Annotation Report, Task Row

A task row shows the source location of the task annotation and the label of the task. A task identifies time-consuming code whose work can be efficiently done by multiple cores.

To view the source code for this task annotation, click the icon.

When the task is translated to parallel code and you remove or comment out the task annotation(s), this entry is removed from the table.

There are two types of task annotations. If the loop code changes, you can modify the type of task annotation .

When to View the Annotation Report

Use the Annotation Report window to view the types of annotations present in your project sources and access their locations. You can view the Annotation Report at any time to check the annotations. In addition:

  • Intel recommends that you view annotations during Adding Parallelism to Your Program workflow step to help you locate site, task, lock, and other annotations that should be replaced by parallel framework code.

  • When using the Intel Advisor product GUI, you can use this report to verify that the correct sources have been defined in the Project Properties > Source Search tab.
