I don't see it in the BZ, but I believe that it works for Linux guests.
Will we ever make it work? Shall we postpone to 7.1?

Comment 6 Ronen Hod 2013-07-18 12:51:41 UTC
Gleb says that vTune writes to MSR that we do not and cannot support (probably MSR_PLATFORM_INFO), and that in the PMU test plan he already said not to test vTune.
