Performance Analysis Methodology Workshop
This 3-hour virtual workshop aims to give a solid understanding of the basics of performance analysis for research and simulation codes, using high- and low-level metrics.
The workshop can be taken independently, or as follow-up of the Performance Analysis Workshop series.
Workshop will be held on Wednesday (15th of December) 9:00-12:00 UTC on Zoom. The structure and content of the workshop will be as follows:
Introduction to the POP Centre of Excellence
Introduction to parallel performance analysis
We describe why it’s often difficult to understand poor parallel performance, introduce the profiling-optimisation cycle, and discuss some challenges associated with tracing-based profiling.
Introduction to parallel performance analysis using the POP metrics
We’ll introduce high-level parallel efficiency metrics and show examples to illustrate their usefulness in knowing what to look for in trace data.
MPI parallel performance analysis using the POP metrics
We’ll look at low-level metrics designed specifically for MPI performance analysis that measure performance loss due to:
POP metrics for OpenMP and hybrid codes
In this session we’ll describe some low-level metrics for:
Introduction to the BSC tracing Tools & PyPOP
