Requirements for Vectorizable Loops

Vectorization is one of many optimizations that are enabled by default in the latest Intel compilers. In order to be vectorized, loops must obey certain conditions, listed below. Some additional ways to help the compiler to vectorize loops are described.

Granularity and Parallel Performance

One key to attaining good parallel performance is choosing the right granularity for the application. Granularity is the amount of real work in the parallel task. If granularity is too fine, then performance can suffer from communication overhead.
