Collect Performance Metrics

In the
Offload Advisor
workflow, you must (1) run
performance profiling
to collect data about your application, and (2) run
performance modeling
and generate your report results. These steps are generally performed using the
collect.py
and
analyze.py
scripts, respectively.
The unified data collection method below uses the run_oa.py script, which combines both scripts, but if you choose to run data collection separately, you must still use analyze.py to obtain report results.
You can use one of the following methods to run performance profiling. The methods vary in simplicity and flexibility. Based on how detailed the analysis needs to be, choose the method that suits you best:

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.
