Setting Data Count

Data Count
is the number of data items generated and pushed through a graph.
For graphs where potential parallelism is apparent from topology, pushing a single item through the graph is enough to explore the parallelism of the graph.
However, for cases where the parallelism is not readily apparent, as with a node with an unlimited concurrency, pushing a single item through the node is not enough to explore parallelism. Therefore, to ensure the graph is saturated, you need to set data count:
  1. Open the
    Preferences
    windows.
  2. Go to the
    TBB
    category,
    Scalability
    tab.
  3. Change the default number of data items to the number of cores available on the system in the
    Data Count
    field, based on the topology of the graph and the type of nodes in the graph.

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.
