New features for Intel® Advisor XE 2015

advisor use with msvc++ or gcc/gfortran/g++ Windows

Advisor (beta update 2) seems to report reliably on gcc/gfortran/g++ loop vectorization and use of AVX/FMA, even on Windows, but doesn't display source code on Windows.

With MSVC++, Advisor displays source code correctly, but doesn't report vectorization (which occurs on about 50% of for loops which ICL or g++ can vectorize effectively).  In my examples, MSVC++ invariably chooses AVX-128 (possibly to avoid alignment analysis).  It does occasionally vectorize with AVX where it would not with SSE2.

inefficient remainder report

I looked into some of these reports.  It seems that it means simply that at least 25% of the samples fell in the remainder loop (for an Intel compilation with vectorization).   I looked into one with VTune and that sampling looked more believable, with a few samples falling in the vector remainder loop and none in the scalar remainder where Advisor complained.  Is a method needed to give Advisor better granularity for short runs or runs with time distributed over many vectorized loops?

windows 10 results directory inaccessible

When I attempt to run Advisor 2016 update 2, it creates a subfolder results directory hs000 with no permissions.  Even if I run as administrator, Advisor fails due to inability to write into this folder.  In the file system browser there are no read permissions and security tab will not allow changing this.

broken advisor beta installation

If I try to install advisor beta update 1 or 2, the install fails and rolls back, saying that advisor version is already installed.  I don't know where to look for documentation on what is required to install it.  I believe all components of psxe will install if I remove advisor from the list.

When I last had Advisor installed, it reported as update 2 but had the reported faults of update 1 (inability to recognize vectorization in beta compilation).

No SITE annotations were encountered ?

Dear All,

I have just installed parallel studio 2016 and trying to use memory access pattern analysis with intel advisor. I have added annotation to source file like:

ANNOTATE_SITE_BEGIN(read_phase1);
for (int i=0; i < nt.n_presyn; ++i) {

 ANNOTATE_ITERATION_TASK(read_task);
 .........
}
 ANNOTATE_SITE_END();

When I run the analysis with advisor I get:

The Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016 Beta program is now available!

 

Dear Developer,

The Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016 Beta program is now available. In this beta test, you will have early access to Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016 products and the opportunity to provide feedback to help make our products better.  Registration is easy through the Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016 Pre-Beta Survey.

This suite of products brings together exciting new technologies along with improvements to Intel’s existing software development tools:

Severe (157): Program Exception - access violation

When I try to run any of the 3 analyses available in Advisor 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.

Open Advisor XE 2013 GUI project in Visual Studio?

I am on Advisor XE 2013 using Fortran as the language. I am also using Visual Studio 2012.

When I attempted to open the Advisor Workflow window in VS, the window hung. So, I setup my project in the Advisor GUI instead.

Is there a way that I can open the project I created in the Advisor GUI in VS without recreating it or do I have to keep using the Advisor GUI project?

Thanks.
