Ihave some questoins on Parallel Advisor 2013.

1. When you are doing a survey run can you write the rpeort at the same time? Must it always be wriiten after the initial run completes?

Is there a command that will look at your code (maybe a survey command)

and recommend a parallel framework?  Either cilk, tbb or OpenMP?

3. Where are the tutorials for Parallel Advisor  2013?

4. Is there a way to check for false-sharing?

Any help appreciated. thanks in advance.

Hello Newport_j,

>> Ihave some questoins on Parallel Advisor 2013.

The product name is actually Intel(R) Advisor XE 2013.

>> 1. When you are doing a survey run can you write the rpeort at the same time? Must it always be wriiten after the initial run completes?

I am not sure what "report" you are referring to here. Please elaborate.

>> Is there a command that will look at your code (maybe a survey command) and recommend a parallel framework? Either cilk, tbb or OpenMP?

Not presently. Sorry.

>> 3. Where are the tutorials for Parallel Advisor 2013?

The tutorials are available in the following directory on Linux* OSes:
Windows* : C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Advisor XE 2013\documentation\en\tutorials
Linux* : /opt/intel/advisor_xe/documentation/en/tutorials/index.htm

>> 4. Is there a way to check for false-sharing?

Not presently. Sorry. Please post any questions related to false-sharing on the Intel(R) VTune(TM) Amplifier XE 2013 forum as it is likely that you may find a way to check for false-sharing using that tool.

Please let me know if I can help further.

Thank you.

1. When you are doing a survey run can you write the rpeort at the same time? Must it always be wriiten after the initial run completes?

I just want to get a good clean run and save it in an output file in a separate directory. I cannot find any command in the instructions that shows me by example how to do that.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Newport_j,

Intel(R) Advisor XE uses a single results directory into results from the various Advisor XE workflow steps are stored into in an integrated fashion. If you wish to save the results of a given run, please specify a project directory with the command line option "--project-dir" and then simply copy the project directory to a different name to save the current state of the results. This link provides more details:

I am also curious why you would like to save the clean run to an output file in a separate directory given that you can always report/view the survey results.

Please let me know if I can help further.

Thank you.
