- Finding programming mistakes in the application. They include potential portability problems and violations of the MPI standard, which do not immediately cause problems, but might when switching to different hardware or a different MPI implementation. In this case you are recommended to perform correctness checking interactively on a smaller development cluster, but you can also include it in automated regression testing.
- Detecting errors in the execution environment. In this case use the hardware and software stack on the system that is to be checked.
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.
