Enable/disable user selection as a way to control loops/functions identified for deeper analysis.





On (mark-up)

Actions Modified




Intel Advisor offers two ways to identify loops/functions for deeper analysis:

  • Source annotations - Via code that pinpoints the start and end of loops and iterations

    This is the only identification method for the Suitability analysis.

  • User selection - In the CLI via mark-up-loops and mark-up-list, and in the GUI via Survey >

    This is the primary identification method for Vectorization Advisor analyses.

    User selection via mark-up-loops and Survey > persists for downstream analyses. User selection via mark-up-list persists only for the duration of a collect action.

Use mark-up to use both ways to identify loops/functions for deeper analysis. Use no-mark-up to use only source annotations.


There is no clear selection option in the Intel Advisor CLI. no-mark-up is the closest equivalent if user-selected loops/functions persist but you want to use only source annotations to identify loops/functions for deeper analysis.


Run a Memory Access Patterns analysis. Analyze only loops/functions identified by source annotations.

advisor --collect=map --no-mark-up --project-dir=./advi_results -- ./myApplication
