"Automatic Generation of Performance/Memory Models for Parallel Scientific Applications"

DATE: March 19, 2009

TIME: 15:00:00 - 16:00:00
LOCATION: Building 221, Room A216, Argonne National Laboratory

Optimizing large-scale scientific applications for a variety of modern high-performance computing systems is a non-trivial process given the state-of-the-art in performance tuning software. Current performance systems do not facilitate large-scale performance experiments that require multiple application runs nor do they present performance data in a form that would enable the application scientists to efficiently optimize their codes. We will present a component environment that automates performance data collection, storage, analysis, and visualization for parallel scientific applications. This system aims to enable application scientists to efficiently collect meaningful performance data that will facilitate their efforts in code optimizations.
