Performance Analysis and Visualization Tools for Scientific Computation

2:00 PM-4:00 PM
Room: Sidney Smith 2117

Developing an application program that achieves high performance requires a cycle of experimentation and refinement in which one first identifies the key program components responsible for the bulk of the program's execution time and then modifies the program in the hope of improving its performance. Performance analysis and visualization tools are crucial components for this cycle to be effective. The speakers in this minisimposium will survey some of the state of the art performance visualization tools, available in public domain for scientific computing, and will present trends in instrumentation and visualization for parallel and distributed applications.
