Algorithm Group

The analyses in the
group target software tuning. They help you understand where your application spends the most time. You can also analyze the efficiency of your algorithms.
The Algorithm group includes these analysis types:
  • Hotspots focuses on a particular target, identifies functions that took the most CPU time to execute, restores the call tree for each function, and shows thread activity.
  • Anomaly Detection analysis helps you identify performance anomalies in frequently recurring intervals of code like loop iterations.

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.
