Recent Advisor problems may be caused by PIN

Lately, we have been getting many reports of problems with the analysis tools (Inspector, Advisor, and VTune Amplifier) caused by a problem with PIN, the tool they use to instrument software.

PIN problems can produce several types of error. One of the more common ones is
__bionic_open_tzdata_path: PIN_CRT_TZDATA not set!

If you believe you may be affected, please see this article for more information.

pin.exe The NTDLL!NtMapViewOfSection function jumps out of NTDLL

We are having a problem running Advisor, following advise found elsewhere we are trying to run this command to prove pin.exe works and getting the error below. Can anyone offer some assistance on how we go about resolving this. This is Parallel Studio XE 2018 on Windows 7 with VS2017.

thanks

DLL / No source code shown

Hi, we have a DLL project, which is used from an interpreter via an FFI. I compile the DLL with release options and added the /Zi and /DEBUG. So I get a .pdb file for the DLL. The DLL is compiled via a VS project using ICL. The sources are distributed over several directories, but of course, all are in the same VS project.

I pointed IA's symbol path to the PDB file. And I added the root where all our sources are.

How to analyze MKL code using Intel® Advisor 2018

Introduction

Vectorization Advisor is a vectorization optimization tool that lets you identify loops that will benefit most from vectorization, identify what is blocking effective vectorization, explore the benefit of alternative data reorganizations, and increase the confidence that vectorization is safe.

    Power Consumption for multiplying two 64 bit numbers

     

    Can anyone help me to find the power consumed in an ( i7-6700 CPU@3.4 GHz, 4 cores, 8 logical processors) while multiplying two 64 bit numbers and adding two 64 bit numbers?

    Is there any specific document/link where I can find that ?

    Also what is the process to compute the number of clock cycles it takes for multiplying two 64 bit numbers?  I used rdtsc subroutine to get the time stamp before and after the multiplication, and then subtract them. Is it the correct way to do ? Please advise! 

    Thanks 

     

    Improve Performance Using Vectorization and Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors

    Introduction

    Modern CPUs include different levels of parallelism. High-performance software needs to take advantage of all opportunities for parallelism in order to fully benefit from modern hardware. These opportunities include vectorization, multithreading, memory optimization, and more.

    Introduction

    Intel® Advisor provides two analysis workflows to ensure that C, C++, and Fortran applications make the most of today's processor architectures: a Vectorization Workflow and a Threading Workflow.

    Vectorization Workflow: This workflow lets you identify loops that will benefit most from vectorization, identify issues preventing vectorization, estimate the benefit of alternative data reorganizations, and analyze instruction mix in the application.
