I am a new user of PAPI. I am now trying to use PAPI to measure the FLOPs of my code. Unfortunately,
all of my available resources are based on Intel Sandy Bridge.
What I learn from here (http://icl.cs.utk.edu/projects/papi/wik ... SandyFlops) is that the
FLOPs counts of PAPI on Intel Sandy Bridge have serious overcounting problem and thus I cannot use the
FLOPs counts and rates of PAPI as an absolute measure of the amount of work done.
My question is will this FLOPs overcounting problem on Intel Sandy Bridge be fixed in future versions of PAPI?
Is there an approximate date? I think this problem is still not solved in PAPI 5.3.
Or is there any other way to accurately measure the FLOPs on Intel Sandy Bridge? Now I can only rely on manually
Many thanks! I truly appreciate your reply.
