Here we look at the GUI for the Intel VTune Amplifier as part of the integration with Visual Studio. The options that are added inside of Visual Studio. The integration option lets you seamlessly inspect source code, make changes and immediately check if those changes had any benefits as a result, all within the same environment.
- [Instructor] Let's explore the Visual Studio…VTune Amplifier GUI a bit more.…Here's the snapshot that shows the layout…of the VTune results.…At the very top left, we have A.…A is for configuring and controlling…VTune results collections.…This is where we go to create a new VTune project.…Below that we have B.…B is where the VTune results will show up…after you've analyzed a project.…C, C is for changing the viewpoint…by clicking on the underlined Change link.…This lets you switch out of the locks and waits analysis…hotspots by thread concurrency view,…and a hotspots by CPU usage view.…
This lets you easily switch to see…what module used up the CPU the most.…Below that we have the different panes, which is D.…This is where we can toggle between window panes…inside the project results.…This is for switching from the Summary page…to the Bottom-up page, which displays statistics…on the overall application execution.…The Bottom-Up page shows CPU time…and processor utilization.…The Caller/Callee window displays…parent and child functions of the selected focused function.…
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.
