This article covers the installation steps with troubleshooting and tips for Intel® Parallel Studio XE on Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Note, some of the tools may have functional restrictions due to the cloud environment. For system requirements, please see Release Notes for details. For further Intel related support, visit https://software.intel.com/support.
This article assumes you are familiar with GCP environment. To learn more about working with GCP see: https://cloud.google.com/docs/
Specifically, this article assumes:
Security settings in your IE browser may interfere with product download and installation. To ensure they are turned off do the following:
Note: Best practices suggest reverting to more secure settings after completing setup and installation.
Once your GCP instance is up and running you can proceed with the product installation.
If you received an Intel email for the software product you acquired, follow the instructions in the email to register your Serial Number and create an Intel Registration Center account (if you don’t already have one).
Intel® Parallel Studio XE requires an existing installation of Microsoft* Visual Studio (MSVS). If you have a license for a full MSVS product please install it at this time. If you don’t have a license, you may get the latest MSVS community license and install it in the instance prior to the installation of the Intel Product.
Important: MSVS must be installed prior to the installation of Intel Parallel Studio XE to enable integration. Make sure MSVS is preinstalled on the instance where Intel Parallel Studio XE will be installed. MSVS is not required for the installation of Intel Software License Manager..
You will only be able to use Intel® VTune™ Amplifier 2017 in basic hotspots and Locks & Waits. This is due to running the tool in a virtual environment. For more information see User Reference Guide.
To download the product:
When downloading you have a choice between using the online installer and an offline package.
A named-user license is limited to n simultaneous activations as defined in our Software EULA.
Floating license installation has two parts: License Server installation and Product installation.
Important: Make sure that the instance you install the License Manager on is protected against termination and is accessible from other instances.
Note: License server can serve both Windows and Linux OS however the license type should match the client OS. Please see Product Licensing FAQ for more information.
On the client set the environment variable INTEL_LMD_DEBUG to 1 and run a tool such as the compiler. At the bottom of the output you should see where the license came from.
For floating license server you should see a note about successful checkout.
Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
