Some developers like performance data representation in form of “call graph”, where nodes are functions and edges are function calls from caller to callee. Also functions are attributed with CPU time. This way of call sequence visualization is not necessary needed and VTune™ Amplifier XE doesn’t have this graph – there are a lot of other powerful interactive ways to view, sort and filter performance data.
But there are good news for those who likes call graphs: it’s possible to make them from VTune Amplifier XE results. This blog post describes the way how to do it.
Intel® Inspector XE, Intel® VTune™ Amplifier XE, and Intel® Advisor XE use Microsoft Windows* OS system fonts to select text size. This allows the components to automatically pick up any change you make for accessibility or personal preference without affecting any other component user on the system.
Therefore, changing the text size for the Intel® Parallel Studio XE GUI is simple. Just change the Windows* text size and reopen the component.
This free webinar series presents tools, tips, and techniques that will help sharpen your development skills on developing and improving your high performance compute applications for multicore and manycore on Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors. Expert technical teams at Intel as well as open source innovators discuss development tools, programming models, vectorization and execution models that will get your development efforts powered up to get the best out of your applications and platforms.
Recently, while profiling a workload on the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor using Intel Vtune, I ran across the following error:
ERROR connecting to MIC card, make sure sep_mic_server is running on the card, retrying connection…
ERROR connection to MIC card <1:1046>, errno 111
Download this guide to learn how to identify performance issues on software running on the Intel® Xeon® Processor E5 family
(based on Intel® Microarchitecture Codename Sandy Bridge-EP/EX/EN). The guide explains how to use Intel® VTune™ Amplifier XE's General Exploration profile for Xeon processor E5 servers. It explains how to identify the most common software performance issues and gives suggestions for how to address each.
Response to our February session of the Intel® Xeon® and Xeon® Phi™ Introduction to High Performance Application Development for Multicore and Manycore-Live webinar was gratifying and overwhelming, but finally we worked through all of your questions. Some of the questions required a context we lost with the transcript and some were only partially formed, or of special interest, or duplicates. We gathered together all the questions of general interest from the webinar and farmed them out to our experts for more complete answers. We'll assembled that list and sorted it by
When you profile your software with VTune™ Amplifier XE you often start from looking at the top function hotspots list. This allows you to see what functions are spending CPU resources, so you can focus your optimization efforts.
Function call counts can provide some additional information to assist in further optimization.
