The View window toolbar provides you with easy access to the Intel® Trace Analyzer functionality that is most often used during trace analysis.
The following functionality is available from the toolbar:
Option:
Description:
Intel® Trace Analyzer  
Summary Page
Open the
Summary Page
to get summary information on the time your application spent in MPI
Intel® Trace Analyzer  
Tracefile Info
Open
Tracefile Info
to display information about the opened trace
Intel® Trace Analyzer  
Time Scale
Show Time Scale along the top of all the Timelines. You can enable the Time Scale only if there is at least one timeline opened.
Intel® Trace Analyzer  
Time Interval Selection
Open
Select Time Interval
to select a new time interval for the whole View.
To the right of the
Time Interval Selection
button you can see the data cell that demonstrates the selected time interval in the format:
<start>
,
<end>
:
<duration>
.
Time Units
Switch time units from seconds to ticks and vice versa.
Intel® Trace Analyzer  
Process Aggregation
Open
Process Aggregation
to select the process group for aggregation or create new process groups in addition to those provided by default.
The data cell to the right of the
Process Aggregation
button shows the currently selected process group. By default, it is All_Processes.
Intel® Trace Analyzer  
Function Aggregation
Open the
Function Aggregation
dialog box and choose a function group for aggregation.
The data cell to the right of the
Function Aggregation
button shows the currently selected function group. By default, it is Major Function Groups.
Intel® Trace Analyzer  
Tagging
Open
Tagging
to identify messages and collective operations to highlight.
Intel Trace Analyzer displays the tagged messages and collective operations in bold.
Intel® Trace Analyzer  
Filtering
Open
Filtering
to select events, messages and collective operations to be filtered. After you set a filter, the Trace Analyzer only displays the data that meets the conditions of the filter operation.
Intel® Trace Analyzer  
Idealization
Open the
Idealization
to produce an ideal trace.
Intel® Trace Analyzer  
Compare Traces
Open the
Comparison View
to calculate the exact differences and speedups between two runs or within two ranges of the same run.
Intel® Trace Analyzer  
Imbalance Diagram
Compare the trace with its idealized one. The Imbalance Diagram helps to understand the application imbalance and estimate a potential application speedup from tuning MPI implementation and/or network upgrades.
Intel® Trace Analyzer  
Performance Assistant
Use the Performance Assistant tool to discover performance problems of your application.
Intel® Trace Analyzer  
Color Editor
Edit the colors of functions and function groups.
Intel® Trace Analyzer  
Preferences
Open the
Preferences
to customize your working environment.

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.
