VTune Amplifier

Run Intel VTune Amplifier Interactively


Running VTune Amplifier on the cluster follows the same general steps as any interactive job. The steps are:

  1. Set up Interactive VNC session
  2. Load intel compiler module
  3. Load script to run VTune
  4. Run amplxe-gui


Running Intel 2019 VTune Amplifier requires the use of RHEL7 PACE clusters

Set up VNC Session

  • Please see the VNC guide for instructions on how to set up the Interactive VNC session

Load Intel compiler module and setup script

  • Before running VTune, an intel compiler must be loaded as well as the script that loads VTune
  • In the VNC window, open a terminal by clicking top left Applications > System Tools > scroll down to Terminal and click
    • All commands here on will be typed in terminal in VNC
    • To load Intel 19 compiler, run module load intel/19.0
    • To run script that loads VTune:
source /usr/local/pacerepov2/intel/compiler/19.0/parallel_studio_xe_2019/psxevars.sh

Run Vtune Amplifier


Before running, make sure you have loaded the intel compiler module and ran the above source line

In a terminal (still in the VNC windows), run the command amplxe-gui, then VTune amplifier should start as normal.

Congratulations! You have succesfully ran Intel Vtune Amplifier on the cluster:
