I’m fairly new to this subject so please be kind if I have misunderstood something.
I’m comparing two stategies of implementation. The first implementation is fetching data as plain integers while the other fetches data from a datastructure, which I have implemented myself.
I want to predict the overhead of my data structure in terms of instructions. The functions handeling the datastructure is called 6 bio. times but when I profile my code the profiler tells me that the difference between the two implementations is only 30k instructions - I would have expected this number to somewhat higher.
To investigate this I want to examine the instructions generated from the functions handeling the data structure i.e. the ptx-code.
I have tried all sorts of compiler flags but can’t seem to get the ptx-code from my implementation. I do get ptx-files but they are rather empty.
I’m running VS2010 on windows 7.
