Intel® Advisor

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.
