Testing the OpenMP Synchronization Code

After you have added OpenMP synchronization code (such as locks, critical sections, or atomic operations), but before adding the constructs that cause the program to use parallel execution, you should test your serial program. The synchronization code may introduce problems if you have inadvertently used a non-recursive mutex in a recursive context, or if your edits accidentally changed some other piece of program behavior.

Special-purpose Annotations

All Intel Advisor special-purpose annotations are recognized by the Dependencies tool, which observes memory accesses in great detail. Some of these annotations prevent the Dependencies tool from reporting all or specific data sharing problems, while one (Observe Uses of Storage) provides more detail about memory accesses.
