Intel Advisor, an integral part of Intel Parallel Studio XE 2017, can help identify portions of code that could be good candidates for parallelization (both vectorization and threading). It can also help determine when it might not be appropriate to parallelize a section of code, depending on the platform, processor, and configuration it’s running on. Intel Advisor Roofline Analysis reveals the gap between an application’s performance and its expected performance.
Discovering where the performance bottlenecks are and knowing what to do about it can be a mysterious and complex art, needing some very sophisticated performance analysis tools for success. That’s where Intel® VTune™ Amplifier XE 2017, part of Intel Parallel Studio XE, comes in.
