Intel® VTune™ Amplifier uses kernel drivers to enable hardware event-based sampling and collect event-based sampling data from. During the hardware event-based sampling (EBS), also known as analysis in the sampling mode, the Intel® VTune™ Amplifier profiles your. To enable hardware event-based sampling analysis on your platform, the Intel® VTune™ Amplifier uses sampling drivers that require root.

VTune Amplifier installer automatically uses the Sampling Driver Kit to build drivers for your kernel with the default installation options.

Verify the sampling driver is installed correctly. If required, install the driver. Verify the sampling driver is installed.

Sampling Interval

If required, build and install the driver. You may need kernel header sources and other additional software to build and load the kernel drivers on Linux. A Linux kernel update can lead to incompatibility with VTune Amplifier drivers set up on the system for event-based sampling EBS analysis.

If the system has installed VTune Amplifier boot scripts to load the drivers into the kernel each time the system is rebooted, the drivers will be automatically re-built by the boot scripts at system boot time. Kernel development sources required for driver rebuild should correspond to the Linux kernel update.



If you loaded the drivers but do not use them and no collection is happening, there is no execution time overhead of having the drivers loaded. The memory overhead is also minimal.

Build and Install the Sampling Drivers for Linux* Targets

You can let the drivers be loaded at boot time for example, via the install-boot-scriptwhich is used by default and not worry about it. Unless data is being collected by the VTune Amplifier, there will be no latency impact on system performance.
