IntelĀ® Advisor XE

Threading design and prototyping tool for software architects

  • Analyze, design, tune and check your threading design before implementation
  • Explore and test threading options without disrupting normal development
  • Predict threading errors & performance scaling on systems with more cores

Data Driven Threading Design

Intel® Advisor XE is a threading prototyping tool for C, C++, C# and Fortran software architects. Quickly model and compare the performance scaling of different parallel designs without the cost and disruption of implementation. Find and eliminate data sharing issues during design when they are less expensive to fix. Model the performance impact of any added synchronization and project the scaling on systems with larger core counts.

Intel Advisor XE's suitability analysis gives you a performance estimate before you invest significant effort in implementation. Implement only the options that have a high return on investment.

  • Profiling identifies where an application will benefit most from parallelism.
  • Compare the effort and benefit of alternatives before you invest in implementation.
  • Guides resolution of key data conflicts. Assists in adding synchronization.
  • Accelerate your application: Vectorization made easy with Intel® Advisor XE.
