We are proud to announce that Intel Performance Counter Monitor V2.3 (Intel PCM) has been released with the following changes:

  • Support of Apple Mac OS X 10.7 ("Lion") and OS X 10.8 ("Mountain Lion")
  • Support of FreeBSD
  • new tool for monitoring memory traffic per channel on Intel Xeon processor E5 product family.

With that Intel PCM now supports Linux, Windows (XP, 7, 8 Desktop Mode), FreeBSD and MacOS.

Intel® Performance Counter Monitor (Intel® PCM) is an API and a set of tools that should help developers to understand how their applications utilize the underlying compute platform. In this blog I will explain how to instrument the well-known STREAM benchmark with library functions of Intel® PCM reading statistics directly from integrated memory controllers available on the latest Intel® Xeon® 5500, 5600, 7500 and Core™ processor series.
