Intel(R) Cluster Studio XE 2013 is a powerful tool suite - which helps you to develop applications, with low latency Intel MPI library, high performance C++/FORTRAN compiler, native profiling component named VTune™ Amplifier XE 2013, node level analysis component named Intel® Trace Collector/Analyzer, Threading and memory correctness components named Inspector XE 2013.

Intel® VTune™ Amplifier XE 2013
With the recent updates to Intel’s VTune™ Amplifier XE 2013, the user interface for the symbol search directories has been streamlined. The new interface should facilitate faster symbol lookups and quicker finalization waits. You can find the new interface in the project properties dialog.
Article <Java support is back in VTune™ Amplifier XE> informs that VTune(TM) Amplifier XE 2013 already supports Java application, and Attaching to Java* processes for hardware event-based sampling is supported since VTune™ Amplifier XE 2013 Update 4.
On some occasions, especially if you are working behind a corporate or university firewall, you may find that the Intel® XDK will either not start or will function in what is known as “offline mode.” This is generally caused by problems with proxy settings, although it can also be caused by a bad or slow network connection.
What is DAPL UD?
Traditional InfiniBand* support involves MPI message transfer over the Reliable Connection (RC) protocol. While RC is long-standing and rich in functionality, it does have certain drawbacks: since it requires that each pair of processes setup a one-to-one connection at the start of the execution, memory consumption could (at the worst case) grow linearly as more MPI ranks are added and the number of pair connections grows.
Intel® Advisor XE, Intel® VTune™ Amplifier XE, and Intel® Inspector XE all use system GTK* fonts for drawing. They need a vector (scalable) font installed as a default font for the user to show text in different sizes: bigger for titles, smaller for tables and text.
However, you may want to change the font or text size for preference or accessibility reasons. We do not recommend changing the system fonts, obviously, and they are easy enough to override with user-defined fonts stored separately for each user.
Intel® Advisor XE 2013 Update 3 guides developers to add parallelism to their existing C/C++ programs. Using this tool, you can identify where most of the time is spent in your code, which of those locations can actually scale to multi-core and what correctness issues are lurking in those locations. The information provided by this tool can help you decide where to thread your code more judiciously. You can learn more about this tool at the Intel(R) Advisor XE 2013 home page.
