Offload Modeling Command Line Reference
- Use run_oa.py script to collect performance data and model performance on a target device using a single command with a set of default recommended settings.
- Use collect.py to collect baseline performance data for your application on a host device.
- Use analyze.py to model your application performance on a target device.

A call to the
Intel® AdvisorPython* command line tool.
advisor-pythonis recommended to run the scripts. The main advantage of using this command line tool is that it does not require you to install a specific Python version on your system because it calls to an internal Python version of the
The environment variable that points to the directory with the scripts. Replace it with:
A script name to run:
The path to a project directory.
Options to modify behavior specific to the script. You can specify several options per script. Using an option not supported by the script causes a usage error.
A target application to analyze.
You do not need to specify a target executable and target options when running the

Syntax Rules and Alternatives
- An option can be preceded by one or two dashes. This section uses two dashes before long version of options and one dash before short version of options. For example, the following commands are equivalent:advisor-python $APM/run_oa.py -hadvisor-python $APM/run_oa.py --help
- The path to a project directory must always follow after a script name. For example:advisor-python $APM/analyze.py ./advi
- If an option accepts values, they can be separated by a space or by an equal sign (=). This document uses space for all such options. For example, the following are equivalent:advisor-python $APM/analyze.py ./advi --out-dir ./reportadvisor-python $APM/analyze.py ./advi --out-dir=./report
- The target executable must be preceded by two dashes and a space. For example:advisor-python $APM/analyze.py ./advi --out-dir=./reportadvisor-python $APM/collect.py ./advi -- myApplication
- If you have Python 3.6 or 3.7 installed and it is the default Python version on your system, you can runOffload Modelingwith your system Python instead of theadvisor-pythontool:python $APM/run_oa.py ./advi -- myApplicationpython3.6 $APM/run_oa.py ./advi -- myApplicationpython3.7 $APM/run_oa.py ./advi -- myApplication
