Moving Experiments

If you want to move an experiment to another computer to analyze it, you should be aware of the dependencies of the analysis on the operating environment in which the experiment was recorded.

The experiment contains all the information necessary to compute metrics at the function level and to display the timeline. However, if you want to see annotated source code or annotated disassembly code, you must have access to versions of the load objects or source files that are identical to the ones used to build the target or the experiment.

See How the Tools Find Source Code for a description of the process used to find an experiment's source code.

To ensure that you see the correct annotated source code and annotated disassembly code for your program, you can copy the source code, the object files, and the executable into the experiment using the er_archive command before you move or copy the experiment.

See the er_archive(1) man page for more information.
