Tools are becoming increasingly important to efficiently utilize the computing power available in contemporary large scale systems. The drastic increase in the size and complexity of systems requires tools to be scalable while producing meaningful and easily digestible information that may help the user pin-point problems at scale. The goal of this tutorial is to introduce some state-of-the-art performance tools from three different organizations to a diverse audience group. Together these tools provide a broad spectrum of capabilities necessary to analyze the performance of scientific and engineering applications on a variety of large and small scale systems. The tutorial will consist of one-hour presentations on three tools:
Presenters will provide demonstrations of real-world examples and based on available hardware will allow users to gain hands on experience with demonstration codes on large scale systems. This tutorial should have broad appeal to a large community as its content is suited for performance analysis on small scale server systems as well as Petascale systems.
