Intel Advisor is used early in the process of adding vectorization into your code, or while converting parts of a serial program to a parallel (multithreaded) program. It helps you explore and locate areas in which the optimizations might provide significant benefit. It also helps you predict the costs and benefits of adding vectorization or parallelism to those parts of your program, allowing you to experiment.

To profile and predict (model) your program's behavior upon adding vectorization or threading parallelism, Intel Advisor runs and watches your program as it executes. You use Intel Advisor it in the Intel Advisor GUI environment to observe and analyze your program.

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.
