Key Terms

 The following terms are used throughout this tutorial:
Configuration file:
A file that contains a set of configuration parameters for the Intel® Trace Collector. It is a plain ASCII file containing a number of directives, one per line. Each directive consists of an identifier followed by arguments.
Event timeline:
A chart that displays individual process activities over time. Horizontal bars represent the processes with the functions called in these processes. The bars consist of colored rectangles labeled with the function names. Black lines indicate messages sent between processes. These lines connect sending and receiving processes. Blue lines represent collective operations, such as broadcast or reduce operations.
Function profile:
A chart that provides detailed profiling information on the performance data. The Function Profile consists of four tabs:
Flat Profile
Load Balance
Call Tree
Call Graph
. These tabs use the same column headers and the same raw data.

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.
