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!

It is a common use case for high performance, parallel and vectorized code to be run on dedicated remote systems like clusters with strict time schedules and limited capabilities for visualization and data manipulation. Tools for performance assessment are often limited to running from the command line, and many conveniences like GUI interfaces and access to online documentation resources are often unavailable on these types of systems.

For medium-large targets, several methods are available to minimize the amount of data collected and target execution time. Minimizing the data collected reduces the amount of data you need to examine in the Intel® Advisor Memory Access Patterns Report; it also reduces the size of the generated result. To minimize execution time with the Memory Access Patterns tool, consider reducing the data set processed by the application.
Selecting the Target Application Precisely
When choosing tasks, you should consider task interactions and the factors that influence how large a task should be. The following sections describe the process of choosing the tasks.
When you add annotations to your C/C++ source files, you also need to include the Intel Advisor annotation header file advisor-annotate.h in those files. Use the code editor to type the line or use the context menu item to add a #include directive.
To include the annotations C/C++ header file, specify one of the following forms listed below:
