Usage at HPC2N 

Since VTune has a GUI, you will want to login with X11 forwarding turned on and with

ssh -Y username@host

if you want to use it that way.

To use the VTune module, first add it to your environment. Use:

module spider vtune

to see which versions are available, as well as how to load the module and the needed prerequisites.

Note that all names of modules are case-sensitive when loading the modules.

You can read more about loading modules on our Accessing software with Lmod page and our Using modules (Lmod) page.

You start the VTune gui with

amplxe-gui
