Introduction

Intel® Trace Analyzer is a graphical tool that displays and analyzes event trace data generated by Intel® Trace Collector. Intel® Trace Analyzer helps you understand the application behavior, detect performance problems and programming errors.

The tool uses trace files .stf as input, which contain the trace data of an MPI application. For instructions on how to generate trace files, see the Intel® Trace Collector User and Reference Guide.
