I am reading an ascii file with Intel Fortran opened as:
open(10, file=trim(file_name), status='old', action='read', iostat=ierr, iomsg=msg)
To skip some file lines which I do not want to store I am using read() with no I/O list:
VTune reports 53 GB allocated at the read() with no I/O list:
Is that memory really allocated or is it that VTune incorrectly identifies memory allocation? What causes this behaviour?
No, there is not 53+GB of virtual memory being allocated at that point. The read with no I/O list likely allocates no memory at all.(I am a former Intel Fortran compiler developer.)
