Hi,


This issue is fixed in the latest VTune release (2021.2.0). Can you please check if you are getting the proper value for "Effective Logical Core Utilization" in the latest VTune release?


Regards,

Johny.

Hi,


Thank you for posting in Intel VTune Forum.

Could you please share the application and steps to reproduce this issue ?


Thanks in advance,

Raeesa

I won't be giving you my app. I am just running the performance snapshot on a process that uses all threads on a dual 22 core system. So 88 threads all busy. 

I don't know if this is related but resource monitor thinks I am running at 126% of max frequency and hence 126% cpu usage. I haven't done anything to change the frequency.

Processor info:

Processor Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2699 v4 @ 2.20GHz, 2201 Mhz, 22 Core(s), 44 Logical Processor(s)

Hi,


Could you please try running the analysis on a latest Intel Hardware and check if the core utilization is still showing a strange value.

We couldn’t open the result file you shared in VTune. Please attach the entire result folder as zip again.

I don't understand what you mean by latest Intel h/w. Intel doesn't have a product I want to buy currently.

I tried doing a similar analysis (though I have different code running) on an 6258R and I don't see the problem.

I attach the compressed directory of a new run.
