F01: An Introduction into Performance Analysis for HPC Systems with Open|SpeedShop

SESSION: F01: An Introduction into Performance Analysis for HPC Systems with Open|SpeedShop

EVENT TYPE: Tutorial

TIME: 8:30AM - 12:00PM

Presenter(s):Martin Schulz, Jim Galarowicz, Donald Maghrak, Mahesh Rajan


Performance Analysis is an essential step in the development cycle of HPC codes. In this tutorial we will introduce how programmers can approach this important topic and how they can analyze the performance of their codes using the comprehensive open source toolset Open|SpeedShop, which is being developed and made available through a close collaboration between the Krell Institute and ASC/NNSA. In this tutorial we not only will introduce the attendees to O|SS and its wide functionality, but we will directly focus on how they can use Open|SpeedShop’s extensive set of performance experiments to step by step understand the performance characteristics of their codes. We will focus both on node local (by studying global profiles, stack trace sampling, hardware counters, as well as I/O properties) and parallel performance (using a combination of tracing experiments and advanced analysis techniques). The latter will cover MPI applications as well as threaded codes. Further, we will discuss Open|SpeedShop's extensibility, which allows users to customize the tool set for their needs, as well as future directions, which will turn Open|SpeedShop into a fully modular tool infrastructure built on top of the Component Based Tool Framework (CBTF).
