Tabs

  • Properties
    tab: Displays information about a selected graph in the
    Graph
    tab, a node in the
    Node
    tab, and an edge in the
    Edge
    tab.
    The
    Node
    tab displays all properties supported for a given node type and allows you to interactively edit them. Some properties might be tied to the node type and are marked as read-only. See the Designer Workflow section for instructions on editing the properties of a node.
  • Analytics Report
    tab: Displays the output generated by any invoked analytics algorithms. Because analytics algorithms generate different outputs, this view changes when depending on an algorithm you run on the graph. The screenshot below shows a sample output for
    Compute Critical Path
    . The columns in this tab are sortable and enable efficient data manipulation during the performance tuning workflow.
    analytics report tab
  • Designer Mode
    tab: Shows the available node types you can use to construct a graph. This tab might change when new nodes are added to a Threading Building Blocks flow graph interface. For more information about each node type, use the
    What’s This?
    functionality on the node-type buttons.
    After you select a node type to insert into the graph, the mouse cursor takes the shape of the selected node type. You may add as many nodes of the same type as you want to by placing the cursor at a location on the canvas and clicking a mouse. To switch to a different node type, select the node type of interest in the tab.
    To exit the
    Insert Node
    mode, press the
    ESC
    key if the mouse is placed in the canvas area, or select the
    Insert Edge
    or
    Move Node
    modes from the
    Toolbar
    menu.

  • Debug Output
    tab: Displays messages output by the tool. Most of the messages are informational, but warning or error messages may appear.
    Warning
    messages are green, and
    Error
    messages are yellow.
    debug output tab
  • Source View
    tab: Displays the source mapping of a selected node if symbol resolution information has been captured during the collection.
    Currently, this feature is only supported on Linux* OS. To enable data collection with symbol resolution information, please refer to Building on a Linux* Operating System and Collecting Trace Files with an fgtrun.sh Script.

Product and Performance Information

1

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 reserverd 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.
