Troubleshooting No Data


A message appears when you click the Survey Report, Suitability Report, or the Dependencies Report button and you have not yet run these tools for the currently selected startup project.

This message also appears if Intel Advisor annotations were not executed by the Suitability or Dependencies tools. When using the Intel Advisor GUI, this message may appear if the Suitability or Dependencies tools could not find the source files using the specified project properties.

To help you add annotations to your sources, the No Data message is accompanied by the annotation assistant pane.


After you run the Intel Advisor Suitability or Dependencies tools, the data collected populates the corresponding Suitability Report and Dependencies Report window, and the list of annotations displayed in the Annotation Report window is updated.

To use the Suitability or Dependencies tools, your startup project must execute Intel Advisor parallel site and task annotations.

When using the Intel Advisor GUI, this message also appears when the specified project properties do not provide a correct path to the source location(s).

In certain cases, this message can appear with the Survey tool if your target executes quickly and you clicked the Started Paused button (or equivalent option or Pause Collection annotation) the side command toolbar; in this case, click Collect Survey Data instead. That is, you paused data collection so that data collection did not start until after the target's execution completed .

Possible Correction Strategies

  • Use the Advisor Workflow tab to guide you through the steps needed to run these tools, which analyze your running program.

  • If you selected the wrong startup project, select and build the correct startup project and run the tool again.

  • If your startup project did not execute Intel Advisor annotations, make sure you have added parallel site and task annotations to your program and that they get executed when you run the startup project target executable.

  • When using the Intel Advisor GUI, open the project and then open Project Properties dialog box. After checking that the path and target file name of the Application is correct in the Analysis Target tab, click the Source Search tab. Insert one or more new rows to specify the path to the source location(s). In this case, you do not need to rebuild your application.
