search-n-dim

Enable searching for an optimal N-dimensional offload.

Syntax

--search-n-dim
--no-search-n-dim
Default
On (search-n-dim)
Actions Modified
collect
=projection
Usage
search-n-dim
enables combining up to three nested
parallel
loops into an N-dimensional offload. This can reduce estimated execution time on GPU and Time by Compute. Use
no-search-n-dim
to estimate offloading for each loop separately.
Only loops with no dependencies can be combined into an N-dimensional offload.
Do
not
use this option with
--threads
or
--enable-batching
.
Example
  1. Run Survey Analysis.
  2. Run Trip Counts and FLOP analyses of the Characterization stage.
  3. Do not search for an optimal N-dimensional offload when modeling your application performance on a target device.
