Customer Reviews

"Intel Trace Analyzer and Collector for Linux helped to drastically improve the performance of RIKEN's molecular dynamics cluster software. We were able to shorten MPI communication time by half by finding and removing bottlenecks with nonblocking communication patterns. Since Intel Trace Analyzer and Collector can embed instrumentation into the program, we can tell the execution time of each function and its load balance, which enabled us to very easily understand where to optimize. Intel® MPI Library and Intel® Cluster Tools provide us the best cluster development environment."

—Dr. Takhiro Koishi, RIKEN

"Our FEKO* electromagnetics code runs on various parallel environments (e.g., clusters of different sizes, shared memory machines) and utilizes complex numerical algorithms that are nontrivial to parallelize. Intel Trace Analyzer and Collector have proven to be very valuable tools to help understand FEKO parallel communication patterns and consequently in optimizing the message-passing call that result in an extremely well-performing electromagnetics ISV cluster application."

—Dr. Ing Ulrich Jakobus, technical director, EM Software & Systems


Novosibirsk State University boosts its simulation tool’s performance by three times with Intel Parallel Studio, Intel® Advisor, and Intel Trace Analyzer and Collector.

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.
