track-stack-accesses

Track accesses to stack memory.

Syntax

--track-stack-accesses
--no-track-stack-accesses
Default
Off (no-track-stack-accesses)
Actions Modified
collect
=tripcounts --enable-data-transfer-analysis
Usage
By default, the
Intel® Advisor
filters out all accesses to stack memory. When you enable this option, all accesses to stack memory are included in data transfer calculations.
This corresponds with
data-transfer=medium
or
data-transfer=full
.
Do not
use the
data-transfer=<mode>
with the
track-stack-accesses
option because
data-transfer=<mode>
overrides the
enable-data-transfer-analysis
and
track-stack-accesses
.
Enabling can increase overhead.
Example
Run a Trip Counts and FLOP analysis. Enable data transfer simulation and analyze accesses to stack memory.
$ advisor --collect=tripcounts --project-dir=./advi --flop --enable-data-transfer-analysis --track-stack-accesses -- myApplication
