Learn What to Do Next with Intel VTune Amplifier Application Performance Snapshot

Tuning code has, for a long time, been an art. Knowing what to look for and how to correct inefficiencies in serious numerical computations has not been easy for most programmers. It’s often hard to even know which tool to start with. Which is why the Intel® VTune™ Amplifier Application Performance Snapshot could prove to be a great way to get an instant summary of an application’s performance characteristics and issues.

Optimization Through Profiling

Through profiling, developers and users can get ideas on where an application’s hotspots are, in order to optimize certain sections of the code. In addition to locating where time is spent within an application, profiling tools can locate where there is little or no parallelism and a number of other factors that may affect performance. Performance tuning can help tremendously in many cases.
