Window: Vectorization Summary

After running the
Vectorization and Code Insights
, consider reviewing a results summary that includes the most important information about your code. Click the
tab after running an analysis to view results.

Program Metrics Pane

View the main performance metrics of your program, such as execution time statistics, vector instruction set (and whether extensions, such as VNNI, are used), and number of CPU threads utilized. The section is broken down into several sub-sections:
  • Performance characteristics
    : View execution time details, such as total CPU time and time spent in vectorized and scalar code.
    If your application uses Intel® oneAPI Math Kernel Library (oneMKL), you will see the
    MKL detail
    button in the
    Performance characteristics
    section, which toggles two additional columns: the
    column, which reports time spent in your code and corresponding compute metrics, and the
    column, which reports time spent in the oneMKL code and corresponding compute metrics.
  • Vectorization Gain/Efficiency
    : View average estimated speedup of vectorized loops and total estimated program speedup.
    The vectorization efficiency data is available only for vectorized loops.
  • OP/S and Bandwidth
    : View GFLOPS and GINTOPS usage and cache bandwidth metrics compared to hardware peak. Hover the mouse over the
    column and click the button to select single-core or multicore benchmarks utilization metrics.
    The OP/S and bandwidth metrics are available after you run the Trip Counts and FLOP or the Roofline analysis.

Per Program Recommendations Pane

View suggested changes for your program that you might want to apply to achieve better performance.

Top Time-consuming Loops Pane

View top five time-consuming loops sorted by
self time
with performance metrics, such as execution time statistics and vectorization efficiency with comparison to original scalar loop efficiency.

Refinement Analysis Data Pane

View details about found dependencies and memory access patterns.
column summarizes the predicted data sharing problems collected by the Dependencies tool. To display the
Dependencies Report
window at the corresponding parallel site location, click a function link in the
Site Location
Strides Distribution
column reports the memory access stride distribution within a loop in the ratio format in %: unit strides, constant strides, and variable strides.
The information in the
Refinement analysis data
section is available only after you run the Memory Access Patterns or Dependencies analysis.

Recommendations Pane

View suggested changes with high confidence level for first five loops in the code that you might want to apply to achieve better performance. Click a recommendation link to access the recommendations texts.

Collection Details Pane

View execution statistics for each of the collectors, as well as the
Collection Log
Application Output
, and
Collection Command Line
links that lead to the corresponding report logs, command line and output details.
Application Output
is available if you set output destination to Application Output window. To do this, go to
Application Output Destination
and choose
Application Output window

Platform Information Pane

View the system information including software and hardware summary.
