Intel® Parallel Advisor 2011 Update 3 Released

Intel® Parallel Advisor 2011 (Advisor) guides developers to add parallelism to their existing C/C++ programs. The developer uses Advisor to: find the most time-consuming serial code regions in their program, insert Advisor annotations to identify these as parallel code regions, predict approximate performance characteristics of the proposed parallel code regions, and check for problems that would prevent the application from working correctly when parallelized.
