Using Custom Library Tool for Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives

With the Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel® IPP) Custom Library Tool, you can build your own dynamic library containing only the Intel IPP functionality that is necessary for your application.

The use of custom libraries built with the Custom Library Tool provides the following advantages:

  • Package size. Your package may have much smaller size if linked with a custom library because standard dynamic libraries additionally contain all optimized versions of Intel IPP functions and a dispatcher. The following table compares the contents and size of packages for an end-user application linked with a custom dynamic library and an application linked with the standard Intel IPP dynamic libraries:

    Application linked with custom DLL

    Application linked with Intel IPP dynamic libraries

    ipp_test_app.exe (for Windows*) or ipp_test_app (for Linux* OS and macOS*)

    ipp_custom_{dll|so}.{dll|so|dylib}

    ipp_test_app.exe (for Windows*) or ipp_test_app (for Linux* OS and macOS*)

    ippi.{dll|so|dylib}

    ippig9.{dll|so|dylib}

    ippih9.{dll|so|dylib}

    ippip8.{dll|so|dylib}

    ippipx.{dll|so|dylib}

    ippis8.{dll|so|dylib}

    ippiw7.{dll|so|dylib}

    ipps.{dll|so|dylib}

    ippsg9.{dll|so|dylib}

    ippsh9.{dll|so|dylib}

    ippsp8.{dll|so|dylib}

    ippspx.{dll|so|dylib}

    ippss8.{dll|so|dylib}

    ippsw7.{dll|so|dylib}

    ippcore.{dll|so|dylib}

    Package size: 0.1 Mb

    Package size: 121.5 Mb

  • Smooth transition to a higher version of Intel IPP. You can easily build the same custom dynamic library from a higher version of Intel IPP and substitute the libraries in your application without relinking.

Note

The current Python* version of the Intel IPP Custom Library Tool supports the host-host configuration only, the host-target configuration is currently not supported.
