Assertion for "w->l->throttle_countdown != 0"

Assertion for "w->l->throttle_countdown != 0"


I was running a cilk-enabled program on my 64-bit Windows-7 system and hit this error:
.\\sched.c:1185: cilk assertion failed: w->l->throttle_countdown != 0

The processor is an i7-2720QM (quad-core with hyperthreading = up to 8 threads).

The process was only using about 1GB RAM, and is compiled for intel64 anyway, so memory shouldn't be a factor here (in the past I was getting assertions due to running out of memory for 32-bit apps).

Any ideas what this means or how to fix it?

I'm compiling with Intel C++ Intel 64 Compiler XE for applications running on Intel 64, Version Build 20110427.

thanks very much,
Daniel Faken

Thiswas fixed in12.0.5. The throttle countdown was an attempt to improve the performance ofcode that enters/leaves Cilk quickly. In the Update 5 release we reworked the code to avoid the cache thrashing at the root of the problem.

Thank you, Barry!
