When the VTune Profiler collects data remotely, performance data is temporarily saved to the default /tmp directory on the remote system. If, for some reason, you changed the default temporary directory, make sure to specify this path with the -target-tmp-dir option.

This command runs Hotspots analysis with stacks for a Linux application and specifies a non-default temporary location on the remote system:

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