Annotation Report, User Memory Deallocator Use Row

This row shows a source location where memory is being freed using a non-standard or user-defined memory deallocation. The Dependencies tool uses this as a hint about the lifetime of memory accesses, so memory that is freed and then allocated again will not cause conflicts to be reported if the non-standard or user-defined memory free occurs with the span of this annotation's execution.

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

When translating annotations to parallel code, this special-purpose record_deallocation annotation can be removed or commented out.

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.
