Inspector crashes when starting analysis with VS2012 debugger

I am working with Inspector XE2015 integrated with Visual Studio 2012.

Inspector has helped me to find uninitialized variable. I want to use debugger in the moment when this error occurs. However when I start Inspector in one of modes "Enable debugger when problem detected" or "Select analysis start location with debugger" all crashes: first the debugged program, then the inspector, and at last the Visual Studio.

What conditions did not I follow to have a success with this matter?

Severe (157): Program Exception - access violation

When I try to run any of the 3 analyses available in Inspector I get the error "Severe (157): Program Exception - access violation" and the line with the call of "omp_get_num_procs" is listed in the console output:

use omp_lib
integer*4 procs
procs = omp_get_num_procs ( )

I double checked that I use following settings in my project: /debug:full, /Od, /check:none, /libs:dll /threads /dbglibs (Debug Multithread DLLs), /Qopenmp.

gfx offload compile error


I am running VS2013 and haven't had any luck getting a simple gfx offload to compile.

the error I am getting is as follows:

gfx_linker: : error : failed to execute 'ld.exe', errno 2

I have been unable to determine what is causing this error.  Any ideas would be helpful.  I have included my code below.


#include "stdafx.h"
#include <cilk\cilk.h>
#include <cilk\common.h>

int main(void)
    float *indata, *outdata;
    int nrows = 512;
    int ncols = 512;

transient files with some prefix?


I'm on Win 8.1 x64 ICC 15.0.3, MSVC 2013.

When I break compilation, sometimes ICC left 4-charactes (readable characters) internal compilation files, they are removed when compilation is unsuccessful.

But when I break it they are left-overs.

This interfere with GIT ignore rules, since it seems their names are randomly-generated.

e.g. when I do report from Amplifier or Inspector, the result directory created is prefixed by letter 'r' (==report?) so I can easily ignore them via configuration of GIT (or possibly other VCS too).

error while loading shared libraries libmpifort.so.12 on MIC


I was trying to run my executable natively on MIC but obtained the following error:

[wzhang80@xpacc-serv-03-mic0 plascomcm]$ ./bin/plascomcm.mic 
./bin/plascomcm.mic: error while loading shared libraries: libmpifort.so.12: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I realized that the runtime libraries should be copied to the MIC cards. I did that and added the location of the library to the PATH:

Hello! I am trying to install "mpss-3.3.3" in my Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS (GNU/Linux 3.13.0-37-generic x86_64) system. I tried several methods, avialable online but at the end this is what i get:

tbbmalloc operator new should check new_handler's before throwing std::bad_alloc

I have an installed new_handler using std::set_new_handler(new_handler), which I would like to be called when tbbmalloc runs out of memory on a call to new or new[]. The current implementation in src/tbbmalloc/proxy.cpp just returns std::bad_alloc if scalable_malloc returns NULL, rather than getting the new_handler if one exists and calling it.

This is an enhancement request for a future version of tbbmalloc.

Intel MKL linpack benchmark gets killed on Xeon Phi

Hi all,

I've got a weird problem: I wanted to test the GLOPS performance of the Xeon Phi's that are entrusted to me: 2 x Xeon Phi 5110P, 1x Xeon Phi 7120 . I read that the linpack benchmark is included in Intel's MKL libs and that a Xeon Phi version is included. So I grabbed the binaries and ran them on my Xeon Phi's.

On the 7120 (with mpss 3.3.2) the benchmark runs fine:

Collecting CPU Time for FLOPS calculation

Hi everyone,

I am trying to estimate the number of FLOP and FLOPS for my application by using hardware EBS running from the command line. I have implemented the  __itt_pause()  and __itt_resume() around my algorithm of interest. I run this command:

C:/Program Files (x86)/Intel/VTune Amplifier XE 2015/bin64/amplxe-cl.exe -collect-with runsa -knob event-config=FP_COMP_OPS_EXE.X87:sa=2000000 -start-paused --result-dir foo application.exe
