"Intel® VTune™ Amplifier helped us identify system performance issues by analyzing and displaying CPU utilization, cache misses, and more across multiple processors and server products. We optimized our product based on this analysis, improving overall performance by 12 percent on key workloads. Intel VTune Amplifier was invaluable in quickly identifying the optimization opportunities in our product."
Solution Integration, Server Product Business Unit
"We are excited about the 2nd generation Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor (also known as Knights Landing). We very quickly prototyped our core algorithm and obtained performance considerably higher than with any other processor architecture. The Intel® C++ Compiler exploited vectorization opportunities, and Intel® VTune™ Amplifier quickly identified a threading bottleneck that was simple to fix. Porting and tuning the kernel for the Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor was quick and efficient."
Senior Staff Engineer R&D, Silicon Engineering Group
"We achieved a significant improvement (almost 2x) even on one core by optimizing the code based on the information provided by Intel® VTune™ Amplifier XE. Good scalability is a result of usage of combination of Intel® TBB and OpenMP parallelization techniques. We achieved over 8x the performance of the previous version on 8 cores and almost 11x the performance on 16 cores."

"Intel® VTune™ Amplifier XE analyzes complex code and helps us identify bottlenecks rapidly. By using it and other Intel® Software Development Tools, we were able to improve PIPESIM performance up to 10 times compared with the previous software version."
“The new VTune™ Amplifier XE brings even more capability to an already indispensable tool. The sampling based call stack hotspots is excellent and alone is worthy of the upgrade. We have also been impressed by how the concurrency and Locks and Waits analysis can even provide useful data on complex applications such as Premiere Pro.”

"Simple performance bottlenecks can remain hidden until you look for them with a good profiler. Case in point, when the LNCC HPC team analyzed the radiation scheme driver for BRAMS with the Intel® VTune™ Amplifier performance profiler, it helped us to detect redundant array initializations inside a loop. Moving these before the beginning of the loop made the driver nearly 1,500X faster than before. Using the optimized version of the driver, we obtained approximately a 19% overall runtime reduction for BRAMS, an important reduction for the forecast runtime. The next step for the LNCC HPC team is to use Intel® Advisor to identify regions for vectorization optimization."
