ProfiT-HPC. A Profiling Toolkit for HPC in Tiers 2 and 3
TimeTuesday, June 23rd4:28pm - 4:30pm
DescriptionMost scientists that are new to HPC run their applications on local Tier-3 systems and are content once their research problem can be solved on an available system in an acceptable time frame. The missing knowledge with respect to performance measurements will often lead to a lock-in, because they are not able to scale their calculations to a Tier-2 or Tier-1 compute resource. At the same time, Tier-3 compute centers typically lack sufficient human resources to work with each user individually on application performance. In order to increase awareness for performance issues and enable users to assess possible gains from performance improving measures, systematic, unified, and easily understandable information on performance parameters should be provided across all scientific communities.This especially pertains to the performance parameters of HPC jobs and the importance of performance engineering.
ProfiT-HPC toolkit provides various types of reports with different depth of performance metrics as well as recommendations which are more comprehensive than raw metrics.
