Originally posted by: bpurnomo This tool can be used to analyze OpenCL kernels without requiring any GPU in the machine.
When running the tool on a system with a NVidia card compiling an OpenCL kernel results in the following output:
OpenCL Compile Error: clCreateContextFromType failed (CL_INVALID_VALUE).
This is with the NVidia System32/OpenCL.dll removed prior to installing the ATI Stream SDK.
Switching to my onboard ATI X1200 fixes the problem and then the tool runs fine.
Are there any plans for tools that run under Linux?
Thanks for the Kernel Analyzer it is helpful but I still want to address several point it should have on next version:
-Specify the best and/or maximum workgroup size for the kernel targeted to specific device (i.e. 5870, 5770...)
-A better help document. It is really hard to know the meaning of the output of the tool (i.e. ALU:Fetch, min, max...) from the help document. I really don't know what does the ALU:Fetch mean. And also what the different between "filtering points"? What is the filtering point?
