Thank you for the answer, however, the "compute" function is intended to be compiled in a library, so it cannot be inlined. As you said, it's weird that the first loop vectorizes without the "cannot identify array bounds" problem, which makes us think that it's a bug. We have already written more complex code that vectorizes, thus showing us the potential of the auto-vectorizer, which we really need for our project.

Θέμα: RE: Vectorization fails when dealing with a lot of for loops.
Seems like when you comment out a loop in “compute” function, it gets inlined, this helps LV by finding the bounds and vectorizes it.
With the presence of all the loops LAA is not able to identify the bounds for the accesses:
LAA: Can't find bounds for ptr: %arrayidx.i159 = getelementptr inbounds double, double* %30, i64 %and.i158, !dbg !46
LAA: Can't find bounds for ptr: %arrayidx.i155 = getelementptr inbounds double, double* %36, i64 %and.i154, !dbg !66
LAA: Can't find bounds for ptr: %arrayidx.i151 = getelementptr inbounds double, double* %42, i64 %and.i150, !dbg !91
Its bit strange as its able to identify the bounds correctly for the first loop.
Without commenting the loop, if you make the “compute” function inline, it gets vectorize:
- void compute( size_t batchSize,
+ void inline compute( size_t batchSize,

[CAUTION: External Email]
Hello, could you please have a look at this code posted on godbolt.org:
The problem is that inside the compute function, only the first loop vectorizes while the rest copies of it don't. But if I remove any of the for loops, then the rest vectorize successfully. Could you please confirm that this is a bug, otherwise give me more insight on why the vectorization fails? The message "Cannot identify array bounds" is not helpful.
Thank you for your time,
