PATC training course "25th VI-HPS Tuning Workshop"

27 Mar 2017 09:00
31 Mar 2017 18:00
IT Center, RWTH Aachen University


This workshop, organized by JSC through VI-HPS for the German PRACE Advanced Training Centre, will:

  • 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

Programme Overview

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

  • Setting up, welcome and introduction
  • Score-P instrumentation and measurement
  • Scalasca automated trace analysis
  • Vampir interactive trace analysis
  • Extra-P automated performance modeling
  • Paraver/Extrae/Dimemas trace analysis and performance prediction
  • MAQAO performance analysis & optimisation
  • MUST runtime error detection for MPI
  • ARCHER runtime error detection for OpenMP
  • ... and potentially others

The workshop will be held in English and run from 09:00 to not later than 18:00 each day, with breaks for lunch and refreshments. For participants from public research institutions in PRACE countries, the course fee is sponsored through the PRACE PATC program. All participants are responsible for their own travel and accommodation.

Classroom capacity is limited, therefore priority will be given to applicants with parallel codes already running on the workshop computer system (CLAIX), and those bringing codes from similar x86 cluster systems to work on. Participants are therefore encouraged to prepare their own MPI, OpenMP and hybrid MPI+OpenMP parallel application codes for analysis.

Participants are expected to use their own notebook computers to connect to the workshop computer systems via SSH: X11 will also be required for the graphical tools.
