Checking Your Installation

After installing the
Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL)
, verify that the library is properly installed and configured:
  1. Intel® MKL
    installs in the
    <parent directory>
    directory.
    Check that the subdirectory of
    <parent directory>
    referred to as
    <mkl directory>
    was created.
  2. If you want to keep multiple versions of
    Intel® MKL
    installed on your system, update your build scripts to point to the correct
    Intel® MKL
    version.
  3. Check that the following files appear in the
    <mkl directory>
    /bin
    directory:
    mklvars.sh
    mklvars.csh
    mkl-32.sh
    mkl.csh
    Use
    these files
    to assign
    Intel® MKL
    -specific values to several environment variables, as explained in Setting Environment Variables .
  4. To understand how the
    Intel® MKL
    directories are structured, see .
  5. To make sure that
    Intel® MKL
    runs on your system, launch an
    Intel® MKL
    example, as explained in Using Code Examples .

Product and Performance Information

1

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.
