Adding
Annotations into Your Source Code

You
can add
Intel® Advisor
annotations in your source code by:
  • Copying annotations with the annotation assistant in the
    Survey Report
    window,
    Survey Source
    window, or the
    No Data
    message. Use the annotation assistant to copy the main annotations for parallel sites, tasks, and locks. For example, the annotation assistant appears in the lower part of the
    Survey Report
    window in the
    Assistance
    tab.
  • On Windows* OS only
    : When using the Visual Studio* code editor, you can use the Annotation Wizard to select an annotation type and add the annotations and their arguments into your code. You can use the Annotation Wizard to add parallel site, task, lock, pause/resume data collection, and special-purpose annotations.
If your sources include huge source files that contain annotations, be aware that only the first 8 MB of each file will be parsed for annotations. If not all of your annotations are being parsed in such huge source files, consider breaking each huge source file into several source files.

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.
