Intel Advisor is a powerful tool for tracking down and solving vectorization problems. This hands-on demo will introduce Intel Advisor and especially the survey and the trip count analyses. And we will be able to track all the performance issues of the previous introduced N-body simulation code. We will explain how to read and interpret Advisor's outputs to improve the vectorization and introduce the roofline analysis.
The session will cover Intel Advisor.
