Intel® Parallel Advisor

broken advisor beta installation

If I try to install advisor beta update 1 or 2, the install fails and rolls back, saying that advisor version is already installed.  I don't know where to look for documentation on what is required to install it.  I believe all components of psxe will install if I remove advisor from the list.

When I last had Advisor installed, it reported as update 2 but had the reported faults of update 1 (inability to recognize vectorization in beta compilation).

No SITE annotations were encountered ?

Dear All,

I have just installed parallel studio 2016 and trying to use memory access pattern analysis with intel advisor. I have added annotation to source file like:

for (int i=0; i < nt.n_presyn; ++i) {


When I run the analysis with advisor I get:

The Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016 Beta program is now available!


Dear Developer,

The Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016 Beta program is now available. In this beta test, you will have early access to Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016 products and the opportunity to provide feedback to help make our products better.  Registration is easy through the Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016 Pre-Beta Survey.

This suite of products brings together exciting new technologies along with improvements to Intel’s existing software development tools:

Severe (157): Program Exception - access violation

When I try to run any of the 3 analyses available in Advisor I get the error "Severe (157): Program Exception - access violation" and the line with the call of "omp_get_num_procs" is listed in the console output:

use omp_lib
integer*4 procs
procs = omp_get_num_procs ( )

I double checked that I use following settings in my project: /debug:full, /Od, /check:none, /libs:dll /threads /dbglibs (Debug Multithread DLLs), /Qopenmp.

Open Advisor XE 2013 GUI project in Visual Studio?

I am on Advisor XE 2013 using Fortran as the language. I am also using Visual Studio 2012.

When I attempted to open the Advisor Workflow window in VS, the window hung. So, I setup my project in the Advisor GUI instead.

Is there a way that I can open the project I created in the Advisor GUI in VS without recreating it or do I have to keep using the Advisor GUI project?


ADVISOR_ANNOTATE is not recognized during compilation

Hello to the Advisor team,

I'm compiling and linking my code as following :

      COMPILE='ifort -g -O2 -I$/opt/intel/advisor_xe_2015/include/intel64'

     $COMPILE -c Parcel_Update_8_8.F90

     $COMPILE -o Parcel_Model_Advisor.x *.o -lm -L$/opt/intel/advisor_xe_2015/lib64 -ladvisor

     rm *.o

In the compilation log file I'm getting an error : ''error #7002: Error in opening the compiled module file.  Check INCLUDE paths.   [ADVISOR_ANNOTATE] use advisor_annotate  !  Add to each module that contains Intel Advisor annotations ''

Can I have multiple Advisor Results files within a visual studio project?

I am running Intel Advisor XE 2013 in visual studio. After running Survey analysis, I got multiple locations that can be considered to add parallelism. In order to find where is the best spot, I want to run separate suitability and correctness analysis and compare the performance. I understand that I can add multiple annotation sites and tasks to achieve this if the multiple sites are not in a nested loop. However, if they are in a nested loop, I cannot get independent suitability and correctness reports for these sites.
