Troubleshooting No Data

Symptoms

A message appears when you click the Survey Report, Suitability Report, or the Correctness Report button and you have not yet run these tools for the currently selected project.

This message also appears if Intel Advisor annotations were not executed by the Suitability or Correctness tools. When using the Intel Advisor GUI, this message may appear if the Suitability or Correctness tools could not find the source files using the specified project properties.

To help you add annotations to your sources, the No Data message is accompanied by the annotation assistant pane (see Copying Annotations and Build Settings Using the Annotation Assistant Pane).

Details

After you run the Intel Advisor Suitability or Correctness tools, the data collected populates the corresponding Suitability Report and Correctness Report window, and the list of annotations displayed in the Annotation Report window is updated.

To use the Suitability or Correctness tools, your project must execute Intel Advisor parallel site and task annotations.

When using the Intel Advisor GUI, this message also appears when the specified project properties do not provide a correct path to the source location(s).

In certain cases, this message can appear with the Survey tool if your target executes quickly and you clicked the Started Paused button (or equivalent option or Pause Collection annotation) the side command toolbar; in this case, click Collect Survey Data instead. That is, you paused data collection so that data collection did not start until after the target's execution completed .

Possible Correction Strategies

  • Use the Advisor XE Workflow tab to guide you through the steps needed to run these tools, which analyze your running program.

  • If your project did not execute Intel Advisor annotations, make sure you have added parallel site and task annotations to your program and that they get executed when you run the target executable - see the help topic About Annotations.

  • When using the Intel Advisor GUI, open the project and then open Project Properties dialog box. After checking that the path and target file name of the Application is correct in the Analysis Target tab, click the Source Search tab. Insert one or more new rows to specify the path to the source location(s). In this case, you do not need to rebuild your application.
