Now that you know how to perform Locks and Waits analysis using Intel's VTune Amplifier, we discuss where to go next for additional resources. There is lots of documentation and more tutorials/examples on the Intel Developer Zone. The Intel Developer Zone is the go to spot for finding out more about this powerful performance profiling tool. There are other courses that focus on the Intel VTune Amplifier within the Lynda library. Another one focuses on CPU Thread Analysis.
- Now that you know how to perform locks and waits analysis…using Intel's VTune Amplifier,…let's discuss where to go next for additional resources.…There's a lot of documentation, tutorials,…and examples on the Intel Developer Zone.…The Intel Developer Zone is the go to spot…for quick start guides, analyzing locks and ways,…and identifying hardware issues.…For those interested in the SEP driver,…that does the actual sample collection,…there's the SEP User's Guide that…is included in the VTune installation.…I would encourage you to check out my other course,…Windows Performance Tools: Thread Analysis…with Intel VTune Amplifier to explore…other features of Intel's VTune Amplifier.…
I would recommend starting off by looking at the tutorials…and using a very basic application of your own…to profile in order to become more familiar with the tool.…That's it for me.…Thanks for watching, until next time.…
By the end of this course you will know how to use the Locks and Waits analysis on your own application and improve the efficiency of parallel task execution on Windows.
