"Using Performance Models to Provide Efficient Programming Solutions on Multicores"

DATE: June 1, 2011

TIME: 15:00:00 - 16:00:00
SPEAKER: Van Bui, Predoctoral Appointee, MCS
LOCATION: Bldg 240 Conference Center 1404-1405, Argonne National Laboratory

Both the architecture and application software are changing in complexity and heterogeneity. A system can be configured for shared memory, distributed memory, or both. Algorithms can be implemented using multiple parallel programming models, singly or in various combinations. This can potentially result in many possible solutions to the same problem. Performance models are needed to condense the programming and design space and guide programmers and tools to more efficiently develop optimized code using very low overhead techniques. In this talk, I will present some examples in designing performance models and show how the models can be used in improving software design, performance analysis, and optimization.
