Running Windows CPU profiler

Post by LtChambers » Tue Jun 11, 2019 1:27 pm

I'm trying to determine why my scientific application performs better on Windows than on Wine for one type of data. I typically run Wine in console-mode only, but to try to understand what was going wrong with my profilers I've tried it on a new Ubuntu Desktop 19.04 VM. (note that I first observed the performance penalty when running "native" Linux on AWS).

Wine version: 4.0 (Ubuntu 4.0-1)

The wineprefix is fresh after install except using winetricks to install dotnet472.

I've tried to get many different Windows profilers to work but have yet to succeed.

When I try to run the installer for AMD uProf, it fails when trying to install the Debugger Tools for x64. When I try to install those manually with the Windows 10 SDK, it doesn't get past the installer's splash screen. When I copy the uProf binaries from a Windows machine and run them, it gives:
wine AMDuProf/bin/AMDuProfCLI collect -o wine z:/data/msvc-debug-x86_64/msbenchmark.exe spectra binary e:\test\thermo\QE_DDA\20130311_DDA_Pit01.raw

Error: Failed to load driver.
If you have recently upgraded or installed AMD uProf, please reboot and try again.
Trying to open the driver (C:\windows\system32\drivers\AMDPc) returned error 2.
Error: Configuration failed 0x80070006
Trying to open the driver (C:\windows\system32\drivers\AMDPc) returned error 2.
When I try to run the installer for VSPerfCollectionTools, it seems to work. But when I run VSPerfCmd, it gives:
wine VSPerfCmd /admin:security /admin:driver,start /start:sample /output:wine.vsp /launch:msbenchmark /args:"spectra binary /data/test/Thermo/QE_DDA/20130311_DDA_Pit01.raw"

Does anybody know of a working profiler to run under Wine? Or can I run wine under a Linux profiler and somehow have it resolve the .NET/MSVC symbols?

When mscoree is not found, your WINEPREFIX is messed up - you need either wine-mono or native .NET.
That said, the application you're trying to run is talking about drivers, and trying to sue drivers in wine is... daring.

It's native .NET and the .NET works because my mixed mode (C++ and .NET) application works fine. It's just quite a lot slower for one type of data (which uses a vendor .NET DLL) than it is for other types of data (some of which ALSO use .NET DLLs!). Yes I know drivers are trouble on Wine but can anyone suggest a profiler that DOES work with Wine and MSVC symbols?
