Performance Analysis Workshop

19-21 June 2018, UCL

This workshop is organised by VI-HPS for the UK PRACE Advanced Training Centre to:

  • give an overview of the VI-HPS programming tools suite
  • explain the functionality of individual tools, and how to use them effectively
  • offer hands-on experience and expert assistance using the tools

All attendees will be given access to ARCHER, however, all tools covered are designed for portability so will be applicable to any HPC system. On completion participants should be familiar with common performance analysis and diagnosis techniques and how they can be employed in practice (on a range of HPC systems). Those who prepared their own application test cases will have been coached in the tuning of their measurement and analysis, and provided optimization suggestions.

Programme Overview

Presentations and hands-on sessions are on the following topics:

  • BSC tools for trace analysis and performance prediction
  • Score-P instrumentation and measurement
  • Scalasca automated trace analysis
  • MAQAO performance analysis and optimization
