Results

Data collected by running
Intel Advisor
tools is stored in a result. When you run one of its tools, the
Intel Advisor
executes a target, identifies issues that may need handling, collects the results and shows it in the Results subdirectory
in the
Solution Explorer
in Microsoft Visual Studio* or
in the
Project Navigator
in the
Intel Advisor
Standalone
GUI.
View the data in the Result tab to help you choose the best places to add parallelism. There is one result for each project or each project in the Solution (on Windows* OS). If you run an
Intel Advisor
tool on the same project, any previously collected results are overwritten.

Result Locations

The
Intel Advisor
saves results in the
Results
directory in a solution directory on Windows OS (the default Microsoft Visual Studio* location) or a subdirectory of the specified
Intel Advisor
project location in the Project Navigator on Linux* OS. You can specify a custom location for saving results.

Results and the Solution Explorer

You can view results associated with a project in the
Solution Explorer
in Visual Studio or the
Project Navigator
in the
Intel Advisor
GUI.
However, sometimes other considerations outweigh accessibility. For example, in Visual Studio, do not display results in the
Solution Explorer
if you use a source code control system and you do not want to check in your
Solution Explorer
with embedded results.

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.
