Troubleshooting No Symbolic Information


In the
window, the
Intel Inspector
displays no source code for any code locations in the problem set.


Intel Inspector
cannot display source code for viewing and editing unless the application has symbols available.
If the
Intel Inspector
detects no symbols for a location, it sets the call stack and code pane to the first location where it can find symbols.
If the
Intel Inspector
cannot find any location in the call stack with symbols, it provides the module name and relative virtual address (RVA) for the location.

Possible Correction Strategies

  • When you compile and link an application on Windows* systems:
    • Enable the debug information compiler option.
    • Set the linker option to generate debug information.
  • Configure the project to search non-standard directories.
  • Copy the symbol files, such as
    files, to a location where the
    Intel Inspector
    can find them.

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.
