Sample Trace Files

The Flow Graph Analyzer includes five sample traces you can explore to get familiar with the features of the tool. These traces are in the
<advisor_installation>/fga/samples
directory. Whenever you launch the Flow Graph Analyzer, the
File
dialog box defaults to the
samples
directory.
The
samples
subdirectories contain samples you can load. The samples are described in the table below and explained in more detail in the sections that follow.

Notes
samples/code_generation
dining_like.graphml
Generates a Dining Philosophers sample.
feature_like.graphml
Generates a Features Detection sample.
samples/performance_analysis
feature_detection.graphml
feature_detection.traceml
Provides a runtime trace of a feature detection sample.
forward_substitution.graphml
forward_substitution.traceml
Provides a runtime trace of a forward substitution sample.
computer_vision.graphml
computer_vision.traceml
Provides a runtime trace of a computer vision sample.
The
performance_analysis
samples were captured by runtime tracing. Because runtime tracing cannot infer all types and cannot capture the user bodies of nodes, these samples do not contain complete descriptions of applications and cannot be used to regenerate the applications. You can generate a C++ code from these samples, but it will be incomplete and will need modification before compilation and execution. In contrast, the
code_generation
samples were completely described from within Flow Graph Analyzer. When you generate a C++ code from the
code_generation
samples, no modifications are necessary before compilation and execution.

Product and Performance Information

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.
