Quick question, how come there are less tools for OS X than Linux?
Eg how come there isn't any performance profiling for OS X whereas there is a VTune for Windows, Linux - seems strange that OS X isn't similarly catered for
Are there any third party tools that support ifort?
Apple controls the OS, and is well known for not divulging information needed for third party software to function on its products. See this recent announcement from Intel about V-Tune: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/whats-new-intel-vtune-amplifier-xe-2015#macsupport, where it says Note: performance profiling on Mac computers is not available.
I *think* you can use the instrumentation included with Xcode to do some profiling… The suite of tools is called instruments. I’ve only ever used it to look for memory leaks—I’ve never tried profiling.
