Profile and Add Annotations

This is the initial step to use the parallel design capabilities provided by the Intel® Advisor. The following diagram shows the first few steps in the Intel Advisor workflow, where you use the Survey tool to discover possible places to add parallelism and mark those serial code regions with Intel Advisor annotations. Two additional parts of this tutorial describe the rest of the workflow steps.

First part of the full Intel Advisor Workflow

Step 1: Unpack Sample and Prepare Target Program for Survey tool analysis

Do one of the following:

Step 2: Discover Parallel Opportunities -Profile Using the Survey Tool

Step 3: Choose and Mark the Best Parallel Opportunities

By inserting Intel Advisor annotations, the Intel Advisor Suitability and Correctness tools can predict your application's parallel behavior.
